odor du jour...
Just back from a fun ride around Ft. Bend County. Out by the Ft. Bend Sheriff's office cruising along I saw a festering, bubbling smear on the road. Black and white it was, mostly black. Long hairs. Blowing by, uh huh, the rancid odor du jour of greased skunk carcass roasting in the sun. Wow, it was strong.
Other odors du jour: freshly cut field, perhaps hay--clean and green with a hint of clover. On Highway 90 there is a place that sells top fill dirt, gravel and mulch. The mulch has a very organic smell, pungent yet pleasant.
My favorite smell: BBQ on a mesquite or oak pit. Riding by can make me want to stop. I savor those woody-smokey aromas.
In my home town of Durango, CO there grows a lot of wild sage and aspen. After a light afternoon thunderstorm, the sage perfumes the air. That is my favorite motorcycle odor du jour.
It is dry heat this afternoon, warm but not unpleasant riding as long as you keep moving. The cagers were pretty well behaved too. I am out early tomorrow morning. This could be one of those three tankful weekends.
stay safe everyone,

Thanks lucydad, the smell of that manure on 90 is horbid. Smells like a baby's diaper with Indian food in it, covered in burnt hair.

I like riding my two-stroke for the smell. I am running some Valvoline marine 2t oil and it smells fabulous.
