    Yesterday my wife and I went on the "Sweetheart Run" in Auburn, CA. The sky was blue, the temp was in the mid 60's, there were about 500 bikes there. Went up through the Sierra foothills. Not a straight, level road on the whole 50 mile trip. It was wonderful. Life is great again!

    Police escort was fantastic. Stopped the traffic at every signal on the way and waved us through. People waving at us along the way, oh my, it doesn't get any better.

    Start your engines, Ladies and Gentlemen, the riding season is here!

    Know what you mean about good riding weather. Been riding around Kern County, Ca for the last 3 days. Weather has been in the mid to upper 60, with one day at about 72. GREAT.:bigsmiley8:

    You're making us in the Midwest jealous!! I was able to get out last weekend in Central Indiana with the temperature at about 45. But you can see from my picture, I'm wrapped up like an Eskimo

    First local H.O.G. ride is March 6...can't wait!

    Ride Safe!

    Do you belong to the H.O.G chapter at Southside? I live in Indy and just got a bike and was trying to decide if I should join. Where will they ride on March 6th?

    Hello All:D

    My first ride on a touring bike with a passanger.:)

    Yesterday was on the 50's, little windy but compared to before was nice!
    I decided to got for a ride and take my son, WOW:bigsmiley30:

    My calves and chin took a beating, I kept getting wedged between the front and rear floorboards:wall on stops and takeoffs, not much room to play with ah? am used to just have pegs on the back.:26:....................

    Yep know that feeling. I picked up the bike from the dealer yesterday. It's about an hours ride. Spent most of today defrosting in front of the coal fire because at 5degr C it's still a little nippy.
