    This is an old camera bag that I cut slots in the bottom to slip the straps thru. It easily fits (and has) a gallon paint can.

    Nice, been thinking of making myself one of those!
    Couple years ago I tried riding home with a quart of paint. Got home and it wasn't there anymore. Bummer, I thought I tied it down real good, never felt it fall off.

    rphillips invited me to join him and some friends on a ride yesterday. There were three couples riding 2-up which was nice. Always good to have some ladies along. The goal was some pizza place up in the mountains near Chattanooga. Its a nice sedate ride through the rural countryside with good folks. Really enjoyed the company. rphillips knows some good people.

    The pizza place had a nice location with lovely views. But in spite of all the pizza's ingredients having been imported from exotics locations around the world, it was only ok. Seems having lived in Chicago for 15 years has made me a pizza snob.

    This ride actually had a couple of GS bikes. A pair of GSX1100s.



    The ride leader was on the Goldwing. He'd mapped out the ride and was following a GPX track but he needs a little more practice with it as we ended up making a lot of u-turns The ZREX looked like it just rolled off the showroom floor.


    One of his buddies was on this very pretty BMW


    And this Honda won the award for prettiest paint. Picture doesn't really capture it, but there is a tiny metallic flake in the paint that really sparkles in the sun.


    The view from the pizza place. The farthest bridge is I-24. At some point there must have been a wreck because traffic toward Chattanooga stopped for about an hour. Glad I wasn't sitting in it!


    We rode about 250 miles for the day. I continue to be amazed at the roads and scenery around here. Big thank you to rphilips for inviting me and introducing me to his wife and friends.

    Careful there Dave. One little slip and your bike will be water-cooled!
