One last warm weather ride

It was going to be near 70 and I decided that morning to get one more ride in before things got colder.  I pulled into Highland Park’s parking lot, got out of the truck and heard a hissing.  Sure enough, front tire was leaking:

I wasn’t sure if I was getting any bad luck out of the way in the parking lot or if it was just the beginning.  After getting the spare on, time to go riding.

I was in such a hurry to get going that morning, I forgot that I didn’t have my skidplate on.

Mostly dry, but I still found a little mud:

Several years ago the view from this lookout was great, not so much anymore:

Coming down this hill, if you blow this turn . . .

you’ll be going for a little ride down the side of the hill.

I didn’t think I got going fast enough to get bug splatter:

It looks like all of my bad luck was focused on the flat tire.  The worst thing that happened was this new dent.  I heard the dull thud as I was riding the trail.  I really like riding at HP, but it hasn’t been easy on my pipe.  All the dents in my pipe have come from riding here.
