Its' like 37 degrees out...

My car said 41 as I drove into the Loop. Freakin' balmy! I thought about putting the top down.

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

If anyone rides, remember PAY ATTENTION!! Salt on the roads and the melting snow make for a BAD combination. But yeah, spring is coming

I'm going to wait to take the bike out of storage and put the insurance back on until the roads are salt-free and there isn't snow in the forecast. Otherwise it's like Aria Giovanni coming over to my house just to say hi and then leaving..... a TEASE!!

FYI, the throttle will be a bit more responsive to be careful after getting the 520 put on.

Yeah seriously. my rule is I'll ride in anything 38 and above. With full gear on it's no big deal.

Silent, did you even get a bike yet?

I don't mind the cold, but I hate salt! It's going to have to rain hard before I think of riding.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
