Two Rides Two Day Before Thanksgiving?

Tuesday, November 20, 2007

Well, here it is, just two day before Thanksgiving, the day we observe to give thanks, and to feast as our ancestors did! Usually, is it a sign of the impending winter. Well, if winter is going to be like this, bring it on! It was sunny, blue skies, and around 70 degrees! I could deal with a winter like that!

My first trip today would just be more errands. Starting out heading east on Tenth Street to Franklin Road, then north. I veered off onto Pendleton Pike, heading north and east. I then turned back due north on Post Road, trying to get a glimpse of what I thought was an Red Honda Sabre like I used to own.

I dropped a deposit off at Star Financial Bank, then headed west on 56th Street. I turned south on Shadeland Avenue. It had been a while since I had felt this power of the 1800cc's, and I really wanted to open it up. I wouldn't get the chance.

I cruised down Shadeland Avenue to Tenth Street. I was going to stop at the Kroger anyway, and I …

The first cold ride to Sunday Breakfast

Sunday, November 18, 2007

As it always is in November, December, January, and February, sometimes into March, riding any time during the day can be an iffy option. I woke up on this morning thinking I would be driving the truck down town to breakfast. It was cool, around 38, and I though there was a chance for rain. The rain was delayed, and I thought I could brave the cold air!

I headed into downtown Indianapolis along Washington Street. After several cool miles that felt great, really awakening, I turned south on East Street, and took it to South Street, which I took west to Penn. The rest of the trip would be through a sea of blue, white, and horseshoes! Before Peyton Manning came along, you would not see this kind of tailgating! I probably could have gotten a pretty tasty breakfast!

I took Penn Street south, and meandered my way to Shapiro's. A lot of the regulars were there, and a good breakfast was had.

Just a side note, one of great importance. Earlier in the week, som…

First Thursday of the Month!

Happy Halloween everyone, hope you had a Boo-tiful Night!

It is time for another meeting of the Indianapolis Cruiser Club! This is the time of year when it gets iffy to ride, not only to meeting, but just in general. I guess my posts will get far few in between.

So I started out on the chilly night heading west on Washington Street into downtown. After passing the zoo, I turned north on River Road, and meandered my way to 16th Street. After barely out dragging a scooter, lol, I pulled into the parking lot of The Brickyard Inn.

After the meeting and dinner, I headed back for home. It was down to around 40 degrees, and I didn't feel like hitting the interstate to get home. I took 16th Street east into downtown, and went south on Penn. Washington Street would take me back home.
