Anyone still riding?

With the weather we've had this "winter" so far, has anyone kept riding? I'm sure Vern has with his heated suit.
I've seen a few sport bikes out on some of the nicer days recently, but no one I recognize.

Got 150 miles in on Friday on the Speedy.

Got out Sunday to. 75 miles on the FJR.

Heated gear is really nice.

it's not the fall that kills you, it's that sudden stop

Maybe to early to ask this, but since the weather is looking nice (and my goal is to get back on my bike this year) when we starting bike nights? And are they still at CIB or can we go back to Portillos?

I got about 25 miles between the Duc and the Scramjam7000 on Saturday!! Woohoo. Felt good to refocus a bit. lol. Certainly glad the Duc has traction control. That goofy little light was on most of the ride!!

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.
