Well Tyke and I started the day off with every intent of seeking and making new friends. While we did some seeking we found no friends.. Well not persay anyway.Haryley Davidson of Baltimore, yes yes I know I have been playing there a lot but we need a base of operation. Anyway! On to the goods! HD of Baltimore was throwing a free Biker Breakfast and where there is free food there is bound to be friends! So of course Tyke and I needed to make our presence known! We did show up and the pancakes were delicious and the sausages were great! Now I have to admit I have never had lemonaid with these items but it actually wasn't that bad. The band they had playing was good. Played some P.O.D which is a good band. Anyway a longer story short... I was hoping to maybe ease myself into a ride but I found no bites! So... I decided.. Why not! Lets shoot some roads Tyke and I. Get in some alone time.I will admit I hardly ever ever ever go on Solo rides. As a matter of fact this is my first on in MD. I did do the stupid thing and not told anyone my route but I did let someone know I was going for a ride. Stupid I know but all turned out well! So what is the plan then Tyke? You want short and sweet? You want to go for new or familiar? New and medium? Yes that sounds jussst right! To Pretty Boy Dam it is! We took a quick shot up 695 to Jones Fall Expressway... The directions are to follow so I won't give you the play by play on that, save you some reading!Sooo tooting along, Jones Falls Expressway is a very sweet road, not quiet what I am used to of course but still pretty sweet. Clean, nice curves. I would like to take a moment to point out the changing terran throughout this ride. Tyke and I went from forest, to field, to forest, and to actual farm area, to town, to forest, to field.. You get the idea right? It is kind of interesting as you can do all of this in the span of five miles or less.Alright now some analysis of the roads... Jones Falls, Falls road, and Beckleysville road are AWESOME! Beckleysville has this nice sweet curve that if you round it just right and twist the throttle it... Mmmm... Oh! Sorry! Right the roads! Most of the roads I was on were sweet not Goatish (pot holes). They were clean and I got greeted by many people albiet no Motorcycles. I was told these roads were fairly popular so my deduction on that could be wrong. Either way I recomend this route!( I have a photo ridelog of this on my bikerworlds page: )
