A Ghoulish Driver

Yes, I rode to work today.

I opened the garage door to this:

Dark and wet.

It rained during the night but had pretty much stopped by the time Billie and I rolled into the cafe for my morning bagel. Later on, during the ride to work I encountered a few drops of rain, but hardly enough to even mention. What rain I did ride through was at the beginning of my commute. By the time I got to the motorcycle parking lot the sun was making its appearance.

I wasn't surprised to be the only bike in the lot. There was a possibility of Thunderstorms during the ride home. There is only one other guy that rides on days like today and he is on holiday this week.

I left Billie to enjoy her alone time.
The Thunderstorms didn't make an appearance in the afternoon and the ride home was dry.

The leaves haven't really began to fall from the trees. Still it is the time of the year to be on the lookout for their wet slippery mess.
I did see a couple of other bikes on the road. Both of them were sportbikes.

Managed to grab a photo of one of them.

And, then there was this guy:

Even parked I could tell this one was a ghoulish driver.
A little closer look.
People are decorating for Halloween. It seems this custom gets earlier every year. Usually, I'm a "bah humbug" type about these sort of things but this made me smile. Actually as Halloween decorations go the concept that the owners of this house came up with win my approval.

You can see the RV with the ghoulish driver parked in the driveway. I love the colors.

  • 63F/17C and light rain to start, but clearing all the way to work.
  • 70F/21C and overcast for the ride home.
