It was actually a Christmas present from Hubby that I finally got around to installing and testing. And you know what? It works pretty good. Now I just need to figure out how to edit the videos so I can share them with you. Trust me, the raw footage would bore you to tears.
I tested it on the way to see the Farnham Colossi. So I could show you that not only was that a cool destination, the road to get there was awesome, too. As soon as I figure out this editing thing, I'll share.
Hubby and I have been off work since Wednesday and have actually gotten some riding in. About time, eh?
This is the type of weather we had for our long ride on Friday...
I mapped the route, but Hubby was leading. So I didn't stop to take pictures. Which is a shame because we covered some pretty interesting terrain. There was one spot the mapping software Hubby uses refused to take us (have a look at someone else's photo).
We actually ended up in the Shenandoah National Park. At one point, we crossed Skyline Drive. It was on US-211 just east of the Thornton Gap entrance when we saw this sign...

Our bikes are very light and nimble. And we're experienced riders. I can see a newbie on a big-ass cruiser flying through there now. Or trying to. Chances are very good said newbie would've flown right out, too, in a Medevac helicopter!

Not long after that, we headed back north through some VERY pretty country. That's Virginia horse country. You see nothing but huge fields surrounded by miles and miles of white fences with the occasional big-ass house (mansion) thrown in. Notice I didn't say McMansion? Those houses are the real deal. What I'll never understand is this... all those fields and we NEVER see anyone riding a horse. Heck, we hardly ever see any horses. Go figure.
Saturday we took it easy and only rode 93 miles. We rode up to Wellersburg, PA to visit our friends Kathy and Barry Spice who have a piece of property on the MD/PA line. We got to do some off-roading on their driveway. I'll have to see if I can get Kathy to send me a picture so I can show you what I mean.
We only stayed for a little while 'cause they've got construction stuff to do. After we left there, we went to Frostburg, MD for a wonderful Mexican dinner at El Canelo (more on that one, too).

I hope you are all enjoying your long weekend!
