Back home in Rochester, NY

...after continuing the scooter ride from Georgia thru
Tennessee [Deal's Gap motorcycle run]
North Carolina [Blue Ridge Parkway]
and a 2 day interState shot thru
West Virginia
New York.

Yesterday's last ride was chilly, but the entire 3 weeks were without rain.

Getting back to the chronological sequence of my trip, here's a few more pix:

On my 2nd day out, I rode from Fort Wayne, Indiana to the southernmost point of Illinois where the Ohio River meets the Mississippi River [405 miles]. Motels were scarce and the sun had set, not good when you're on a scooter during deer rut, so I stopped at the first motel I found. Regardless of how you and I pronounce the city of Vienna, Illinois, the locals call it "Vye-enna". For dinner, the motel recommended either a sloppy burger across the street or Mexican down the road. I had seen the latter on my way in and couldn't resist their assurance to disprove the roach coach mystique. The entrepreneur, himself hecho en Mexico, but 10 years removed, suggested the grilled steak burrito which was muy delish and enough to feed a whole lot of produce pickers [let alone one overweight gringo biker]. Did I mention he had Mexican soda? Pineapple!

Yes, that's my scooter ['02 Honda Shadow ACE] with pillion bag/backrest.

The motel also recommended that I start the next morning's ride with a short detour to Metropolis... home of my late 1950's hero:

Where's Waldo? Where's George? Where's Willy? Where's YardBoy?

I'm clueless about the first, but the remainder are on a 3 week scooter trip:
Windsor, Ontario
Georgia [as of tonight]

I left Windsor, Ontario late on 15 SEP after taking care of last minute call centre issues. From 1PM until sunset, I covered 175 miles:
across the border thru Detroit,
south thru Toledo, Ohio,
west to just beyond Ft. Wayne, Indiana where I stopped at a motel run by Punjabis. It was Monday night, there was a nearby Buffalo Wild Wings and that spells "football". Sure beats CFL ;^)

I've got more than 100 pix so far from an eye-opening and culinary tour. Here's a taste from Day 2...

This pic is my response to naysayers of wind power. Many complain about the "eyesore" of windmills and this snap is of a huge windfarm in Lafayette, Indiana from less than a mile away. Now I'll show you my interpretation of an eyesore from Duke Power near Mt. Carmel, Illinois...
