Title: Year end party
Post by: PlaynInPeoria on November 03, 2018, 01:38:41 pm
My buddy is hosting a party today, everyone will tell stories (ok, lies) and have pictures and video of trips from this year.  Alcohol and chocolate are involved.

Here's what I'm bringing, in chronological order

June ride in NorCal for my 60th birthday.  About 4600 miles counting the ride home to Peoria. It's called OW-X (Out West 10) because it's my 10th trip out west

2 videos of our most recent ride to PA and VA and WV.  OE-II, in case you're wondering

Short riding video of a great road

And I'm just sneaking this one in because I love this bike, my 2013 Aprilia Tuona. 7 more HP than the C14, 225 less lbs.  Power wheelies in 2nd all day long and the sound is other worldly

Blurred the background to make the bike pop?

Me too, but I like Conniesaki's better.

Yeah, and boosted the colors and contrast.

Couldn't you have installed a pit girl or two?
