According to his SPOT tracker he just rolled into his hotel in Charlottesville, VA. He's all yours tomorrow, Pat. Have fun!

I was looking at this foliage map. Are the leaves turning yet up there? https://smokymountains.com/fall-foliage-map/

Still pretty green up in my area Kathryn, but as you go north the colors are starting to pop. thumbsup

How's your dad do with (mildly) spicy foods? I came up with a pretty good burrito recipe I was going to cook up tomorrow. stir

Pat, I've tried to respond to your comment eight times and the bulletin board keeps eating my comment and displaying a blank space where my text should be. I'm not sure why. Will PM you.

Testing ... I think I know what happened ...

Pat, he can do MILDLY spicy ... he loves my crawfish etouffee which has a tiny amount of cayenne and Tabasco.

I did a wonderful tour of New England in October 2015 and saw some amazing colors - here's hoping Marty sees some on his way up to Montreal. Pictures here if you want to take a look: https://goo.gl/photos/bWA92yPq19wriZyD9

Aha, I know why that didn't work before. Etouffee has two accented "e's" and I think something in this bulletin board's settings won't allow accented characters. So it was eating my comment both on the board and in PM's to you.

Mystery solved!

Good luck Marty, ride safe.

Currently languishing poolside in Albufiera on day 5 of a two week break.
Just booked a Suzuki Burgman 125 cc for four days starting Monday so me and SWMBO will be exploring the area on two wheels.

Take care friend.

Had a long chat with the border guard. No one else came thru and he is a rider so it was fun. Bike is on the way to Frankfurt in about 2 hours. I'll follow tomorrow evening. Assuming all goes well I'll be riding in Germany by mid day tuesday.

Pat, it was great to see you and the family again. Brought back memories watching your daughter ride that pony.

At least you can manage 100! The only time I rented a vehicle in Germany - 30 years ago! - I had a Opel Kadet! It'd do a 100 downhill. 100kpm that is! Enjoy Marty!

In the few years I've been riding I've had very good luck with wx. This trip is making up for it. Rode the bike out of FRA cargo on the 9th in rain. It hasn't stopped since. No pics/worse than usual. Does the sun still come out? Has anyone seen it lately in the states? dopeslap cry

Thanks, Kathryn! thumbsup Marty too bad about the weather but riding your bike in Europe (rain & all) beats the heck out of not riding your bike and working in Mass. dontknow grin

Just a bit jealous. java

Marty,
Bad news about the rain.......to cheer you up, here's a photo I took last week whilst riding the Suzuki Burgman in the Algarve.........



By the way, the pink crash helmet belonged to my wife......in case you were wondering.... grin

I hope the weather brightens up for you buddy.

I hope things improve. The whole season here was affected by forest fires and road closures. Then there was the whole hurricane/tropical storm issue in the SE US.

I see David Swift is getting shut out from some passes by snow in the Alps.

Here's to some better weather beer beer

I'm currently inundated with reading assignments and have two papers due next week. I'd rather be riding in Poland!

Great to be here but I hope to see the sun before the trip ends. Roads have been great thanks to Traveller One's planning. thumbsup

If I get 1/8 the amount of riding when I'm retired that you have Marty, I'll take it.

Hope you are having fun. wave

Thanks MB, the sun came out today so all is well. I never sat on a moto till I was 59 so I've got to push hard to try and catch some of the youngsters. wave
