Was a fantastic day today with lots of sun, very little wind, and temps around 54-58F. Needed to pick up a bag of tea and a few dozen pre-planting pots from my son's car while he was at work. He works at a coffee roastery that supplies several coffee houses in the area and also writes programs for remote ordering of bags of coffee and tea online from the business (iPhone and Android and web apps). His work place is about 8 miles away, a lot closer than his house. So off I go on the Burgman 650 with the new top case mounted and once again took the long route on country roads to get there. Rode 47 miles this time. That included a trip across the Mile Long Bridge across the middle of Saylorville Lake and then back across the dam at the southern end. Photos are from the dam. In the longer shot up the lake you can just barely see the Mile Long Bridge way out about 6 miles out at what looks like the upper end of the lake (about the left center of the photo left of the taller sign post). That bridge is actually only half way up the lake. It's fairly tall off the water, enough for all sailing boats to easily pass under it, with a low railing on each side... not the place to ride on a really windy day. There were other motorcycle riders out and about but not a lot. Many still haven't polished 4 months of dust off their chrome yet.
