  • First ride of the season

    Temperature got up to 60 here in Indiana yesterday so I reinstalled the battery, pressed the start button, and it fired up strong after two revolutions. It had been sitting in the pole barn all Winter and I didn't do a thing to it. What a great bike. Ride route was nothing special, but it was nice to get back on two wheels again.

    Maybe another month and a bit before all snow wil be gone and road salt washed away. Looking forward to it too.

      Here in KC it was 67 Saturday and 71 Sunday although with hella strong winds. Got in about 150 miles total after I got the tags for the new bike Friday. Calling for snow and rain this weekend LOL.

        Yeah the route doesn't have to be special for that first ride. Just the feeling of twisting the throttle again brings an overdue smile.

          I graduate and I'm moving away from Arizona in May. One of my biggest anxieties is moving to a place in which I can't ride year round.

            Well just adjust your mindset a bit and think of what else you could ride! While eastern Iowa doesn't get the snow it did back in the 80's, I used to have snowmobiles and motorcycles to ride. Or maybe an ATV that can get through snow and mud. I find I enjoy wherever I am and whatever the season is, if I can find a way to play in it.

          Got up to 71 here in SE MA today... I rolled a couple of them out to run some errands on two wheels. Sure felt good to get the knees back into the breeze!
