Beautiful sunny day

I had some running around to do today but needed more carrying capacity than the bike provides so had to take the car but I did see quite a few bikes out and even 3 BMWs. First one was a silver RT in Lucan around 1:00 p.m. and then around 4:00 on the back road between Ailsa Craig and Lucan I saw a R1150C and an older BMW, maybe a red R75 riding together heading to Lucan. Wish I could have been out there but I had to be responsible and get some work done.

Re: Beautiful sunny day

13 C here today. Lots of bikes on the road, great day for the first time out. Still lots of snow on the sides of roads, but if the temp stays like today they will disappear soon. Looks like the back of old man winter has been broken.

Re: Beautiful sunny day

I managed to get out for a quick first ride of the season. It was @11 C at 2:00pm this afternoon. I made a run up to a local bakery / cidery just north of my place. Wasn't much...but it was a start!!

Re: Beautiful sunny day

I was in the red Fiat that followed you for about 2 km, starting around the curve north of Ailsa Craig and then you turned towards Lucan and I continued north. Looked like a great day to go for a little ride.
