So it was the first ride following the wee bike crash, probably the worst accident I've had in just over fifty years. Managed 50 odd miles, before retiring to the van with a headache.
Also, it was the first ride on the big bike. Although not what I would normally ride, it performed adequately. As a tourer you could see that it would do a great job of eating up the miles in a relaxed style. So all in all I was pleased to be back on a bike on the road again.
Passed from Louisiana into Mississippi (The Magnolia State, or Hospitality State).
Off to New Orleans tomorrow.
