    Light chill in the air, but the sun is keepin me warm.

    It sucks not riding for so long. I reverted to my old slow-bike habits and ripped open the throttle when I got on the road. I remembered pretty quick this bike has a LOT more power...

    Ha ha, no way, I've slid my cruiser on ice in turns and it ain't fun, not good for the heart...or the pants... :haha: :haha:

    Yesterday and today were dry and warm, if there were leaves on the trees I would've thought it was spring. The roads were mostly dry, wet here and there, and just a little pavement snow left that got piled by the plow and not driven over much.
    I'll ride below freezing temps with the right gear, but not if it's not dry and there could be a decent amount of ice. Definately not with snow on the roads, that just takes all the fun out of riding, way too stressful...

    When's your road trip, punk?? :D

    High speed air might be good. Don't ride if your head hurts, I need to ogle your garage again.

    Not written in stone yet, but looking positive. There's a slim chance I'm going to trailer the bike down. I need to really think about whether I'll get any riding done down there, it would suck to trailer it back and forth and not ever ride it all week. But it would suck to be in awesome weather and not have it to ride all week!
    I'll get you details as they come in. :waytogo:

    I took that night off just in case but if it changes, I'll change to that night.

    get here early enough and we'll go for a cruise too.
