WHO rode today 1-6-12 ?
« on: January 06, 2012, 12:24:28 pm »
Well it got to 55 deg. here in central Ohio today.  ;D
 The road salt was almost gone, and all traces of snow are history.
 Got a little over 100 miles in today, stayed on the main roads just in case, the backroads sometimes don't get the attention as the main ones do  around here.
Hope some of you got some riding in, as always, please be safe out there.
And please, ATGATT.

Glad to hear you're riding.

The last ride I managed was Dec 10/2011, and it was cool. Streets are now snow and salt covered here in Ottawa, probably won't get out on the Concours 'til late March or early April.

Winter project time!

Nice here today in central Virginia, weather mid 60's, a little windy. Did about 100 miles, mostly back roads. While there it has not snowed here,  tomorrow apparently is the last day for deer hunting and there are a lot of hunters in their hunting outfits along the sides of the roads, good for them but a lot of anxiety for motorcylists and other travelers.

Tomorrow's weather is forecasted to be similar, will likely do 100- 200 miles.

Ride Safe.

I didn't but I'm wishing that I had! Record, or near record, temps here in Northern Illinois today. The old record for this date is 55 and they're predicting 56. It's 50 right now. I saw a few bikes out this afternoon, 3 HDs and a Honda.

Almost 50 today in Salt Lake.   Tested the baker hand wings, my sv650 suspension and brake mods. Also, a few sx laps on the dirt track to see how my yz250/300 is jetted.  INCREDIBLE gift to be able to ride today in utah.

I got in a total of about 250 miles today. 85 on the way to work when it ranged from 28 to 42 degrees. It was very calm and I saw that full temp variation during the first 20 miles.

It was 73 degrees after work today, so I took the LONG way home. Also went by MotoLiberty and picked up a set of gloves with the gift certificate the kids gave me for Christmas.

55 deg in Pennsylvania today! Great weather, woke up early this afternoon to get a few chores done, rode Connie and didn't want to go home, but have to
start my 'morning routine', and off to work at 10:30pm.. Going to get some saddle time tomorrow and Sunday, maybe Monday?

Just moved from Western Wa to Eastern Wa and put the connie to bed at my folks place while I sort out all the moving details.  What a shame, cause it was almost 70 degrees here a couple days ago.  I'm headed to the folks Sat morning to pick my baby back up!!  I've not seen a winter like this.  Its time to ride..........

Saturday the 7th is a chili cook off at a Harley dealer in Sanford Fl and it will be 75 degrees, I'll certainly be riding over there.  Rode to work on the 6th, it was 45 low and 70 high, what a perfect day of riding.
