Woo Hoo it finally warmed up (well kinda...)

OK 45 degrees this afternoon. I got out for about a half hour after work today. Man it felt good. Now I'm itching for spring

Yes, it's my mid-life crisis.

45 in Joppa, MD today as well. I rode 50 miles to nowhere and it was awesome. My last ride for a couple weeks, got a trip to Hawaii coming up and before that a new rear tire, spline lube and brakes, so the bike and I will be on the shelf for awhile. Glad I got out today.

Spring is less than a month away....

The Flag on my bike honors those who serve our Country and those who have served!

Made it over 50 here too. Of course by the time I got my new sealed battery charged and installed it was just under, so I got about 50 miles in.

Itching for spring, that's a gross understatement!
