The fun is over

57* today, 150 things I should be doing but f*ck it! Took off around 2pm and rode around for about 3 hours and 110 miles. I got to try out a new jacket and gloves. Put Dyna Beads in the tires and ripped of those wheel weights. The bike rides smooth as hell.

33* tonight and rain and ice. Back in the garage again for a while. Anyone else get out and ride today? I seen a few puttin around.

Didn't get to ride today. Cool and rain here is DFW Tx area. But did go to the Harley store and bought the pushrods, bearings, o-rings and gasket needed to do the cam upgrade.

23 degrees this morning in Las Vegas NV!

and I got out for a quick 100 miles anyway...

Little chilly, not bad once I got started. Felt like the Michelin Man with all those layers on....

Good ride!

Yeah I rode about 125mi and I bought a new gun. All in all a great day. But I ride even when it's cold and in the 20's so yesterday was a treat. Southern riders on general crack me up. Their bikes would sit six months if they had the northern temps.
