Who's riding this weekend?

I saw the temps are going to be up around mid to upper 40's this coming weekend and possibly 50+ on Monday. Is anyone pulling off the cover and going for a spin or is it still too cold or salty to get out on two wheels?

Spring break for me this weekend, I'm planning to get out and do at least a little riding.

+1 on the salt though..we'll wait and see how it looks. Stoked about temperature though!

I only got about 4500 miles on last season. Hopefully with the longer commute and living closer to everyone out there I'll be able to double that this summer.

Nope. 4500 actually is still a decent number but no where near 14K

quit making excuses


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!
