  • Tired of not riding!

    It’s been raining almost all winter and I have worked nearly 500 hours in just the first 2 months of this year. I’m disappearing on a motorcycle for a day or two.


    Wherever you go in life, ride there if at all possible.

          We have been doing day rides around the Florida panhandle area for a few hours in the last few months. Some buds and I have reservervations for a couple nights at Mt Cheaha State Park in mid May. That is about an hour and a half ride from Barbers Motorsports Museum in the Birmingham AL area. Anyone who is interested in the history of everything motorcycle from the very beginning until present day should make a pilgrimage to Barbers. short video here = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RACp9V0LJtk We are thinking about going to Northern Arkansas to ride for a few days in the fall.

          Y’all should make the Eureka Springs run. I’m in Hamilton now, by the way, and still heading west.

                I got in one ride since my wreck last may, in December lol. it was a tease... now we have 3 feet of snow outside. More coming in the forecast. No end in sight, seems our winter decided to happen during spring. *sigh*

                Sometimes it's harder to challenge yourself, then to face the challenge itself.

                  We had a ride today, up through some snow. Follow the car wheel tracks and go real slow.

                  LOL we can't even get the bikes out of the barn. Not without a lot of shoveling. My PMS (Parked Motorcycle Syndrome) is going strong... lol

                  What a great video of the Barber Museum. Have a great day there. Should be well worth it.

                    I have a real hankering to make that Eureka Springs meet one of these times. Hmmmmmmm. We’ll see what happens.

                          Feeling it too. Can't wait to get back out and get some riding in. Since we got another foot and the bike is apart that wil be a bit.
                          Kyle, you will love the Ozarks. There isn't a bad direction to ride. Even the US highway in town is a winding road. I plan to be there Tuesday to Sunday again.

                            I finally got a ride in yesterday. The sun peeked out and my wife said, “let’s ride down to Big Slick’s”. So, we did. First ride in about a year for a variety of reasons. I almost forgot how much I love riding. More to come for sure.

                              Well, I got 300 miles and change in on the SV yesterday. I need to pull my forks on the Road Star because I have a bushing gone to shit in one tube. False economy to not change them when you are in there. Regardless, she will be up and at em by wildflower time anyway.

                                That is why I decided to go ahead and get the bushings and seals before going RaceTech springs and Emulators.

                              How did this thread get started in the Non-Motorcycle Topics forum?

                              Then again, i guess if you’re not riding, you’re Non-Motorcycling, right?

                                Well, I thought about putting it in rides, meets, and events, but it wasn’t any of those either! LOL. Yesterday counts as an event because I finally got some riding in.
