Well, I installed fink and gimp. That let me play with cropping and resizing the graphic of my motorcycle ride from yesterday. Unless I mangled the HTML, you should see a small version of said graphic to the left of this paragraph. Click on it and a window will pop up with a bigger version of the picture if you'd like to see it in a little clearer detail. It almost looks like a one-way trip, doesn't it? Well, that's because I started at a point, went to another point, turned around, and rode back. I started at the bottom of the picture. I rode out Lake Brandt to Summerfield. By the time I was in the open country, the bike was sounding much better. She really was needing a good, dedicated ride of more than just a few minutes. There were a couple of good curves along the route. This is a route that I take when I don't have a lot of time to ride, but I want to get out for a bit. I used my GPS receiver to collect the data for making this map and uploaded it to my computer after the ride. It was about a 25 mile ride. I was out for about 40 minutes. Once my new battery is charged and installed, I'm looking forward to going out some day for a several hour ride in the country, maybe in the mountains on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
