Not my first ride of the year, but it looks like there's a nice extended warm spell coming up and I'm ready to go...
We've just come off a nasty cold spell and the most recent snowfalls are just starting to melt away. We just got above freezing this morning and the temps are rising rapidly. The roads are pretty clear but, on the rural roads that I like to ride, I'm guessing there may still be some slippery spots in the valleys and shadows. I'll wait until tomorrow when it's supposed to get into the 60's.
My bike was down for new piston rings in December but other than that I've been riding every chance I get even in 30° temps as long as the roads are dry. Yes I get a bit chilly on my way home from work and get grief from the co-workers about riding in those temps but that's what leathers are for, the cold days right......Lol
