How many of you had a great day and went for a ride? My day started after hubby changed the oil in his Husky. Then we worked on my SV, putting on parts I've been getting the past couple of weeks. First, seat cowl, new smoke Puig windscreen, Techspec pads, and motosliders. Then out for a ride. Since this was my first ride of the season, we took it easy. Rode some nice back country roads. The only bad part was the gusty wind. Going past open fields would move me from the right side of my lane to the left side, even with tacking into the wind. A couple of times, I eased off the throttle because the gusty wind scared me. Stopped for a coffee, then rode home. Tomorrow we change the oil in my dirt bike, so we'll be ready to hit the trails as well. I know all you people in the south and out west don't quite feel our pain of winter weather. However, winters make us appreciate the nice weather even more.

Its been in the mid 70's since thursday... :) Not having to ride wearing three jackets is nice, plus it means more people are up for riding :). I've been taking the long way everywhere.

Well I've been riding since mid Feb, but it was a beautiful day yesterday here in SW PA. We got my wife's EX250 out and she went on her first ride of the year yesterday morning.

Rode to work this morning 18 degrees from Arvada to Lakewood Colorado. Made the mistake of wearing summer gloves. My hands hurt so bad by the time I got to work that my stomach ached. But I'm getting more comfortable in traffic even though my bike wants to die out if I'm at all off the throttle.....carb probably needs cleaning......
