Getting ready to hop on the bike and head to work. Also, planning and loading up for our coming Glamis trip.

It snowed here last week but the last few days it's been warm enough in the morning to ride to work. This state has the craziest weather.

It is March so what do you expect? Thing is we have not had months of overcast day in & day out for it has been cloudy & some times sunny though still cold---meaning below freezing temp & sometimes a few degrees above said freezing temp in the warmer part of some better days & times of the day.

Yes my bikes are still sitting in the garage with winter storage & none had updated LP stickers or compulsory insurance & I am enjoying my cage. Not the sort of things a m/c should be saying, but that is this so called Spring of '06.

Hi All-

Just watch out for the shaded areas when you do go out to ride this month. It can be "balmy" in the sunshine but still be hovering near freezing in the deep shadows. I've heard how black ice in those areas have surprised a few unfortunate riders during early springtime.

Ice? On the road? Did someone spill some? How did it get there? And how do you keep it from melting?
