It is FANTASTIC outside

So after sitting here all day looking at the sunshine, I decided to take a 10 minute non-smokers break and head over to Cold Stone for a quick snack.

My god. 75 and sunny.

Anybody who has a streetable bike should be out riding tonight. Too nice of an evening to miss out. At 4:30 this afternoon, streets of squidfield was already loading up with bikes.

Kinda wish I would've de-winterized the Softail so I could have ridden to work today... oh well. I'll enjoy myself having the windows rolled down

I *love* this weather - I gotta move out of Chicago to someplace where it's like this year-round....

I just got in from a little ride. Bikes everywhere. Noticed two groupings in orland within about 2 minutes of eachother. First group was about 5 bikes, then the next was a good 7-9 bikes beeping as they pass going the opposite direction. Makes me wonder how many times I've rode right past some of you guys and had no idea it was *you*.

It definitly was nice out today. First nice evening for riding this season so far that I can remember. Too bad it's supposed to drop in temperature as the week goes on. :/

HA

The optimist believes that we live in the best of all possible worlds...
The pessimist fears this to be true.

Cold air is GOOD No sweaty gear, no posers on the roads and the best NO HARLEY riders mucking up MY line on MY twisties. It hasn't been cold since like mid January Mikey Monday morning it was sunny and 28, great riding weather Yesterday it was 75 and sunny, way too freaking warm, it was awful, the tires got all sticky really fast

It was beautiful yesterday. I cleaned my 9R and my gf's EX500. Then redzx6r came over and we went for a ride along the river. Then my girlfriend came back from work and she and I went riding on the streets behind my apartment. It was her first time on the road and she did pretty well.

Bike night tonight?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I bleed GREEN
