Sunday Ride

I announced to no one in particular that I was going for a ride Sunday afternoon. After all, it was Father's Day and I figured I could do anything I wanted. My daughter chimed in, "I'm going too!"
So Sunday afternoon we followed US Route 40 east to Zanesville. US40 was, and may still be, called the National Road. The stretch between Hebron and Zanesville still has a few stone mile markers telling the distance between Columbus and Cumberland.

After about 30 minutes we reached the edge of Zanesville and stopped in at an A&W Root Beer shop. Parked outside of establishment was this high tech beauty...

At first I wasn't sure what it was, but then I realized it was a BRP CAN-AM Spyder. And of course I didn't have my camera with me so I used this web picture.

If I ever get too old to ride 2 wheels, this might be a good second choice.

We went inside and had a root beer float and then headed home. When we got home I took my wife for a ride to the same place (can't play favorites, you know) but the owner had moved on. I can't blame 'em. Something like that needs to be moving.

$20,000 to ride in the weather and have to look for automobile parking. Canadians must think we're nuts. I think we are as I've seen a few of these things chasing their tails on the roads.

Never thought about the possible parking issues. Still, its interesting to look at and you know how some boys are with new toys.

BTW, welcome back.
