that's a really nice photograph. I like the perspective of the bike with the background. Looks great. Looks like it could be a brochure or poster for some ad campaign- maybe BMW? Nicely done.

Supposedly, Ben Franklin said beer is proof God wants us to be happy. So, does my love of beer mean I'm closer to Him?

We had our first frost Fri night. So Sat morning was chilly but the wife and I saddled 2-up and headed east from KC down 50 highway to a small town call Tipton, MO. It happens to be David Koechner's home town if you're a fan of comedy. There is a Dutch bakery there with baked goods and bulk products my wife enjoys using. I got the caramel pecan cinnamon rolls and some assorted jams and apple butter to take home for toast and gifts to family.

Then we headed south on highway 5 towards Versailles and picked up highway W. I don't think I had ever driven or ridden this 2 lane. It's a good one. It took us down toward and eventually across Bagnell Dam. It's been 30 years since I've been across the dam. Pretty narrow by today's standards. I guess the vehicles back in the 20s and 30s had no problems traversing that stretch of curbed concrete. The 50s/60s//70s touristy feel of the shops along there are very nostalgic and it was quite busy. It was homecoming Sat where homecoming began, my alma mater, University of Mizzou. We speculated the late season crowd might have been related to that.

We took the toll bridge along Porta Cima developments and down toward Osage Beach and across to Sunrise Beach. We grabbed lunch at Captain Ron's, a restaurant right on the water of Lake of the Ozarks. It seemed there was a poker run for boats as lots of end of season folks were checking in and expanding their card hand sheets. We had smoked and flash fried buffalo wings with sauce on the side and a platter of white cheese and beef nachos. Darned tasty with an Arnold Palmer.

From there we headed back north on 5 and went NW on 135. That's a 2 lane I had ridden just over the 4th weekend. Fun enough. Took a few back roads through farm country, through a small town of Windsor, MO, where I grew up quail hunting with my dad, and then back to 50 highway at Warrensburg, MO, home of the University of Central Missouri Mules. They're named for the world famous draft mules bred in the area and sold all over the world.

We cruised the 4 lane 50 back to KC and logged about 320 miles total for a beautiful fall ride. No issues, mechanical or otherwise. Next weekend is my grandson's birthday party on Sat, and my son and I are setting a couple tree stands on Sun prepping for bow hunting at the beginning of Nov. I'll be too busy to ride much before Thanksgiving. Here's to global warming and a mild winter!!
