Sandy and I are heading down to Daytona Beach, FL for some rest and relaxation.
Will probably stop off in Daytona for a couple of days and then head down to the Keys for a day or two before heading back to Daytona for Biketoberfest next weekend.
See ya when we get back!

We are headed out for a much needed vacation. Be gone about a week and I will have limited access to a computer. Since we are out next week, I decided to go ahead and post the biker babe of the week for next week.
July 8, 2008 by Hersey · Comments Off on New Virginia Toll Lanes Designed to Create Congestion
Illegal political contributions helped an Australian firm land a lucrative toll road deal that grants the company unprecedented power over Northern Virginia’s transportation future. Last week, Transurban wrote and asked state lawmakers to return checks that the Melbourne-based toll road operator had written in violation of federal campaign laws. But the deal these contributions helped bring about has already been finalized.
In June, the US Department of Transportation created a first-of-its-kind $1.6 billion financing package that consisted of tax-free bonds, loans and state taxpayer grants to support the project that will add a pair of High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes to the Interstate 495 Capital Beltway just outside of Washington, DC. To this amount, Transurban only added $349 million of its own capital — less than the cost of interest — toward the construction of the toll lane.
