As long as I can ride and find a carwash when I get home then I'll be doing what I can. Just found out my Mom's Mom died this afternoon so might be heading to southern MO this weekend instead. Either way

Thanks man - I know it happens and there's nothing anyone could have done about it. She passed in her sleep with no pain and my mom's handling it well so that's all I can ask for. Don't mean to steal the thread, hopefully some decent weather and 2 wheel adventure will distract from the loss.

Oh yeah, I'm riding. But looks like Friday is the better day.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Since this will be my first season riding with salt on the roads, does it make the roads slick?

No, but it will require that you clean your bike completely after you ride.

Yeah, I got the wash part covered but still worried about it a lil bit. My bike is pristine from the original owner and don't want to mess anything up. Thanks for answering my question tho

A warm front is pushing through (it's near the east face of the Rockies now) so we'll see nicer temps overall. And the Lake has a moderating effect on temps, so the city won't get as warm as it does in the burbs.

Forecasters are split on what Thursday's temp will be due to the speed of the warm air mass headed our way.

It's too early to tell what Friday will be like.

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

As long as my bike doesn't break down I will be riding to work and out and about after work. If anyone sees me on the side of 90 just wave and laugh at my lack of motorcycle repair abilities.

went out yesterday and today for a few hours, bike is now dirty as hell, in my opinion, totally worth it.

I spent 30% of my money on fast cars, 30% on women, and 30% on booze. The other 10% I wasted.
