Rode the bike today....!!!!!

Amazingly, we had temps in the mid 40's today and I pulled her out of the garage and gave her a spin. Kept her running for about 15-20 minutes to make sure and heat her up, charge the battery and burn up the fuel (that tends to leak into the oil).

It was great to ride the WeeStrom!!!!!!

Can't wait for the Spring riding!!!!

Congrats on getting out MAR and OMB - the weather has been nice this week. I'm lucky that I don't travel like you two do. I rode to work Monday and Tuesday last week and plan to ride everyday this week. It is supposed to flurry tomorrow, but I'll still ride to work. It's only a 10 mile commute.

Today here in Western North Carolina, the temps are no longer 15-25 deg. below average. My son has the second car and I need to check the mail at the post office.

Maybe I can work a 50 mile loop into the trip.
