Nice Weather

The weather this week has been heaven, it's 74 degrees out right now here in Central Arkansas and the 10 day forecast has the lows at 45 and above, and the highs in the 60's and 70's with six of those days Sunny or Partly Cloudy.

I had my other bike (Buell Blast) out yesterday and I had a mesh jacket on and mesh gloves again. I'm just hoping the weather holds with the cold winter we've had here in AR so far.

Has anyone been able to get any riding in recently in other parts of the country?

Sounds like our weather has been identical this week, it was 74 today, and I've been riding to work this week...

Heh, heh, heh....I live in south Georgia, 40 miles or so above the Florida line.

I've been out riding most of this week (and last).

As you might guess, around here we ride year round........

Tend to ride all year as well, but we've had a lot of rainy days recently, and the weather has been well below freezing for a lot of the winter it seems. Wonder how it'll affect the insect population here. :-)

Not much riding being done here in Western PA.
Last week we had some snow, then freezing rain, followed by more snow. Most of it has started melting, but when I left work tonight, alot of what was melted was freezing again.
I did see one guy on his knee scraper on the way into work. Might have been about 40+ out.

I'm waiting for my new helmet to be shipped after a recall. I knew it would be perfect weather...

If ya can't do that, maybe just enjoy your next ride a little bit more than normal, for me

Did they replace it with the exact same model?

I think so. I'll see when it gets here. Someone on the yahoo group just got theirs and it was identical, minus bugs and scratches.
