    Fluids have all been changed, bike washed and waxed ( with Pledge of course), TFI coming tommrow, weather sunny and in the 60's for this weekend.
    I'm as gitty as a schoolboy on prom night..............:newsmile011:

    Am I the only one who feels this way when the weather breaks?

    In a word NO you are not the only one. My new bride of 7 years made the keen observation some time ago that “you get depressed in the winter”. I never really gave it that much thought but she is right. I find myself thinking about riding again all the time and I console myself by doing maintenance and making minor improvements in anticipation. I thank God for all the beauty He has let me absorb these past 61 years (41 riding) and I hope it’s in His will to give us all another season. Stay safe - Bob

    I'm so antsy to be able to ride, that I can hardly stand it. Going out to the garage & even looking at the bike makes me anxious. COME ON SUNSHINE, GOOD TEMPS, & WEEKEND............Let's Ride:newsmile076:

    You are not alone my friend. My buddy and I are slated to head out first thing in the morning this Saturday, provided it doesn't rain. 40's never looked so good!

    Hey, that sounds normal to me. Out here on the left coast, we go into a funk coma when it rains on one day of the weekend. Man was obviously made to ride and when we can't, well....

    Well, no you aren't but I try to hide it. Some of my neighbors have called the police. It's embarrassing for me to try to explain my relationship with my motorcycle to them.

    No one understands me. :newsmile08:

    NO, you are definitely not alone with that feeling. It is still a little chilly up here in Michigan and the sun has finally come out the last three days. Sure would like to RIDE - RIDE - RIDE just a little. I don't want to take mine out until a little of the salt is off of the road, and it warms up just a little. Never want to mess up good oil.
