Glad to hear it missed you. Looks like a good day here in Missouri, but getting to that time for all of us to watch for twisters.

Had a great weekend here, with yards getting mowed and a break to make some noise at Rory's range.

I've been having bad luck trying to do any flying. I planned on a few flights last October, and we had a snow storm. Tried again on December 4th (temp got above 40f) and the engine on the Skyray wouldn't start. That was it for the winter. Last Thursday was the first day this spring when it would have been a good day to fly and wouldn't you know it, the !@#$% oil refinery a couple of miles from my house caught fire and everyone in a 3 mile radius (ten miles downwind) had to evacuate. Sheesh!!

It’s been really nice here for a week now. Temperatures in the 22-27C (75-80F) range, sunny, almost too hot for me Smile Yesterday I took my Honda out for a little spin around the back roads, a little over 100km (70 or so miles). Found some nice new roads and  places I had not seen before. You never know what you’ll find when you start off with a full tank, no map, no GPS, no plan... The days are getting longer too, this picture was taken at 8.30PM:



At 9.10 I was closer to home, this is the waterfall upstream from my house. It is one of the biggest in Southern Finland as far as the height is concerned. The picture is taken from the viewing platform at about half way point.



Across the waterfall there is the board mill and some structures for the old hydropower plant built in the early 1900’s. The new power plant is underground and much more powerful. Actually it is pretty rare to see the waterfall “running free”, as the new power plant can handle all the water coming through most of the time. But there was a lot of snow in the winter and there is way too much water so they have to let some go past the turbines. The water level is exceptionally high downstream too, this is my “dock”, usually it is about a foot or more above the water level, but in the past few days it has been partially submerged.



The waterfall is mentioned in “Kalevala”, a book of ancient folklores and legends, and it has been an important part of history. The first water-powered mills were built in the 1600s, and the board&paper industry started in late 1800s. On the viewing platform there are a couple of old mill stones that were used to mill rye, oats and barley into flour using hydro-power. Great engineering considering the time. My riding gloves are there to give some scale. The stones are not huge, but I have seen a couple that were about 6’ diameter.



This was my weather report from the past week with a glimpse to the history of my locality Very Happy

Nice vintage Honda 350 twin there, good restoration job. You know what they say about motorcyclists - regarding where to go: younger riders set a destination; older riders set a direction. Smoking

Don't know about KariFS, but we're at  34.39 °N, a bit more south than both of you. This past season we didn't have a drop of snow at all, very odd. I take that back, we had one day with 21 inches (533mm) - 21 inches between snowflakes. lol!

Thanks George. The bike is partially restored, partially a "survivor". I don't think it has ever been completely apart, although most parts have been disassembled and put back at some point. It has about 26k miles, the previous owner had some engine work done (timing chain tensioners) and also he had all the colour parts re-painted to the original color and scheme. I have mostly just maintained it, set point gaps, changed the oil, set valve gaps, rebuilt the brakes, replaced the swing arm bushings and so on. It is registered as an "Antique" or collector vehicle, so the insurance is very cheap but the appearance needs to be kept original. So no clubman bars and reverse cone megaphones in the near future. I actually quite like this bike as it is, even though it is a bit small and the front end gets light in highway speeds. But it is the perfect toy for the back roads where the speed is max 50mph yet it never gets boring since there are no long straights. It is a bit of a people magnet too, easy to approach, and a lot less intimidating than for example a flat black Harley would be. I often get strangers coming to me at the gas station, asking stuff or telling stories of the motorcycles they or their granddads had back in the '70s Smile

Regarding the old and young motorists, I think you got something there Smile

The latitude of my place is about 61deg 30min North, about the same as Anchorage, Alaska. The climate is fortunately a lot milder than in Alaska, thanks to Gulfstream that brings warm water from the Caribbean. We have a lot of light in the summertime, for example today sunrise was at 4:38AM and it'll set at 10:05PM. The longest day is the summer solstice, this year it will be on June 21st, when the Sun stays up for almost 19.5 hours. It won't really get dark at all. I like it, but some people that have moved in from South may get insomnia Smile

Eric, thanks for the compliments on both the Honda and my country Smile I have traveled back and forth from Finland to USA (St. Louis and HOTlanta) when my wife and I lived there for a couple of years around the millennium. Can't believe it's been almost 20 years already... Anyway, it is a long ride, the worst one took 36 hours. There was a strike somewhere and our first flight was canceled and it all went downhill from there. Instead from Atlanta to Amsterdam and then to Helsinki it was Atlanta - St. Louis - Paris - Amsterdam (6 hours wait) - Helsinki and then bus home to Tampere region. That sucked! At best it was something like 18 hours door to door.

I liked it a lot in the USA, my only complaint in the Midwest and South was the summer weather. I just could not function properly when outdoors. Other than that, it is mostly fond memories Beer Cheers

Cool pics there Jason!

It was 94°F today, looking at 96°F tomorrow, and 98°F on Monday.

Dodged a storm yesterday, got really dark, weather radio in the garage went off, I ran around and put away the gardening crap, closed everything up...nothing. All the action was a few miles north.
