I got up yesterday morning and let the dog out. when I opened the door, it was really warm out side. I had some running around I needed to do, so I said what the heck, I think I might take the bike. I checked the weather and it said it was going to be around 49 degrees with a chance of rain later in the day.
so I hurried up and got out the "winter beater" the "Iron Maiden" (Honda CM400T, the Vulcans are put up the winter) and off I went. took a ride to the bank, then rode to Wal-mart for same oil and picked up a box of rounds (for some much needed range time). then rode back home. on the ride home, I pasted a sign that said the temp. was 51!
after I got home, I saw the buddy next door and asked him if he was going to take a ride today. he said hell yes! and asked me if I was going to take a ride? I told him I already did! then he called me a "bitch"-it's an on going joke thing we have between us.
after I changed the oil in the car, I took the wife out shopping (big fun, not!) I left the bike in the drive and by the time we got back it was raining,so the bike got all wet! this may not be a bad thing, I'm sure it helped get some of the road salt off the bike. I just rolled it into the garage and blew it off with the leaf blower.
I heard and saw bikes all day long! how could you not ride? 57 degrees on 12/31 in Cleveland, OH.! you gotta love it!
