What winter?

Mid 40's in Central Mass past two days....I had to take the bike out of storage yesterday and ride to a few meetings for work. Steep icy driveway coming home last night and leaving early this AM was not fun. Otherwise, started up first try, runs great and roads are dry. This is somewhere on Rt. 21 in Thompson CT on my way back to office from first home visit this morning 😎😎

I have an '08 C50.
Everyone makes me ride at the back because of my Morton Violators.

Interested in a replacement gas tank, in black, but I'm cheap

I'm going out this Saturday (tomorrow) also. It is going to be 66 here in St. Louis MO. Get a couple of hours in, in the middle of the day and then put her back up.

I got to ride some yesterday and rode this morning. I was careful this morning as there was just enough water on the road to create some possible slick spots and of course, watching for the sand that tends to collect in corners was important. Hopefully, I will get to ride some tomorrow but with company coming in, it is not likely.

I wont ride under 70 degrees and at 70 I feel like I need a coat

I was wondering why the frisbee was getting bigger........then it hit me!

I'm addicted to Placeboes!!!

I am afraid to sky dive but I am really good at zooming in real fast on Google maps

Hey Paraquat, do you want to meet up? I have a few free hours in the afternoon in between family stuff. I could be at the Bean around 2:00 pm.

We're riding tomorrow. Breakfast and lunch + several hundred miles. Not bad for a group of NW Ohio and SE Michigan FJR owners in January.

That's great PhiJet, have a great time! None of this would be an issue if we were in the ND SD area...they've been buried!
