Noticed on a dinner stop on my 267 mile ride today that the odo was at 999. 23 days ago it was zero.

Almost to ONA !!!!!!

Noticed that the Red Ryder was getting close to 30 clicks and with a nice push of forty miles, it'd be well double of the mileage when I purchased it. I decided to head south until the odometer clicked over to mostly zeroes and see where I was when it all went down. Heading south on old hwy 37, I weaved my way down through the Florida countryside, passing ghost towns, phosphate mines and weaving back and forth over railroad tracks that parallel most of the road.

There are some desolate stretches as you go further down, and I found out that many years ago, some guys built an old power plant that is exactly 30,000 miles away from the dealership where this bike was originally sold! Lol. I pulled over and got some pics before too many numbers crawled back onto the odometer. The small (and I mean SMALL) town of ONA was just a few miles down the road.

I took another way home, weaving up through the mines and checking out their progress. Then, it was a leisurely ride back to the house. We've been having a particularly warm spell (been running the A/C for the past few days) but there was a cold front moving in. The miles around the small town of Homeland were absorbed between riding and looking at the clouds that pointed out exactly where the front was located. You could see a definite line where the front was located. I drove under it in Bartow and you could feel the difference in the air.

With the change in atmosphere, it stirred up a line of showers. I almost beat 'em home! I put on over 100 miles total and got wet on the last two of em! They were slow miles, so the rain didn't sting too bad. Lol. All in all, a great, memorable ride!
