Talking In The Groove

I know some of you are unable to ride due to the bad weather in your areas at this time and it's not my intension to bum you out or think lightly about your PMS situation. But I must say I had a riot of a time here in Kentucky this past weekend. Saturday it hit 55 and lots of sunshine some hard wind later in the day but it was no big deal and the LT seemed to come alive during the ride. I think you know what I mean,the motor sounds smooth the suspension feels responsive the tires seem extra sticky etc. There are many sweet little back roads in Kentucky and Indiana where I live and Highway 55 which runs all the way through Kentucky down to TN is one of those roads. I felt pretty good myself after fighting a cold all week and seemed to push the big gal a little more than usual and well you know what a rush it is when your riding hard on great twisties on a nice day. Spring will soon be here and we will all be rippin up the miles all over our beautiful states soon enough. So Saturdays ride was for all you who can't ride at this time due to the weather,"This Rides For You"! I think its a whole lot better than a BUD!

Clean & Wax = higher performance!

Shaftyone,
Riding this weekend was Awesome! I washed(Yes in shorts and a T-shirt) and polished my bike which I'm sure must boost performance and increase gas mileage too!(although not scientifically proven yet) I feel for you guys with PMS so I'll ride as much as possible for you guys to keep the KLT torch burning!

I'll be at Daytona speedway on Thursday for the Nascar Gatorade Duals. Yes riding the LT for the good parking!

Cool Sunshine Riders

You Florida guys got it made riding all year long! Washing your ride in shorts in February,going to the track in Daytona. It isn't fare it's almost enough to make a guy want to move there.But I like the seasons here quite a bit and the riding here in the Mountains of the eastern US is one of my greatest enjoyments on the bike,to flat down there for me. But I do desire the warmth I cannot lie,give me some 80's please!

Yes we can ride almost all year here, but in the summer the humidity is so thick if makes it hard to enjoy! Hopefully this year since I have the LT now we can venture north for some mountain riding maybe to the Training camp or the Honda Hoot.
