New horse in the stable

Well, once again, new bike in the garage. Traded my Honda scooter for my son’s 2020 Kawasaki Versys X 300 adventure bike!

He wanted some extra cash and offered me a deal I couldn’t refuse! Great bike, similar to the Suzuki VStrom 650 I had a few years ago, only quite a but lighter. Old guys like that….

“My son, says the Lord, listen to my words,
the most delightful of all words, surpassing all the knowledge
of the philosophers and wise men of this world. 
My words are spirit and life and cannot be comprehended
by human senses alone.”

“The Imitation of Christ”

It was the perfect riding day, partly cloudy, 75 degrees. So took
a nice long ride with my son down the Mississippi River.

I’m getting to love Black& White photography more and more:

Horse Trader

Traded horses, from a 2007 Suzuki Burgman 400 to a 2015 Honda Forza 300.
Love them both, just went with a newer one.

Out for a little ride tonight. It’s HOT! But, the bright side is even the bugs are hiding.

Defying the Gestapo

Finally out for a nice long ride in the Spring!

The Emperor/Governor says “Stay Home”, so naturally I said….well never mind what said…

Riding north to the Winona, MN area.

Also, I went crazy last month and sold all my cameras, bought all new. Now using a Nikon Z 6 and Z 50.

My son and another friend Andy. Son is riding a Kawasaki Concours 14 and Andy is on his Kawasaki Versys 300. I’m in my Suzuki Burgman 400.

First Sunday of Lent – 2020

55° so just had to fire up the Burgman. Felt so good to be out on the bike again after a long cold winter in Minnesota.

My son is on his way home too, with his new acquisition, Kawasaki Concour 14!

Burgman 400

Out for a long ride today on the new scoot. Had a problem with the clutch but the dealer fixed it for free. The previous owner put an after market clutch on and it failed. Luckily I still had the original Suzuki clutch and that works perfectly.

It’s not the little thing that we usually think of when we say scooter. It’s a full sized motorcycle!

War

Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, with all malice, and be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

  • Ephesians 4:31

Out for a ride on my “new” scooter. Well, my other new scooter. I liked the Honda scooter so much that I traded it in for a newer, bigger, one. This is a 2007 Suzuki Burgman 400. I love this thing!

Went to Blackhawk Park, just south of LaCrosse, WI, and site of a battle between the settlers and Indians. A bad decision led to many deaths.
