Liberty Road Ride

Saturday Slick and I, Jordan and my brother-in-law and sister-in-law took a little ride to a small town called Liberty. There is a short road there called Old Liberty road. It is a popular road for bikers because it has some pretty nice curves. The weather was great and the temps were in the 70's. Jordan was riding his VTX and my in-laws were on their new Harley.

Liberty road was a nice ride. The fall foliage was very nice and there was little traffic. I did shoot a video with my new Flip video with a camera that was mounted on my bike. The highlight of shooting the video was when some jerk pulled in front of me (turning left) and almost hit me. He was too busy looking at the gas station with cheap gas and failed to see our 3 bikes coming toward him. I am just glad that one of my good skills as a biker is being able to perform quick stops under pressure. Below is a link showing the jerk pulling in front of me going about 40 mph.

Except for jerk pulling in front of me the ride was great. I will be posting the whole 22 minutes ride in the near future on the Internet. Then you can see the nice curves and the colorful trees.

Until next time and remember life begins at the end of the off ramp.
