First ride of 2019................
 
Got in a ride today (upper 50's), did about 50 miles. Enough to warm up the bike and chill me off. :) Still have snow and ice in front of the shop doors but was very cautious and didn't have any problem. The only road hazard I ran across was two very large bull buffalo on the road in Wind Cave National Park. They were eying me as I crept by them. Slow and quiet.....

Slow and quiet, yes, don't upset them.:wayhappy:

I've been so busy, I actually just got my first ride in for the year. It was mid to high 60's here, so there were lots of bikes out. No buffalo though.

That's wonderful, Duffy! Jealous, here. :)

Still pretty cold there Chris? We've had a mild winter for SD. I don't think we've had a foot of snow combined so far. Supposed to get cold this next week though. Hang in there spring will come.............

The miserable cold has moved along, thankfully; it reached 50 degrees here today, hooray!

But my 600-foot-long driveway is still a slick of melting snow, refreezing ice, and mud. I couldn't get down it safely on the bike if I tried.

These days when it's sunny and above freezing just get the 'riding itch' going SO badly. <Sighhh>

Yet Spring will come, indeed. :)

Got some time on the bike today too. Had to watch out for sand on the road. Those buffalo can be surprisingly fast when they want to be.

I wont ride under 70 degrees and at 70 I wear a jacket

It hit the upper 40's yesterday without raining.... so I got out for about 30 minutes. We both needed some fresh air :)
