Default 70 degrees monday here

I am getting up early and riding all day..I need to get my fix in before the cold clamps down tight on us....Its like a drug for me...the highest ive been on it was when I was discharged from the Marine Corp. I will never forget the feeling of seeing camp pendleton disapear in my rear view mirror as I rode out the gate for the last time..That ride home from Californa to Oklahoma was a very eventful yet remeberful ride...wow...people that dont ride just dont understand..Its more than a motorcycle. Its spiritual to me..anyone else agree or am I just a wierdo..which is fine..hahaha

2013 black XCT.

I, for one, certainly agree as demonstrated in this video. I got chicken skin as I watched and listened. I never imagined "La Mer" would fit so perfectly as musical background for a ride video. Sit back and enjoy and have some Kleenex handy.

Default Same Here

OkieHoss, Wow, we both had the same temp numbers. You had a + 7 0 today, and we had - 0 7 last night. For some reason, I like your numbers better. Later-

I'm with ya Okie. I've done a lot of them, and there is not one drug on this planet that compares to riding. It gets to the point where my wife tells me to go ride because she can tell I need my fix. You're not weird at all.

My girlfriend knows when I'm suffering from PMS. Parked Motorcycle Syndrome. I'll be leaving in the morning and she'll ask me if I'll be home by dinner or if she should eat without me.

Nothing like a good day of riding.

Hey Okie,
Your info says you're in Green Country. I grew up on Grand lake, went to school in Grove. You anywhere near there?
