Re: Saturday's ride

cops seen=o
top speed realized=141 indicated
miles traveled=134
states visited=2
quote ' you sure flew by me' my response 'I wasn't even gettin on it' his reply 'I never even saw you coming' my response'have a nice day' a Venture rider and his wife at the summit of Mt. Spokane. I had passed him and two cars right at the base of the mountain.
highlight of the day=2
1)rounding a corner and following a Black Bear cub about 100 feet before I could stop and reach for my camera and it scurry up the bank....no momma bear in sight so...see ya. Ran into mom/pop/daughter around the next corner(walking) and informed them about my sighting...dad's response...'the ranger said the bears were down low'
2)After stopping to take pics twice, the Venture rider/wife passed and waved as I was getting back on the bike...I caught up a few turns later and the pace kept getting quicker and quicker...until the straights turned into near drag races...I consistantly maintained a safe following distance and I'm guessing he was wishing he had left the wife at home as we had a pretty spirited pace going until he turned off at a diner at the base of the mountain...I'm betting his wife was a bit pissed,,,
low point=had to go back to work this morning and all day was thinking I should skip out early and go for a ride as the season here is rapidly drawing to an end.

regrets=not talking to the Yamerhammer driver more and finding out how to get in touch for a rematch...

Biggest regret...MONDAY!
