What a day to ride!!

I hope everyone in the Northeast -- or anywhere else today where the weather was gorgeous -- got out to ride! It's a "bluebird" day here, and BearBait and I took a favorite 85-mile loop through the mountains.

The leaves are starting to change. That poignant fact probably added to our appreciation.

It was one of those exquisite rides, the memory of which you want to tuck away in the back of your head, to be brought out and contemplated on a crummy January day.

He's enjoying it a lot, Dennis. Still learning, because ... well, it's not a motorcycle, or a car, or a truck. New thing.

But it's not an exaggeration to say that the Spyder has saved his riding career.

I was stuck in a meeting all day yesterday. I did not ride on Sunday. But I did participate in a 50 mile ride through some towns in Massachusetts on Saturday and rode home in the rain. Yup, the bike is christened, I rode it in the rain. All is all a good weekend but I did look out the window often and thinking.... where would I be now, if I was not here. Where would the bike be taking me?

Hope all is well with everyone!

Keep your rubber on the road and your feet on the pegs and have a good ride.

Peace,
Bigbert

Awesome day for riding! Saw tons of bikes out yesterday and was mad jealous. Unfortunately, I've been away from my shop for too long and needed to spend some quality time with my son and wrenches getting a couple of things knocked off the project list. Next weekend looks to be pretty sweet weather also and I definitely plan to partake of some riding opportunities. Bike hasn't been out more than twice this season, for a whole bunch of reasons.

Glad to see everyone (except Pete) is doing OK. Ride Safe Guys and Gals

Sunday was a great day for a quick ( lazily) day on 2 wheels sunny , 74į, slight breeze. Somewhere yesterday I lost a few hours. If anyone finds them, please return so I can use them to do some(more) riding this weekend.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.
