Same here. But I'm hoping that it rains and gets out of its system. Then hoping my latest ordered stuff comes in Friday.
I'm tentatively planning a ride Sunday. First ride since my food poisoned-laden ride in January...
Turbos, Hondas, 4-bangers, what could go wrong?
Shiny: [...] Considering the weather you've had to put up with I'd say you get an Iron Butt award and a Frozen Nipple trophy to go along with it. First time I've ever posted the word nipple... it ends here.
Sometimes I love working for the military. Last Friday the CO let all us riders take the afternoon off for a "safety ride". The purpose was to ride a variety of roads/conditions, practice group riding, and talk about safety. We formed up in a parking lot near the office and inspected our bikes, checking things like tires, lights, chains (well, my chain, I had the only chain drive), etc. We discussed group riding and hand signals, looked over the planned route and set off around 1145am. We hit the interstate for a few miles until we got out of town and then exited on to a rural two lane through the Kansas Flint Hills. We stopped a couple times to chat and had lunch at a Dairy Queen. In all we rode about 175 miles and got back to work just in time to go home. I had another 45 miles to ride home so it was one of my longest riding days so far. There were only six of us. Two Kawasaki Vulcans, a Yamaha Star, two HDs. I had the only 4, the only Honda, and the only bike made in the last century. It was a great day.
