Sounds like it was a good weekend for riding. I got in a few miles yesterday as well. Roads here were pretty clear - just had to avoid some ice that remained in the neighborhood in some of the really shady areas. Actually had my winter gloves on and my hands got too hot!
Today I freed my Vulcan from its winter coat and hit the road for the first "real ride" of 2009 -- 50+ miles on Sunday, February 8. It was sunny, low 50s, and just a little wet here and there from the snowmelt. And no bugs on the windshield! :smiley_th
At the end of the ride I topped off the tank with fresh gas, poured in a dash of Seafoam, and attached the trickle charger. There will be more warm-enough winter days before spring!
I'm from Columbus, Ohio and I had my first ride today also. I even had time to fix the mailbox someone ran over. The person who ran over the mailbox didn't even have the courtsey to leave a note... Go Figure.
A little breezy here this weekend, but otherwise nice weather. Saturday, had to run to the store. Made a 3 mile trip into a 60 mile ride.
Sunday, filled the tank and hit the highways and biways. Got back to the house and had put 120 on it. Really wanted to keep going, but it looked like rain was heading our way. Did start to sprinkle a bit about 10 minutes after I got back.
It was 59 and sunny here in Philly yesterday. I gassed her up and put about 70 miles on her. It was windy as hell, especially along the river. Great ride though, lookin' forward to more days like yesterday...

I finally managed to get out for awhile today!!
For the most part, the road were pretty dry, but there were a few wet spots and plenty of cinder, sand, salt and gravel spots to watch out for!
Certainly felt good to be out again!!
