Isn't it great

I love not having to put my bike away for the winter. California is such a great place to ride.

Middle of January and it was 82 degrees today!

I suppose I probably should learn how to store my bike properly at some point but today is not that day!

Who knows...i might be happier if I did the "storage" thing. Instead I keep her ready to roll and ride whenever circumstances allow. I just came off a 5 week stretch where the weather, holidays, and schedule all conspired to keep me off two wheels. But boy was it nice when the temps hit 40 last Sunday and I got to run it good.

Enjoy the benefits of your locale so that we might know that somewhere someone is riding something somewhere.

Normally I would agree with you but it was mid 40's this morning here in FL. I left my house around 8 am today for a job interview at 10 am about 50 miles away. Full dress suit & tie under my leather jacket and helmet lol. No complaints I suppose.
