Wind Farm

I finally had a decent day to ride on my day off. About 90 miles North of me is one of those new fangled wind powered electrickle generating farms. They say there is about 200 of them; quite a site to see.
  The ride thru central Illinois was great; all good asphalt with very little traffic;
68 mpg and a sun burn!!

Very cool!  Wind farms are impressive indeed - we have several out in West Texas.

Just curious Mike - what is that mounted on your handlebar adjacent to the left mirror?
