September 3rd ride

The plan was to ride to Brookville, IN with my co-rider Angie. When I went to pick her up, I saw her neighbor Dave pull into his garage on his Harley. We went over so say hi, and ended up chatting bikes and routes for several minutes. Dave has two Harley Davidson bikes, one of them a brand new 2005 Road King. His bikes are in immaculate condition-not a spot of dust anywhere. He's been riding for several years and knows all the nice roads around the tristate area. He recommended that we head west into Indiana via US. 50 and follow SR56 along the Ohio river and even lent us a map.

It was was excellent day to be out riding, with the temperature in the upper 70s. Following Dave's suggestion, we rode to Cleves,OH and got on US50 into Indiana. At Aurora, IN, we turned onto SR56 west. There was a little bit of traffic all the way to Rising Sun, where we stopped to take some pictures by the river.

A few miles past Rising Sun, we took SR156 toward Patriot and Warsaw. Traffic was light, though we saw several bikers. Apart from being very scenic, with the river on the left and farms on the right, the road is also ideal for opening the throttle on a some of the straight stretches. We stopped in Vevay for lunch at Al's Diner.

Angie's folks have a farm up by Versailles, IN. Since SR129 was closed for construction, we took the detour via SR56 east to SR260 west to SR129 north. We showed up at the farm around 4pm. Angie's parents Jerry and Phyllis are among the nicest and friendliest people I've ever met. The rest of the pictures were taken around their farm.

The picture of those tall trees is very nice. And looks like somebody stepped on the snake!

Compositionally 4231 is by far the best :-) Still the camera is blowing out the highlights. See if you can get the camera when I'm there in Cincinnati over the 17th Sept weekend.

Nice photos.

Just a comment for those lovely shining peppers. If my memory serves, they are rated level 10 in terms of its "hotness". I still remember my hands were swollen for hours after washing and slicing theese babies. It's like my hands were cooked!!! Hehe, didn't know they are grown so close to cincinnati. I thought they were from asia or south america.
