Title: Sliimey Crud Run - Fall 2017
Post by: Bajakirch on October 03, 2017, 06:00:52 PM
It was a beautiful day for the fall rendition of the twice-a-year Slimey Crud Run, and aycaramba and Poligrafovich joined me for the day.


Here are a few shots from our outing.

aycaramba came in the day before and stowed the NH before the beers started flowing.

Short and sweet, with good pics. Gotta say, it was a great time, and I enjoyed the rides.  A little saddle sore at the end of the day, but well worth it.

Couldn't believe how many compliments I got on the NH. Even a few thumbs up riding out of town from Pine Bluff. I figured I'd be invisible to everybody, but people seem to have an affinity for the Nighthawk.

On the way home, I had one pucker moment. I was cutting through some back roads, trying to find a highway so I could get home before dark. Came up over a rise at speed and was surprised to find that the pavement ended and became a gravel road!

Much yelling in my helmet as I very gingerly slowed down so I could get turned around and find another way.  Not cool!

Adding a few photos of my own:
