Night Rider (Remember me when you look at the night sky...)

After working on the bike, today, I just couldn't help going on a ride.  The sun was down before I left the house, so I turned west and headed for one of my favorite nighttime rides: Lookout Mountain.  The road is temporarily closed, near the top, so I pulled off at the last overlook before the closure and took in the city lights.

There was fellow rider there, when I pulled in.  We were talking bikes when a third rider pulled in on a KLR 650.  He was a young guy, just out of college, and he told us that he was going to Alaska to be a fire fighter.  He is going to fight fires in order to make the cash to fund a ride to Argentina on the KLR.

He took off, after making a phone call, and the first fellow and I kept talking bikes for about a half an hour.

It was a fun ride, even though Brad and Randy were both unable to join me.  It would have been nice to make it a Scrambler run on the mountain.  As it was, the weather was fine, traffic was light, and the bike was awesome.

I love warm weather!

What fun! That's quite a view of the city. And it's cool that you ran into some like-minded guys while you were up there.
