Who Rode Today?

I had a great ride to work today.

Then went and rode a couple wheelies at lunch.

The SVS loves to ride wheelies. I can shift into 2nd and 3rd now. Just gotta keep a toe on the rear brake.

Anyone else ride today? How was it?

When I'm in the office I design different variations for outdoor and indoor warning systems (ie... tornado sirens)

When I'm on the road I do system start ups and train the customer how to use the system

I'll ride when I get home. That way I'll enjoy it instead of sitting in traffic trying to get in and out of downtown

For the record, only the SVS likes to wheelie. The nakid versions prefer to stay planted safely on the ground... no matter what. Trust me...
