Well, I didn't ride in today. Doom on me, I know, but I am trying to keep the miles off my bike while it is for sale.

Funny thing is, *yesterday*, in my parking garage's designated m/c parking area, there were twice the usual number of bikes. Today, there is half the norm. Damn Texas rednecks must have thought yesterday was RTW Day.

Cool

I was so happy to ride to work today to participate in the (official?) "National Ride To Work Day". This is the first time I've used the bike to "commute" so it's kinda a big deal for me....hehehe. I definitely saw more bikes than usual this morning so I know there was some good support out there. Who else rode their bike to work today?

I rode
Then again I ride as often (almost everyday) that I can.

For all those that did ride to work today, thanks, because hopefully your presence will make it a little safer for all of us out there!

Rode in for work today.

83 when I got here and 103 when I leave. You have to love (hate) Texas.

Keep the shiney side up.

I know what you guys mean....I'm keeping an eye on the weather down here in South Florida too. We tend to get those afternoon thunderstorms this time of year, so it's either swap vehicles at lunch time or leave early, if the weather starts to deteriorate. Stay dry!

I rode as usual. I ride whenever I can. Lately I have been driving the car to take my daughter to camp, what a drag. Today she suited up and off we went.

Cool

I rode today too, but then again i ride every day!! But some lady cut me off on the way to work.... didn't even bother to check and see if I was there in the lane next to her, uggghhh. The way drivers have been lately I think I am going to make some shirts that read "Hello I ride a motorcycle please cut me off"!

I'm sorry to go off topic but cagers need to be more aware, I dont know about the rest of yous guys but here in HOT Az I think the majority of people recieved their license from a cracker jack box. I wish there were more days like this for all of us to unite and ride!!
