A buddy and I took off today to visit Jesse Chisholm's grave. He was smitten with his brand new Yamaha with only 150 miles on it. We played a forum tag with some Adv Rider guy and had lunch at a cafe with an old oil derrick in the parking lot. It was a scenic ride in the rolling red prairie. Lots of windmill generation and oil and gas production too. On the way to Jesse's grave site the broken pavement turned into about 5 miles of gravel and about 20% of that was very deep and squirrely. Luckily I was on my Supersport, I was worried about my buddy on that Tenere thing. When I got home I saw the poor red bike still had gravel dust on left side chicken strip.
