Thumbs up Yep, on a ride

Warm in MO too, but pretty windy.

I rode 120 miles anyway. YeeHaa.

I gotta promote more LT's for my neck of the woods so I can have company.

My decisions to ride are pretty impromtu so I usually ride by myself.

Glad to hear CT has warm weather too.

Bought used K1200LT number 3. This one is green/teal with 31,369(now 7/29/2018 54,143) miles and is an '02. The first 2 bikes made it to near 150,000 miles.

Due to heart health, the Dr says not to ride under 40 degree air temp. Ugh! Now it is harder to get my 18000 miles a year in just in the summer. Guess that stopped my 20 degree rides now.

Just back from about 80 miles with my wife. It was her 100th ride on the LT. Went to town to visit with family, and dinner. Hit about 45 degrees today -- not bad for mid-December.

Rode today to work

I rode in to work this Am. Foggy as all get out but an enjoyable ride. Might do some riding this weekend. Maybe Sunday AM. Although I may be riding the unpowered type of bike instead. DRs orders.

Hope you all have a great holiday season.
