Thumbs up Woo Hoo . . . 1st Ride of the season!

It was 71 deg (21.7 C.) this afternoon in Northeast Ohio.

Extracted the wadded plastic grocery bag from the air box intake (mouse barrier), unplugged the trickle charger and she started up on the first push of the starter button.

Dressed in ATGATT I was off for the first ride of the season.

Selective perception:

Convertibles
Cages with open moon roofs
Mom's pushing strollers,
Hikers
Joggers
Walkers
Riders (waving)
Bikers (not waving)
Bicyclists (hogging the roads side by side)
Families picnicking in the park
Kids on the playgrounds

What a Wonderful Afternoon!

Re: Woo Hoo . . . 1st Ride of the season!

Good for you, Paul - and for the rest of the folks "up north". I heard from the homefront today that SE Ohio (3 hours south of you) had 60s and sun today. It's about time winter released its grip on you guys, at least for awhile. The end is in sight!

Re: Woo Hoo . . . 1st Ride of the season!

I will drink to that.
Haven't been out as yet but spring is definitely on the horizon. The cleanup has begun rain last weekend, melting snow/ice upper 30's and more 40's in the daytime all good signs. Plus I feel the itch
ride safe
