There are years we get quite a bit of snow and ice here, but not every year. You may have a bad week in the winter that you can't ride. We use to do a New Years ride every year, but for about three years the weather has been bad on New years. So we all get together at my place and I cook up a big pot of black eyed peas with some kind of meat in them. We have a few beers and talk about any and everything. We always did this after the ride anyway. Maybe this weather will be nice this New Years and we can ride.
Rode to work yesterday and it was great!! Meet the wife after work and we grabbed a bite to eat.
Rode home after dark and I took a direct hit on the throat from very large bug I could not avoid. Dang that hurt!!
It is starting to cool down here. They are predicting upper 80's with one day in the lower 90's on the seven day forecast. The winds are 5 to 15 mph. This spring and summer we had a lot of very hot weather with high winds and sand storms. So this is welcomed weather and we got a inch and four tenths of a inch of rain this week. Maybe by November it will get cool enough where I don't have to mow the lawn until spring. I need to change the oil in my scooter and start checking it out real good for a run to our Southern Border in about three weeks, Viva Terlingua.
I had to work yesterday but didn't ride. I drove my 98 dodge 4x4 extended cab and did a full tune up and oil changes. Saturdays are slow and the boss doesn't care if i work on my own stuff on Saturdays. I don't want to be messing with vehicles in the winter.
North Florida has had Brutal Heat for the past 2 weeks, was only Riding Early Mornings .. But seems to be getting a bit better now only have that seasonal September Problem called Lovebugs .. Hopefully they don't last too long as the temps are getting good now compared to what we have had this Summer ..
I went riding yesterday and stopped and washed my scooter. I got into this neighbor hood I had never been in before. I thought I'd never find my way out. The roads went all over the place. Nearly all roads here go north and south or east and west. Numerically named east and west streets and alphabetically named north and south. Any way after numerous turns I found 98th street and headed out of town. Got home and a friend called and wanted to come over, I said sure. He's getting a divorce and just needed to talk and he did and I listened. Well that was my Sunday not wow wee but OK.
It was between 96F and 100F yesterday when I rode up to Nashville. I removed the JTD inserts in my forged bars a few weeks back which allows for more airflow to the motor and to me. It was a nice and cool 67F when I got home just after midnight. I think the hottest I rode in was 114F and the coldest was 17F. The Victory CCT does it all with style, performance and reliability.
I have a 49cc Yamaha scooter that we bought to take to the beach with us behind our motorhome. My almost 4 year old son and I cruise the neighborhood on it every now and then, we live way out in the country. He loves riding on that thing. Did some cleaning in the motorhome since we have vacation in about 5 more weeks to Disney World!! Suppose to start getting a break from the 90's towards the end of the week.
It's 70 degrees right now, raining off and own. Haven't got much rain here but a few miles in any direction they have had rain. The county fair started yesterday and it always rains it seems. I think Monday is the official start of fall. When this rainy spell is over there should be some good riding days.
Cold front blew in yesterday the low this morning was 44 degrees F.- 6.7 C. The high will be in the upper 60's today. This is good, cooler temperatures means the grass will grow less and want have to mow so much. Doing a ride down to Terlingua, Texas soon. the weather down there shows to be in the upper 90's when we get there then in the 70's for 2 days and the ride home will be in the 70's, high 40's to low 50's at the start with sunshine and clear skies. So it should be a nice ride in.
This coming week we have a couple of decent days to ride. Then it turns cold with rain and freezing rain. But, I do have some things to do out side I need to get done with the nicer weather. Things I should have got done a while back. I have been bad over the years of taken off riding instead of doing yard work etc. So maybe if I work real hard Monday I can get most of what I need to do and ride Tuesday. I could get started on it today but I have other things I normally do on Saturday and Sunday. Like visiting with friends and having a few beers, you know important things.?
