Independence Day was a good day to ride. We headed out toward Strafford, always checking the road ahead for trouble.
Traffic was light; a perfect day for getting out on two wheels.
In recognition of a blog buddy from southern Illinois, Barn Door, I proudly display this found treasure.
At the intersection of OO and 125 we found the State Highway Department had improved things a bit by adding a turn lane.
At the Strafford High School was this group of motorcyclists getting ready for the Fourth of July parade.
The fellow in neon green [I can't say 'leather vest' - they All had leather vests] said that last year the group was placed behind some children on tricycles and two of the bikers burned their clutch out by going so slow.
At the local gas station/pit stop we ran into Elvin, a former fellow employee of mine. He was out hoping to get 60-70 miles in. He was headed south to Rogersville.
In the background of the above picture you will see one of the cars that was bound for the parade. Love those whitewalls!
On the other side of the pump were three beauties that let me take their picture.
