Rode To Work Today

Well not in the morning as it is still cold as hell. At lunch it was in the 50's and warm, so I took advantage. Anyone else sneaking in winter rides. Those of us that have snow and cold weather that is. Not you bastards that think its cold out when the thermo "dips" down to 75....


Needed to get the bike down to the shop anyway, going to cut out the fairings for the frame sliders. Been sneaking rides without them, or front turn signals. Only thing that sucks is there is sand and loose gravel on the roads. So just cruising around for now.

You need to take it to shop to cut holes in your fairings?

I hope you don't mean dealers.

No, I work at a dealer/repair shop. Much better tool selection than I got at home.

I ride everyday. Even when its 20 outside. Tuesday I rode to Fayetteville from Raleigh and back again. Thats about 80-90 miles away from where I live one way. It was a nice day going there, but at night, it got down to 30 and I was crusing at 95mph. Yeah. I was cold after that. Took a nice 15min hot shower to just defrost and another 15mins to get me warm. And that was with 2 pairs of paints, 2 t-shirts, 2 sweeters, all under my full leathers!

I ride to work regardless of rain, snow, or 120 degree heat. Granted, of course, that I haven't had the pleasure of experiencing all the above mentioned for the whole two weeks that I've owned my bike. The more I ride it, the more I love it. I mean my motorcycle (for all you sick minded bastards! ). SoCal isn't all that bad
