Thanks go to Pete. He rode with me today.

The weather today was like a chamber of commerce postcard here in western NC. I made plans to skip out early from work today and riding Kitsuma.

Unfortunately I got there later than I thought. Not being that familiar with the trail, I was thinking of ditching the ride and heading home. That's when a guy in a Honda pulled up and struck up a conversation with me even before he pulled his GT off of his rack.

He wound up riding together, talking most of the way. Topics ranged from women to investments to political. As the ride ended (all too soon) we exchanged numbers and plan on riding again soon.

It was the best ride so far this week.
