Re: First ride this year

You guys are living in the wrong part of the country! Here in the pacific northwet I was off the old girl (LT) for about a week due to threat of ice and snow.

The tupperware makes all the difference in the world in the rain but no amount of plastic can protect you from the wretched ice and snow.

Welcome back to the world of riding. May you have a long and safe season.

Re: First ride this year

Be patient gentlemen to start your engines.

I did my first ride a couple weeks ago. I went through my pre ride checks a little hastily and then off I went. 60 and windy starting out and 70 when I reluctantly brought her in treat of a storm which did not materialize until I was home in bed.

I am the one in the wrong zone 3-4 months of winter. But when it comes I make the most out of it.
ride safe
