All dressed up and ready for a weekend of twisties.

Routes 10 and 16 in West Virginia. Virginia 91 to 421 and 421 into Richmond, Ky. and then back to southern Ohio. Looks like the weather is going to cooperate and we are so ready for a nice getaway.  :046:

Sounds like a great ride.  I'm envious.  If I could suggest, you might want to pick up 58 where it intersects 91 and ride it east past Mt. Rogers.  The ride around Mt. Rogers is well worth it.

You are correct. That is a very nice ride, I have been across 58 many times. One nice thing about southern Ohio, I am less than a day away from some pretty nice motorcycling roads.

Enjoy your ride.

The picture from the back of your bike shows how much better your rearward view is with the extra mirrors, good job.

Later

Dave

The small storage pouches and the cup holder are items my wife picked up at Iron Pony Accessories in Columbus, Ohio. They are secured with velcro straps that just fit around the grab bars. She keeps small items that she wants handy while riding. Gloves, sunglasses, chewing gum, etc. The pouches are by Rapid Transit, the cup holder just says Iron Pony on the tag. She probably has $20 in the whole setup, but it does what she wants and that makes my life easier  :038:

Yes GarminDave the mirrors really are a great addition. I keep one of them adjusted so my wife can see behind us. She is really great at being the second set of eyes that we sometimes need when riding.

Looks like a great ride. I like the decal on the top case!

I'll be moved to Wooster in about 6 weeks. We'll have to link up for a ride.
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.
