Took my dirt bike for a quick ride, rain coming in this morning, and from the look of the clouds coming, iam turning around and heading back to the swamp.

Finally since I got my new bike, it's really rideable!!!! Took it back to the bike shop, after I put the 3rd derailleur on this bike, and wasn't happy with it. Dropped it off at the shop, they called me said it was all set, picked it up, came back to the swamp. Jumped on the bike, the gears were jumping all over the place. Loaded the bike back up, back to the shop, told them RIDE IT. Don't just spin the crank in the bike vice. RIDE IT !! , they apologize took my bike.
I get a text message my bike is all set, no charge, they installed a new index shifter and cable on the handlebar , and readjusted everything. It's finally the way it should be.
my new peddles came in this afternoon too.

Don't know where to start, I canceled a bus run for this afternoon, iam getting burned out.
The sun came out, I loaded up my bike, and my truck lead the way a Cross the river ,to the .Mohawk / Erie Canal bike trail. It's to long a truck run, to make this a weekly trip, but I will be back, for fall foliage ride for sure. I made it pasted my original destination, the lock 7 boat launch, still no dock.
Anyway I road a good ways, climbed a big hill, and took a break, took some pictures, and my phone goes off, an email from a woman, I contacted about a bike she had for sale, we were supposed to meet on Wednesday, but she said she was home now, if I wanted to see this bike. I told her I was on the .mohawk bike trail, and a long ways from my truck, I told her iam going to head back to my truck, and I would call her then, and if it wasn't to late, then she could
Give me an address to see the bike. So she says the bike is at her boyfriend s place in Scotia, I told her iam half way there now, she said give her 30 minutes and she will .meat me there. So I buy this bike, it needs a lot of love, but you can't beat the price, $145.00 for a $700.00 bike.
So I got a great bike ride in, plus a new bike, all in the same afternoon.
And I have to say a lot more people use this trail
Than on my side of the river.
Leaving this trail head, I had to ride straight into the winds coming inland off the Great Lakes.

More from today's ride into the Gale force winds off the Great Lakes, you can see all these leaves being turned inside out from these winds and small craft warnings off the great lakes.

Well at least somebody around here is burning up some calories! Question on that bike you just picked up...(great price by the way)... was the "boyfriend" around or did she sell it "for" him? 😀 Heard of too many stories where a girlfriend/wife/ex will sell off stuff just to get at their (in)significant other! Hmmmm.......
