Running roads in NW Florida

So I got up with Clark47 (Clark) and told him that CW-4(Dave) would ride down to Pensacola and show him around some of the back roads in that area. So I road 145 miles with a friend to linked up at a Waffle House on Mobile Hi-Way, which after eating there I don't recommend. My sister and her husband also joined us to ride. After talking about our scoots and mods we have done, it was time to burn some gas. It was a great day to ride, warm and sunny, so off we went. I ran some of the back roads that I traveled as a kid and after 125 miles or so, we ended up at Eglan Air Force Base to visit the Armament Museum. Once the looking around was done we had a late lunch and I departed back to Alabama and handed off Clark to Sis to get him back home to Pensacola.

Good time was had by all, I think.

THANK YOU THANK YOU CW-4 For comming down here for the ride. That was the best time I'v had out on the bike in a long time. Next time I'll head up that way and see what rides your area has.

After I parted ways with the other two I headed out past Destin and back just because I didnt want the rideing to be over. Then today I took off on 90W to Mobile and the USS ALABAMA DD-60. Unfurturenitly I forgot about the cooling problem untill I almost over heated in bumper to bumper trafic just as I got on the realy realy long bridge over mobile bay. So I ended up walking the bike about half of the brige untill the wreked car was moved and traffic opend back up. It WILL be corected tommorow I can assure you that.

Agin that was a great ride and it has to happen agin.
