It's That Season Again!
The weather is warmer, the oil in the motorcycle has been changed, the tires are in good condition, the carburetors have been freshly synchronized and every damn road in Franklin County is getting a fresh new coating of GRAVEL! Just a few weeks ago, I complimented Franklin County for being pro-motorcycle in their tourism propaganda and now it's Spring Gravel Season. Why would the county promote motorcycling in the area and then promptly coat every road in existence with tar and gravel??? It doesn't make any sense! Lure the motorcyclists into Franklin County and then laugh at them once they get here because they are slipping and sliding and falling all over the place on our wonderfully maintained back roads. Franklin County & VDOT, you both suck!
We don't have as much tar and chipping going on as we used to here in Central Pennsylvania but it can still surprise you coming around a turn or over a rise. It really gums up the works underneath the Vespa...
