How was the ride? Did you make it to the Canadian border?

We paid between $2.44 and $2.70 for a gallon of gas along the way.

We had sunshine the moment we hit Duluth on Friday afternoon until we headed for home Sunday when we got to Danbury, WI. for lunch. Danbury is when we put the rain gear on. St.Croix Falls is when we were riding in rain until we got to Betty's and parted way's there.

I didn't pay for the gas, but my Chetak took .997 gallons to fill it up.

Was it the best damn cherry pie you ever ate? Was it, Diane?

$7.98? That was for the whole pie, right?

Sadly, no. It was 'Betty's Pies'. Kind of like Starbucks, Caribou, or Dunn Bros. You pay a gazillion times what it actually costs to make.


I think Brad could have gotten his in a 'Pie Shake' for less, actually. :o)

I've rethought this. The pie was $3.95, ice cream $1, and coffee $2. So that's $6.95 plus 6% sales tax.

That's $7.37 total for pie.

I'm glad the scooter doesn't run on pie, that would get expensive.

It all depends on its mpp. With a high enough mpp it could still be a bargain. Course you'd probably have to give it a pie shake, and I don't remember if those were cheaper or more expensive.

And remember that the Bajaj is a four stroke. When you start getting into two stroke pie shakes, you have to factor in injection vs. premix.

If it was a two-stroke, I'd have to carry lots of pie oil.
