Summer riding season is in full swing — a little later than usual. The nearby grain field is turning gold as this Honda Gold Wing rolls by. It’s been a cool wet spring, good for growing not good for going.
Even so, bikes are taking advantage of the weather. Highway 83 which runs past Wilton gets a good amount of traffic. It’s a good road connecting Bismarck to Minot and points in between. A late evening ride, this time of year, could be as late at 9:30 or 10:00 thanks to the tilt of the Earth on the axis toward the sun, and North Dakota’s relative position on the globe and on the time zone line. That means even though the season is short, the days are long, and bikers take advantage of it.
It’s just about every day that I’m out for my 1-a-day pics that I see bikes on Hwy 83, but this time, the light, the fields and the evening proved to be a better than average day for photographing motorcycles.
