That sucks. PennDOT did a lot of tar and chip road 'repair' around my way, (SE PA), a few years back. They don't bother to sweep up the excess. Like riding through snow in a few spots.Remember the other day I was commenting on FM 470, one of my normally traveled joy ride road, having fresh tar and gravel? So today while out I avoided that area and went down FM 187 to avoid the mess. Well guess what, it's worst. Looks like I'm sticking to more northern and west roads in the near future. In the last part of video, look at right shoulder, that's about 3 to 4 inches this of gravel.
That's why i try to stay on nice roads and try to avoid riding to Home Depot or the hardware store on the Bike (pick-up nails, screws etc. in Belt/Tires), not looking forward to changing the Drive Belt or Tires..That sucks.

That's how I picked up a stone that poked a hole in my drive belt a few years back.
Nice ride, was that your new house you were showing off?@lesblank well I went back to the Richard B Russell scenic hwy you asked me to go North, unfortunately the camera had a depleted battery. However I did get a great, very cold ride in and rode Richard B Russell North and turned around and headed back South.
Looked like a beautiful day, it rained here all day. We need it so not really complaining.Left at 11am and went for a Ride, 78F when i left, high of 83F today. Rode for about 70 miles, Low fuel hadn't come on yet, went and got Gas. 148.3/3.2 = 46.3 mpg. Bike ran well, good ride, weather beautiful. Stopped at the store, got home at 3pm.

Thunderstorms here Saturday, it was one of those that made me get fully dressed in preparation, in case the house blew away. I usually don't ride the next day, give them a chance to clean the roads that were washed out with gravel etc. Roads weren't bad at all today. ThanksLooked like a beautiful day, it rained here all day. We need it so not really complaining.
I did do some Googling that gave the impression that statue was at the Buffalo high school. Google street view wouldn't zoom in enough to see it, but I figured if it wasn't there I might find something in town that would work. I actually saw a bigger buffalo statue after taking the picture I posted near a gas station, but figured my GoPro would capture it. It did, but not very well.Nice ride. Had you googled the Buffalo statue or just head up that way hoping there would be one. Noticed you high altitude was just a tad over 400 feet, didn't get altitude sickness?
