I received an expected phone call yesterday. My aunt in New York died. She had cancer, she was 87. In a little while I'll be getting on the bike and leaving the house. I have an appointment at the dealer for when they open. They'll be performing the 15K service on my 17 RGU (currently 15,450 miles on the bike). After which, I'll be getting on the bike and heading north. I'm planning on staying with my sister in NJ. I don't yet know when the funeral will be.
Going north, I'll be riding the superslab; need to make time. On the return trip though, I'm hoping to ride the Blue Ridge Parkway south. That's something I've wanted to do for a while now. The reason for the trip could be under better conditions, but the Power That Be doesn't explain (at least to me) how/why things get arranged they way they do. A short time ago, I had been speaking with Jacksprat56 about making a trip to ride the Parkway, it seems as if I'm going to be able to do it.
I'll try and take some pictures along the way (the leafs should be changing color). I've never posted anything from my phone before, so you may have to wait until I get back home to see them.
