    No work at work so I put the first 60 degree day to good use yesterday. I didn't ride real far but did ride for about 125 miles. Boy was that nice! Hadn't ridin since last October. Winters are to long. LOL:D

    Spring is on the way for us folks in the north. Do a good preflight check, get out the leather and watch out for the other guy. Keep the rubber down ,be safe and most of all enjoy the ride. God Bless!

    Thats a BIG 10-4. I put on all the leathers yesterday. Still a lot of (EDIT) in the roads from the long harsh winter. The roads are really showing signs from the snow plows and freeze thaw cycles. I saw a large hunk of cast iron from a construction bucket in the middle of the road. Be safe.

    I'm still waiting for my yard to dry up so I can get the bike out of my basement. I just can't hardly wait.:(

    OOPS I guess my language was to strong. Sorry. Read the giant "EDIT" as "Junk".

    Spring is on it's way and going to take advantage of the decent (54 degrees) expected today, just a short ride to get the vibes back in my blood. Winter is too long here in Wisconsin! Ride safe everyone!:bigsmiley12:

    Because of work and a schedule that gave me just enough time to hang myself, I only got to take my bike out for just a two mile coffee run. That little, first run since November, made my day so much better. Temps are back down to seasonal range today. Yesterday, it hit 70..A tease.
