On a whim — prompted by grand weather and Kathi having no pressing items on her “Perpetual List” — I decided to get in a quick day ride on the GRiSO.  

I have ignored it lately, mostly because the Norge has consumed my leisure time with replacing its oil-pressure sensor. [If you care about that tedious story, see [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Anyway, called Jerry (“rustyrotor" here), who lives in Great Falls, and we agreed to meet in Leesburg.

… we rode on some fun back roads through Waterford and Lovettsville, Va., crossed the Potomac to Brunswick (Md.), then to Harpers Ferry and Charles Town, W.V., before stopping in at the (great) Guzzi dealer in Clear Brook, just north of Winchester — [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] — before doing a pilgrimage to my Moto Grappa in Cross Junction.

A great day.  

You all know how on some days one rides more competently than on others.  Yesterday was one of those.  

I was not Valentino Rossi, but I was — by Bill Hagan standards — really, really good.  I even touched down on the left side on one tight sweeper I know well on a local back road.  Exhilarating.  

Yes, I know most of you could likely lap me quickly, and I was probably slowing Jerry down, but I had a stupendous time.

Here are a few more pix.
