Getting Some Delta Breeze On Our Knees

2007 Triumph Tiger 1050 (yellow)
2007 Suzuki V-Strom 650 (blue)

We decided to take a break from all the yard work today. The metal steeds were calling to us anyway and I thought a good, vigorous ride would shut them up. [giggle]

Hubby checked the bikes to insure a safe ride. Then we donned all our appropriate riding apparel and left the house riding north on Highway 84 to a flea speck of a town called Ludowici, where we turned onto the Elim Baptist Church Road. This road meanders to just a little outside of Walthourville. Then we headed north west on 196 to the small town of Glennville. From there we hopped on the Highway 144 west to a place called 5 Points. Then we headed south down through Surrency on Highway 121 to Highway 15 south. Then a little ways down the road is a nice little back road called Long Branch that parallels the boundaries of Pierce county and Appling county. Then it's a hop, skip, and a jump to home. It was a great big fun circle. All in all we road about 100 miles. It was grand.

Now we feel tired, but refreshed and ready for more projects.

I'm glad you are having fun with your bike. We just had a bad storm with lots of hail.

That looks so much fun. You are too cool for me. I only ride bikes without motors and even that I don't do often enough. Glad you had fun :)

Georgia is so picturesque. It's lovely to ride here. But I do miss those wonderful curvy Texas Hill country roads though. We miss our Pappy Mascot too. :o)

Thanks y'all for stopping by. Ride Safe!
