Default Finally...First ride of the year!

I usually wait until it rains a couple of times to take the bike out, but it has been a long, long winter and I couldn't take it anymore. Had a nice day in the upper 50's yesterday and got in a good 200 mile ride. Disregard that inferior Harley to the left

I too got the first spin of the season in yesterday. Took the XC since that was easiest to get out of storage and it's the most comfortable for the lady to ride. Nothing major, but enough to be satisfying. Roads were quite good (not much sand or water). Wish the 50's would get here for good though!

Krazy and Big Blue, it would be helpful to us if you had where you live in your profile. As far as we know, you might live in Arizona or Florida and won't ride until the thermometer reaches 80.
