      That plant looks pathetic, and somehow it still lives…

      Gassing up in Canmore

      At the Old man's place in Red Deer

      All loaded up

      Drained the fork oil today… probably the first time since '79

      First ride Alberta side.  Wind off the snow covered field was a bit nippy….

        Welcome to the area as well…just wait until summer…where you parked you bike, on a hot day the Bikini’s are thick!!  You are better off pulling over and walking…might get in an accident!!

        As for the other pics you took…I have a few from the same spot…

        We’ll have to take a ride out to Abraham Lake (near the gates to the Icefield Parkway…road between Banff and Jasper)…really scenic…almost like home (I moved here from Castlegar in 1988) 

        It would be nice to ride with someone that doesn’t have atleast twice the power of my bike…no offence lonesoldier (over 4x my power…??)

        Later.

          I can just imagine what trouble one might get into on a hot summer day there!

          Speed depends on the wind… Sometimes it’s hard to get out of 3rd gear.

            Cool…I’m more into touring around than speeding around…I just like to get out there and don’t really care about the speed…you thinking about doing to Calgary tour?  or is that kinda stretchin’ your bike?  If you can hit 100kph, you should be fine…we will just avoid the main hiways… 😉

                Hey, I’m pretty happy with anything with wheels and an engine (within reason)…with my style of riding, I may end up going cruiser but not sure at this point…I am still having an awesome time just getting out there…

                Later.

                    Wheels and an engine… And if it starts easily and isn’t a pain to work on, even better!  8)
