Default Anyone get to ride this weekend

Did anyone get to ride this weekend. The weather here in Becket was 40 been in the 40s. I live on a nice icy dirt road road and can not get the bike out. Can not wait for Spring to start riding again.

Yeah, went out yesterday. Located about a half hour north of Albany,NY. Nice to get out on the bike for a few miles. Put straight pipes and jet kit on my '85 Shadow so had to try em out. Going into the paint booth later this month so i wasn't worried about my salt/sand covered back road.

I made it 100 yards then realized I left my handlebars loose after putting on a rake kit.

It's snowing like mad now

I spent the morning finishing up my lightbar wiring, warmed up the bike, cleaned, lubed, and tensioned the chain, and went for a short ride - maybe 30 miles. It was a beautiful day, bit breezy maybe.

I did learn that it's still too early for fingerless gloves.

Looking forward to my next chance to get out.

I went riding Saturday. I was at the Dairy on Sunday, but drove in a truck. ( We were setting up the tent for the miracle ride booth ).
We got to the the Dairy @ 0700, and left @ 1100.

The car sits unused,
A summer breeze in my face,
I ride on two wheels...
