What a day yesterday, like someone just flicked the switch and said "here's summer, NOW", awesome!
I chose to bail on a likely perfect rip to Winthrop, to wash my bike, and then hit some altitudes that were slightly above the Cascade summit.
If you're gonna ride a Strom, my feeling, best to keep it clean, already has too many strikes against it in the beauty department
My Dad and I, after both washing the bikes, decided to head out to Abby, to check out his new toy, that shared living quarters with his bike:
I have not been up flying for 20+ years, and was something I grew up with as a kid, so was pretty excited to get "back in the saddle".
Really neat lil plane, called an Acrosport II, which as you can clearly see, is a 2 seat, open-cockpit biplane.
Has 180hp, and is just shy of 1k pounds, so any aviation enthusiasts will recognize that this is a real little performer.
We went out for a short flight, about 45min's, over Chilliwack, so I could practice a few steep turns, a wing-over, and then my Dad did one loop before heading back.
Had a blast, and took a couple very short vids, one taxiing, and one quick one of a loop.....a GoPro would very cool for something like this, my lil Vado was just not wide enough to really capture it as well:
