Man, do they roll up the sidewalks there at 9 o'clock? Or is that early early morning?

Is it 5am?
fish is 1st on the tarmac. His coffee awaits him.
He wakes to an alarm that plays,
"Morning has broken like the first morning....." :P and then off he goes!

The early rider gets the road!
Great pics!

I have been to the Arctic when the sun wouldn't set completely and it was like just before normal sunset, but all night long.
I have been to the Antarctic when the sun wouldn't set completely. Same thing. Your body gets confused and doesn't know that it is well past bedtime. They usually had to send someone up to the flight deck to let us know that we needed to sleep. It is so easy to keep going and going, not realizing that your attention span is getting worse. Accidents happen easy enough without adding exhaustion to the mix, but your body doesn't let you know because it thinks it is still daytime. Very weird.

Not sure where you were going with this ----
interestingly Serling owned a place situated very close to where my scooter is parked in these photos.
Some locals told me this.
Nevertheless, my favorite burg in Ohio.
And, yes - waiting for the first coffee shop to open just across the syreet, at 6:45am. I head out after gearing up for the cold at 5:30am.
Fyi, street lights are the new cool LEDs.

Just goes to show you it's a small world indeed. I had no idea Rod Serling was from your neck of the woods. Wow indeed! I just thought that old episode was worth mentioning. Your pics do have a bit of a "Twilight Zone" appearance of isolation, being frozen in time, like you've got the whole place to yourself. Good quality!

Our town has been getting more LED lights installed on the streets also.

I've only been through Ohio twice. Back in the '70s when I rode with my college motorcycle club out to Colorado on my Yamaha TX 650A. Camped out in Youngstown on the first night heading west. Can't remember the name of the camp ground but I remember the owner wouldn't let us ride our bikes to the camp sites. . .we had to walk them in. In the meanwhile a lot of kids were riding little trail bikes all over the place and they didn't seem to care about that. Life is weird sometimes. That being said at their entertainment area it was all "Country Western" band music. . .no Rock or R&B for sure. On the way back it was raining and we just kept going. Lot's of hills in PA. I remember seeing lots of corn as it was getting near harvest time. It was my one time big cross country motorcycle adventure. Getting to the summit of Pikes Peak and going through the sites at Mesa Verde made it all worth while. Lot's of other cool stuff to see also. Back then slides were the big deal. :lol:

Lived in your neck of the woods yrs ago. Well, N.E. anyway -- Amherst, MA.
In the 60's Amherst was a town very much like the one I freq here in Ohio. Except of course for all the colleges in the area. Hope it hasn't changed too much.
I don't seek desolate riding areas -- just prefer to ride my scooters at a time of day which does not subtract from time with tbe family. Plus I have fewer drivers to deal with. Rode twenty something miles to my village this daybreak and passed not a single car.That kinda thing...
If I lived in NYC I'd be doing the same thing. Disappointed that no one posts pix of their scooters out in a city like NY or 'Frisco, etc.
Those would be great to look at!
Ride safe, friend.

Here's one more Zone clip. . .a classic! I can still remember watching this on the Zenith. . ."The quality goes in before the name goes on". :D

The one that I remember and liked the most was the one where there was something on the wing of a passenger plane that was enroute to somewhere, and only one person could see it. Scared the crap out of me as a kid, and I wouldn't fly for quite some time because of it.
