Saw one last night in the Twin Cities metro area around 7 pm or so.  Geez it was about 30F degrees.  They exited 36 on Rice street.  Just seemed like a strange time and place to be riding.

Having said that I'll be riding my bike about 60 miles to it's winter resting place tomorrow when it's supposed to be in the mid to upper 40's F.  I'm okay when it's at least above 35F.  I really don't want to hit ice while on the bike. 

We went from temps in the 70's to snow and cold in about one week here in MN.  It hasn't been warmer than 40F for about 3 weeks.  Most of the time it's been below freezing.  The lake froze over this past weekend which is very early.  We need more global warming up here in MN.

I was toasty warm in the car this morning (34 when I left the house) and was passed going over the Altamont Pass by a Concours with soft bags on it, but could not tell the color or year (it was dark out).

What is the deal with soft bags? The bike comes with normal hard bags?   ;)

I need to get out riding soon, but feel a cold coming on. I have not been on the bike in a few weeks now. Bike is on a tender, so it should be fine when I do get around to it.

Probably dropped the bike multiple times without side protection and decided they couldn't afford to replace the factory bags :)

My wife and I met up with a friend of ours on The BRP yesterday. We stopped off for a break at the exit that goes down to wintergreen resort. While we were there, I saw two C-14’s (not together). One was headed north on th BRP and the other was headed off the BRP toward Wintergreen.

I also spotted a C-10 in the parking lot of Devil Backbone. Anyone here?

A day late, but I spotted a Black Connie on Route 10 by the new Kroger headed toward Chester at around 4:50pm yesterday. Anyone here?

I thought I saw a blue C14 on VA route 5 on Saturday (4/29) but wasn't sure (we were both moving fast :) )

Was it Saturday 4/28, or Sunday 4/29? if it was Sunday afternoon, It may have been me. I did a charity ride with a group. We did the five and dime from Richmond to the Ferry.

Nope, it was 4/28 and the bike was alone.  But we are fated to meet or at least cross each other at some point.

Love that ride! Have done it many times.

It's nice that they painted the rail to match.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.
