Ride Today !!!

(Was'nt sure if I should put this in "Ride Tales" post area, as it was only a short cruise)
50 degrees here in Upstate NY today, put on 75? miles or so. Came home and washed her up for tomorrow. Supposed to be 55 !!. And Mr. Bush says there is no such thing as
"Global warming", bullshit, he's an idiot.

Glad you got out! Watch out for 'black-ice'. Hey, Bush wants your opinion....as long as it is 'responsible'. Good luck defining that one.

Talking My post...

Just noticed, my member criteria has been changed from "Senior Member" to "Enthusiast".
What the hell is an "Enthusiast" ??. Because I make too many posts, or, because I love my Red Rocket?. Maybe it's supposed to be "Enthusiass" .

92 miles last Sunday at 45 degrees. 118 miles today, with a bath for her at the station house and lunch at an Irish pub and 57 degrees in CHICAGO!!

Makes you feel sorry for those Southern riders. Who get no excitement out of a January ride.

55 degrees is great riding weather! Here too in Northern Arizona we are experiencing warm temps and bone dry conditions. Tomorrow the wife and I are riding down through Oak Creek Canyon to Sedona for lunch. It's about a 60 mile round trip from home with great twisty bits. Riding in January in these conditions is a bit strange, but we will take it!

Hey Mr. FlagGS.......Not sure if you go to Sedona a lot or not, but, is there still a bar there with a couple of pool tables, and a huge bear mounted standing behind a plate glass window??. I was there in the late? seventies. Stayed 2 weeks at a private residence, what a town!. Drank a whole bottle of Wild Turkey in that bar by myself (big guy).
Never left bed for two days, and, to this day get sick if I even smell that stuff. Jack Daniel's goes down like water.

Osprey, get a new digital camera or bump up the quality & flash. Your avatar is better quality than those attached pix. Thanks for sharing.

Cheers
