What a day for a ride!!!

It was 57 degrees here in Central Jersey so my buddy John and I took off for a short loop around Hunterdon county (2 & 1/2 hours).

What a beautiful day for a ride.

It was great, took a 100 mile ride Saturday and Sunday - felt great after a long winter.

Rode here too. Two of my buddies came over yesterday and we all hit the road. My neighbor across the street, "Nancy" I like to call him, even came over with his harley. I call him Nancy cause he doesn't ride unless its 70. He saw 3 bikes in my driveway and fired up his bike and went with us, I was surprised. Real nice ride, totally comfortable with full gear - I can't wait for consistently nicer weather...

It may be bad to be old, but it is great to be retired...
Turned down a ride with my buddies yesterday (Sunday) because it was still a bit on the cool side in the mountains for me...
Today (Monday) a different story, 72* and 135 mi. on some very good winding roads, almost burned all the winter tank of gas, a great ride about 65 mi. with a buddy and the rest by myself...
Have a good one...Old Dog...

You are wasting you money on anything over regular 87 octane gas. That`s what she is designed to run on.

How bout that weather!!

Got my bike out of winter storage and fired it right up. The first start up was a little rough considering it was about 30 degrees and I drained the carbs back in the fall. One problem I had was that the carb on the rear cylinder had a slight leak that I have never noticed before, but thats another post for another part of the forum.

So glad to be back riding again! Hope everyone has a safe season and watch out for those cinders!
