I rode out about 11am there was just a light breeze and in the upper 70's. Stayed on the Farm to Marked roads and traffic was very light. Riding through the cotton fields. No one has stated stripping their cotton yet. I didn't even see any cotton defoliated ether. I hope it's nice enough Christmas day and New Years to ride. We haven't did a New Years day ride in several years. A group of us ride a hour or two then head to the Cantina to eat. I fix a big pot of black eyed peas with hot Italian sausage cooked in it. It's damn good after a chilly ride and everyone likes it. I hope the weather cooperates this year.
