    With now having the lower seated RT, I though might be better able to handle wife as passenger. And she expressed interest in trying that out. So we went for a short ride, and it was better than on the previous RT. So Friday we rode on roads along the Grand River into Grand Rapids (~25miles) to a family restaurant there for a late lunch. And then back. Near home, coming to a stop at a light in left turn lane, I noticed some debris in that lane, and when I put down my left foot, my boot slipped quite a bit, was a patch of some oil or xmission fluid there. I dont mean it was a bit slippery, I mean my foot slipped a ways. Was able to get foot back under me and also tilt bike other way to hold with right foot. And push back with right foot a couple steps to get away from the slick patch. Had that been on the other RT, we would have gone down for sure. Then I notice the debris in road looks kinda like fresh crash stuff, and then notice two cars up ahead off the side of the road and a cop car there. One car leaving and cop giving ticket to other driver. I was going to pull up next to cop to report the slick spot, but I thought they were gonna needs some time to chat, and was no good place for me stop. And wife was already annoyed with the situation.

    No pics. That is part of wifes conditions for going for ride.
    Has to be between this and that temperature. Not this certain busy road, not that busy road, and not the highway. No more than so many miles. And Had better involve lunch or dinner or at least ice cream. And not stopping along the side of the road for pictures.

    Over all it was good. She liked it.

    THat evening we went to the beach (without camera) for a walk in the water together. (just ankle deep. Water temp 68 which is about not bad for July).

    Was a good day.

    Sunday evening I went for ride most of the way into Grand Rapids along some interesting roads, and then back a different way on other interesting roads.

    LOL....Well yes, but there is a story. The town was officially named "Lake City" in 1936 after the dam was built.
    But in 2014, they changed the name to Rocky Top, after a lengthy court battle over the copywrite.
    It is also the official song of the University of Tennessee sports teams.
    More if you wish...LOL... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocky_Top,_Tennessee

    If you have noticed fewer obnoxious loud bikes around your area the last couple days .. ..
    .. .. .. it is because they are all in Muskegon Michigan this weekend.

    Muskegon Bike Time Rebel Road.


    I took the Shadow500. Thought that would be better at working the stop-n-go down the street with people walking thru, and easier to park then the RT.

    About 8 blocks of downtown Muskegon (including the HD dealer that is an entire city block in itself) and sidestreets closed to cars. Bikes parked along both sides of the street and a row down the middle, and a few large parking lots, and side streets full of bikes.
    Tens of thousands.
    95% H-D.
    And most loud.
    Was even a loud FJR.

    I walked the entire site, looking for food vendors, and vintage bikes.
    Saw a couple KZs and a few CBs. No GSs.

    Found some good BBQ ribs to eat - and then got out of there.

    I took advantage of a nice cool morning and went for a ride in search of the elusive standing monument that defines Nebraska. Had to go early as we are just beginning a 10 day stretch of high humidity and temps in the upper 90's to 100+. Summer time in the plains states, oh yeah. But to be fair, it's getting mighty toasty all over.
