Wink New Years Day Ride

Mine was short but just the fact of being able to is aw-some. Just went around the neighborhood and to the quick stop for some liquid refreshments. I really like having that top case!!

Lef home under cloudy, cold (41), and windy conditions. Little bit of light sprinkle here and there. Rode from Nashville to Chapel Hill to Columbia and back to Nashville. 100 miles round trip. Cold feet, cold hands, but any ride is a good ride.

Hi. My time was limited, so I just took the V-Strom, the GS550, and the CM250 on short rides around the neighborhood. Today is the day we put out our garbage, and you would think that the day after a long weekend there would be lots of wonderful stuff to recycle. Not today. Perhaps hangovers and gloomy weather interfered with good intentions.

Let's hope for sunshine next weekend when Brendan comes to Florida.

Best wishes for 2007.

It was 37 degrees here and overcast. I went for a short ride, and wouldn't you know it the rain started. Got one pic before getting too wet:

Oh well, supposed to be nice later in the week.

Pushed the wee out in the driveway and set on it, does that count? 33 degrees and snowing.

It's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow.

Started the day at dawn with a hike at Red Top Mountain. Came home, took the Golden for a walk and endless ball throwing, then rode my 24 year old Honda VF750S to my son's shop and took the Wee he is rebuilding for me out for an clandestine ride (no tag) and shared an empty road with a Ducati that came out of nowhere. Great way to start the new year, doing the things I enjoy best.

So I broke out of the house arond 11:00 and headed for my favorite short trip, Malibu Canyon. After watching a couple of numb-nuts' racing each other through lanes on the 405 I hit the 101 and eventually made it to Malibu Canyon...

Enjoying the solitude of the empty roads I wandered up to the overlook and what to my bewildered eyes do appear??? An impromptu car show...

So anything goes out here in the hills.

I hope this helps those Troopers stuck inside. Happy New Year!
