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.

(I'm in the north Texas area.)

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.

mid 60's here yesterday. Dropped off the Connie for the 600 mile service, picked up the Vulcan from her 50k mile service (plus front spring replacement and new bearings) and picked up the Connie near the end of the day. So no real riding, but both the girls got a short trip. Soon as I get my risers on, I'll get an hour or so in to test them out this afternoon before I have to meet other commitments.

Edit: Mid 60's again today with nothing but sun. Farkled her up and did a 60 mile loop to check out the new set up.  8) 8)

Got my priorities in order today, but it was short. 45 miles, total enjoyment. Great day.

Rode today (1/7/12) to air guard duty here in PA. Started in low 30's but low 60's by the end of the day.  :)

I was out yesterday! I wish I had made it to the Cave Day! Too many responsibilities...
At least I got to run my errands on two wheels!
This is getting weird for Minnesota though.

It is less toxic than the embalming fluid that you dip your see-gars into.   ;D
