Mine.   Very Happy

After pecking out the title, supposed this could just be in the "What Did You ..." thread, but here we are.

It was a big day for muzhik (Scott), and riding my GRiSO was only a piece of it.  Even bigger news was that this was his last official day on active duty in the U.S. Air Force.  

So, after out-processing from the USAF this morning, he came out to in-process ... on a GRiSO.  Scott has been "shopping" for a GRiSO for some time, but unable to ride one.  He lives only about an hour away in Maryland, so I offered.  The stars aligned, and Scott drove over to Cross Junction.

After a quick lunch -- during which I checked his driving rap sheet with the Virginia State Police   Very Happy  -- we changed into ATGATT and launched.

After running a few miles north up unchallenging U.S. 522 for familiarization, we did 50 or so more on roads that were worthy of a GRiSO.  While appropriately wary of dumping another guy's machine, Scott could ride and did.

I almost dumped my EV in sand on a sharp uphill curve, but survived to tell the tale ... even if my sphincter is still fused.   Shocked

Here are a (very) few pix of today's activities at the top of Virginia.

Oh, and while I have posted this before, I think, here is a vid of some of the roads we were on, though VDOT sand and cinders slowed our pace more than the vid's riders!





So, now ... what will muzhik do?  Wink

Bill, I can't thank you and Kathy enough for being such gracious hosts and even more so for the opportunity!

Your words are too kind. I think you could tell I was a little rusty in that I wasn't picking my lines well and shifted mid-turn with a distinct lack of finesse at least once that you noticed affraid

Nonetheless, you let me carry on.

I am forever in your debt.

Last, but not least, thank you for thoughtful gift. It waves tonight and shall wave at least every year on September 18th (the AF Birthday).

What's the date today, Bill? Shirt sleeves just a week after St. Paddy's Day! Must be something to this global warming after all.

Bill, we need more guys like you in the USA. And your Ms. must be out of the same cloth.

Nice vid, a little more brown in those bushes and it could pass for country NSW. You guys must have a lot of accidents though driving on the wrong side of the road like you do!
