Okay, it was pointed out to me by Troubadour that it isn't really playing hooky from work if your boss 'likes' your Facebook status in which you announce you are playing hooky from work to go for a motorcycle ride.
My boss was scheduled to have some minor neck surgery yesterday and he will not be back in the office until next Wednesday so I get to set my own hours for the next week.
What to do????? First order of business was to take a day off work and go play on the bikes in the crisp fall sunshine. I packed us a picnic lunch of sandwiches stuffed with Tofurky, vegan cream cheese, avocado, and spicy sprouts doused with jalapeno sauce along with a container of home brewed iced tea and we set off about 11:30 am.
Troubadour has already posted up about the
covered kissing bridges. While he was busy setting up the tripod I was taking pictures of the bikes and surrounding scenery.
Here are some of the pictures.

I have a few more random pictures taken yesterday but I will save those for a follow-up post.
