Glad September is here in New England! Temps in the low 50's this morning for the ride to work! Leaving the house it is still dark.....slight chill in the air. Put the mesh touring jacket deeper into the hall closet and pulled out the leather one. Thought about getting the full face out....but it is not that cool yet so pulled on the head sock under the 1/2 helmet. Firing up the bike it just sounds different for some reason......not bad or good.....just different. Let it idle for a little longer to warm up.......kick it in gear and its off to work. Little bit of a chill coming through the leather and through my jeans that makes me sit tighter to the bike to feel the heat from the motor. The engine runs "tighter" on mornings like this.....the slightest nick of the throttle and she just takes off! After 40 minutes on the highway I'm feeling the chill now but just thinking of how the ride home in the sun is going to be awesome. Just as I think of the sun it rises over the trees for the first good stretch and I can feel it warming the leather and my back! God I love riding in September!!!!!
