Newer Zoom/New Zoom 2


I guess it’s finally time to explain this post.

This actually happened back in August, I’m still kind of foggy about how it all started. Dan was looking at motorcycle ads, then we were talking about and comparing different touring bikes. He then found a 2012 Venture at Romey Cycles: great price including a five year unlimited mileage warranty and not terribly far from home so we planned a road trip to check it out.

When we parked (Old) Zoom in the dealership lot that Saturday morning I didn’t realize it was the last time I would see it. Went inside, saw the new bike…they offered us a good price on (Old) Zoom, got financing, lots of paperwork & signatures and we rode off on our first ever brand new vehicle!

I never did find out what happened to (Old) Zoom. Our salesman said the guys in the service department were pretty excited about it, a few of them showed interest. After checking both their pre-owned inventory and cycletrader.com for almost a month and finding nothing I hope that’s what ended up happening.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mine


We did a 310 mile ride yesterday into Virginia and West Virginia. This is my view looking back on Wolf Gap Road in VA. It was taken by turning almost completely around in my seat, a task made difficult by speed, the twisties in the road, and trying to keep the New Zoom’s two antennas out of the shot (easier to do that than deal with them in Photoshop).

This is the first time I actually made an effort to get photos from this angle and definitely something I’ll try again.
