Ok, winter is over, but...........

Spring is getting ridiculous! Now I have 2 bikes I can't ride. The ST1300 and my Wee are nearly as bored as MEEEEEEE!

I have yet to turn my heated jacket off full blast!

This weekend was too miserable to ride here. Sunday was ok, but I still couldn't get out for a ride.
I'm doing an off-road course next sunday that is a 4.5 hour ride away from me. I hope the weather isn't miserable for the weekend.

We've been getting a lot of 50+ days (F). Warm enough to ride, but not when wet. Good luck with your ride, but Mother Nature can be a really cruel lil hag!

It hasn't kept me from riding, but all of the water is delaying my first hang gliding flight for 2019!

80 + here last week, too warm too early. Thankfully it cooled down to mid 70's, clear blue skies, and terrific riding. Gotta love the PNW.

Was it really 75 in Beavercreek today? That's only 1.5 hrs south of me. It was 47 here today. Yahoo surely must be wrong?
