We couldn’t have asked for a nicer weekend to go for a ride on the motorcycle. Saturday’s weather was sunny and warm. The sky was blue without a cloud in view. Sunday’s weather was a carbon copy of Saturday’s weather, except that it was warmer. We went for two motorcycle rides this weekend, riding approximately 315 miles over the two-day period.
On Saturday we rode with our friends, Susan and Dave, to Linesville, PA. En route Linesville, we stopped at Clear Lake Park in Spartansburg.
We rode a bit farther and stopped at Ice House Park in Conneaut Lake.
I think we were at Conneaut Lake all of 10 minutes. We stopped there to discuss where to eat lunch. Instead of turning the key off, Bob hit the kill switch. When you use the kill switch to turn off the motorcycle, the lights stay on. When we were ready to depart for Linesville, where we decided to eat lunch, the motorcycle wouldn’t start. Dave and Bob pushed the motorcycle up an incline. Bob coasted the motorcycle down the hill; it started right up. We didn’t have any more problems with the motorcycle rest of the day. We rode the 8-10 miles to Linesville and ate lunch at Rebecca’s Family Restaurant. Our meals were good, and we enjoyed an amicable chat. We began our ride at 12:30 PM. We rode 170 miles and returned home around 8:00 PM.
On Sunday we rode with our friends, Susan and Dave and Shelly and Bob, to Erie, PA, where we stopped to see the Vietnam Moving Wall.
After seeing the Moving Wall we ate lunch at Steak ‘n Shake in Erie. After lunch we began our ride home. We took Rt. 20 out of Erie. We made a brief stop at North East, where I asked a young man to take a photograph of the six of us.
From North East we rode Rt. 5 along Lake Erie to Westfield, NY. We made one more stop before returning home. We stopped at Tim Horton’s in Jamestown, NY. We began our ride around 10:00 AM. We rode rode 145 miles and returned home around 7:00 PM.
I hope that we have a few more weekends like this before the end of the riding season!
