got out and rode today

It is +2 C in Edmonton today. I haven't had my GT on the road since December 3rd. Main roads are clear with no ice. I think I will fire the girl up and take her for a 30 minute spin. Thankfully I have Gerbing pants and vest or I would freeze my _____ off.

Re: got out and rode today

I live just outside of St. Albert. They usually get out and clean the road by 6:00 A.M. the day after a snowfall, so the street was clean except for the sand. I rode down highway 37 and then onto highway 2 North. Once you get onto the major highways the riding is pretty good .... just cold.

Re: got out and rode today

I am riding my bike back from Vegas that weekend. I should be back in town that Monday afternoon. If you are still around let me know. It would be great to meet you guys and have some coffee or dinner.
