Default Seen some riders today !!

There is still 3 feet of snow on the ground but I did see some riders today three Harleys and one Yamaha.
Is anyone else in Canada riding yet?
I will wait until the snow is gone as I cannot justify riding through the melt water on the roads and getting the Jackpot covered in salt.

Ya Miles I saw a bunch out today. Lots riding around in the city and a few on some on the TWP and RRoads even. A bit too slick out there for me yet. I pick up my scoot on the 15th so I hope it melts fast!

I've seen about ten guys so far this year up here in Ft McMurray. Pretty early for this guy, lots of sand on the road still. Our snow is melting fast, wont be long.

I was in Ft. McMurray yesterday and seen a guy riding and his bike was covered in mud from the snow melt. He was riding down Thickwood Blv
Imagin the amount of salt mixed in with the mud.

Ya I have seen a lot out that are all covered in road grime. I am scheduled to pick mine up next week....the roads out there are good as of today but I wont be riding it much farther than home to my garage. Most of the streets are dry but the few "melt rivers" crossing the roads are what worry me. I will wait a bit longer!

I've been riding since april 1. Great riding weather. Guess Winnipeg winters aren't that bad!- no snow left, really.

I was in Ft. McMurray again today and there was no snow left and the roads are dry.
Not bad for being 500 Kms north of here and we still have lots of snow on the ground melting.

I was out spending money today....the sooner I get the bike and start riding the sooner I won't be bored and out spending money! The chrome accesories are calling my name....I will post uprades in my signature when I am done!
I was out in your neck of the woods today at TJ and the Bear. I got a new jacket from them. Great people and service for those looking for clothing etc.
