Talking out past Brenham, FM 390 etc

MH,

After church and lunch my buddy Ed and decided it was such a fine day to swan out 290 past Brenham and ride little FM 390. This is a pretty and a bit twisty and hilly road including a narrow underpass/bridge and lots of scenery. We had a very fun day.

The small block goose performed like a champ at 80-90 on the freeway. It comes into its own on the narrow twisty: the most fun riding I have had in a while rolling hard through the "20 mph" corners. Bicycles were about though, so care is needed, of course. Naked bikes are more work on freeways, Ed has his BMW 1200 tourer, but we took breaks. It was a three tanker kind of day, and I am a bit fatigued after 250 miles or so. Breaks were necessary for safety and comfort and a small coke revived me just inside Houston on 290 after dealing with the cagers.

Maybe my next dream bike is evolving, add a small sport tourer with a windshield and upright seating? Ed had a new Garmin GPS: very cool little toy.

Time for some red wine I think, and maybe fix my famous spaghetti.

I love riding this bike.

We liked it so much we went both ways for a repeat. Ignore the gravel signs: the road is in fine shape. Watch for bicycles, etc and slow way down for the cross under, single lane bridge. It is a great little road if you like curves and hills!

It's beautiful in the spring time when all the flowers start blooming....oh sorry I had a little gay moment. But you really have to watch for people slamming their breaks and pulling over in a split second in early spring.
