WOW-Weather in March--Ride Clyde--

What about this weather here in the SE, 80* and expecting near 80s Sunday thru Wednesday......
We did about 120 mi. Sunday around about in some good single lane twistie back roads, then up Thru Shelbyville & Wartrace... I did about 100 mi. of twisties Tuesday down thru Lynchburg to Petersburg & back, then yesterday we rode via Sewanee & Sand Mtn. to Trenton Ga, & Cattanooga and back up thru Tracy City for about 165 mi. ride......
Have a good one...Old Dog...

Weather great here also. It has been around 60* for a week and going to the 70s next week. I have been riding the past 4 days. Seems odd to put the snow blower away in March and get out the bike.

Well another great day, don't know what the temp was all day but if was nice & sunny and here at 5:45 pm it's 81*...
We had a good ride down to Signal Mtn. Tn. and rode the W-Rd., it was a good road, much, much different than it shows on the map, most of the roads getting there and back were good also...



Anyway, I rode 172 mi. of mostly twisties, and that alone made me pretty happy...
May do another ride tomorrow (sorry workin folks) takin 130 & the back roads to Lynchburg, then Hwy 129 out thru Petersburg & on over to Lynville Tn. ...
I just gotta ride while I still can, believe it or not, at 75 YO I'm not the oldest rider in our lil group...lol...
Some of the tales told sound more like an old circus riders club...lol...
Have a good one...Old Dog...

Well OD you are making me jealous!
I`m looking out the window at big ol fat snowflakes drifting down and covering the bare lawn.
I heard earlier on the radio that we are in for another good dump of the white stuff.
Oh well, we need moisture. The farmers are already worried about drought this summer.

I remember you sayin that earlier, it has been a warm wet one here, sure hope y'all don't loose the hay crops due to the cold dry winter...
Hopefully we don't pay for the warm with tornadoes either...
BTW-My first over $4 Obomgass too...

Had a pretty good ride today something like 170 mi. on a nice Sunday afternoon...
We rode up to Rock Island state park & Great Falls Hydo and back using mostly back roads, or at least the 2 laners...lol... I believe that is where Sylvester Stallone did some scenes in "The Specialist"... I had done some work there at Great Falls Hydro, but was long gone when he was there... Nice ride since it had been a good while ago that I was there...
Have a good one...Old Dog...
