Un-believable weather

Drove thru Sturgis past the Full Throttle Saloon this last Sunday (went back to SD for my pop's 90th B-day party) and the temp was 62 degrees.........almost couldn't believe it. T-shirt weather there in early December. I almost was wondering why I hadn't ridden the bike.




Lead, or follow, but just stay out of my way.
Heaven is a warm, cozy place to sleep.

While it may be impossible to please everyone, pissing them off is certainly within my reach.

Sunday the wife and I went for a little five county run before lunch. All we needed was jeans and a sweat shirt. I think things topped out about 75 degrees. Even in the deep south that's good for December.

I like global warming, I can ride year round and in a couple more years, Birmingham will be only 35 miles from the coast. Ride the bike to the Gulf for a day of boating and be home for supper.

Sweeeeeeet

Glad to hear that You northern folks have enjoyed a late-late Indian Summer.
Hope it sticks around for a few more days!

Sideways rain at home. I'll be riding to Sturgis this August. While I am stuck here now, I appreciate your post. When I look out the window at the pouring rain and snow, my mind is always thinking about the ride to SD this summer.

and the great Missoula flood ride in June.

I hope there is no snow in the passes on your way home.

I will second that, Missoula Flood ride and no snow on your way home. Travel safe.
And I agree sideways rain sucks!!!
