2020 Fall motorcycle trip

Day 6

October 6


The trailer is packed and the bike is warming up. There's always a little bit of sadness that vacation is over, but we'll get to see Buford. We hit the road at 8:31.


It was extra chilly this morning. A smart guy would've worn the gloves he bought, but not me.


The Kentucky Castle. We passed it a couple times but today I got a picture. It's now a bed and breakfast.


Westbound and down on US62. I'm feeling the cold this morning. I rarely use my heated grips but today they are cranked up.


The old railroad bridge near Lawrenceburg looks eerie in the heavy fog.


Lawrenceburg, KY. 9:17, mileage 106,059 - Fuel for the bike and coffee for Donna.


On our summer trip we found that KY-44 was a nice road to ride from Shepardsville to Louisville. KY-44 starts in Lawrenceburg and today we'll ride it in its entirety. Here we are riding through Taylorsville.


We had a couple antique stores to visit today. The first is in the tiny town of Highgrove. The stop couldn't have came at a better time for Donna's bladder.


Unfortunately, Useful Things Antiques is not open today. This out-of-the-way place might hold treasures.


Fortunately, the Vendor City Flea Market in Mount Washington was open and warm. Donna found several items here, and we loaded up the Dumpster one last time.


KY-44 between Mount Washington and Shepardsville.


We arrived at Mike Linnigs Restaurant a little after noon. It wasn't busy at all.


Soon we were feasting on their deluxe sampler plate. We get one and share it, and there is still a lot to take home.


With full stomachs we crossed back into Indiana on toll-free I-64.


One last stop for the trip. Huber Winery in Starlight, Indiana. Donna needed to replenish her wine supplies.


From Hubers we came back via IN-60. Here we are coming into Salem. I prefer to drive through town instead of taking the bypass.


Mitchell, IN. There used to be a Dairy Queen next to the CVS. It was damaged by a tornado and sat vacant for years. We were disappointed when it was turned into yet another Subway.


If a trip has to end this is the best way...with Buford kisses. He missed us and we him.
