Default R U Ready For Winter Riding :)

This Saturday is expected to be 81 F. I have 2 new tires and rebuilt forks. If I get all my honeydoos done , I get to ride.

Some of you colder states folks are getting some warm stuff as well if you ain't jumped the gun and put your little bikes in the shed with it's blankey and trickle charge thingy.

I think it should be getting really cold here around Jan/Feb where we will see highs in the 50's and I'll have to really wrap up to protect my smooth skin and not get frost bite... that would be a terrible thing.

Cheerio!!!

Took a lunch ride yesterday with a buddy - the high was 50 and we got drizzle for most of the ride - once we were over half way there, so committed. Loved the ride - was warm and the shield kept the rain off of my face. Seems like you remember the rides that had "weather" issues more than the perfect weather rides.

Also - the saloon we went to had one of the best burgers I've ever had, we will be going back there for sure!

I guess the Western drought is over...we're drowning out here. Floods and slides all over the region.

Agreed, we have been getting storms every 5-7 days. Heavy rain here today & tomorrow. Then again late Saturday thru Sunday. Glad to see the wet weather

I replaced the rear with another dunflop cause the other one gave me almost 12K. I have a Michelin on the front. Man I love to ride! I can tell a difference in the handling taking a curve. Less resistance on this one. Seems to be a lower profile than the D417. Take some getting used to.

ignore the tag please...
