Iowa week-end fun...

Well, cabin fever has been cured for a while. Last week-end we had some good temps and the roads were dry/clean enough. At least that's what we convinced ourselves of So, the wife and I headed out...

Saturday's ride

Sunday's ride

And some pics (yeah, I know, I know, this ain't Deals gap or SoCAl...)...








I know; that Blast ain't the purdiest - but she enjoys riding it, and she is more comfortable on it than she was on her 650GS...


And this is when you ask her to take a picture of you on your pride and joy...


P.S.: for the LEOs checking out the links above - the "max speed" numbers are obviously erroneous readings; I was, after all, riding along with a Buell Blast

Warm weather riding is for wimps

Nice pictures. Never seen a Harley rider out in temps below 65 degrees before!

LOL... Yeah, or wearing Gerbings and ATGATT (temps were 35-42)...

She does not like to be associated with your typical Harley rider either

This weekend will feel like Spring with temps in the upper 50's today.
It's been a long winter!
The GT looks like she's ready to run.

Yeah, went for a (shorter) ride Saturday; had to lose the Gerbings around noon... Plan on going Sunday morning as well; to beat the wind and snow this afternoon.
