It's the middle of November, so ride reports in this part of the planet are getting more scarce, so trust I may be forgiven for this post being GRiSO-less.
Wait a minute. There is a glimpse of my GRiSO in at least one pic, so this is not entirely devoid of GRiSO content!
So, a Guzzi friend in Rochester, N.Y., has a wife who is as indulgent as my Kathi. She and their daughters surprised Bob 10 years ago on his 60th birthday with a new Guzzi. They recently reprised that gift with another on Bob’s latest. Priceless!
Guzzista and N.J. friend, Nick, and I saw this as an opportunity and excuse for a road trip. After all, a new Moto Guzzi must be blessed with Grappa!
So, Nick and I rode from here at the top of Virginia to Rochester this past Sunday, spent Monday in area, and came home on Tuesday.
We were blessed ourselves with some incredibly fine weather on all three days, but were sure glad we got home before yesterday’s drenching rain.
But, of course, you ache for the pix.
The link opens in what Smugmug calls “collage landscape,” which means you can see all of the pix at once. And, if you care, hover your cursor over a pic to see the captions. Some captions are truncated in the wee pix, so — again, if you care ;-) — open the guilty photo to see the full comment.
Blessing Guzzis in Rochester
P.S. For the nervous “Kovid Keepers” out there, know that, with occasional exceptions, Nick, I, and the others followed the rules in public. Well, OK, with the possible exception of our actual invasion of New York State without a C-test! :-)
