Great Weather, Time to Ride!

Got out on 2 wheels for a few minutes today...first time since November. Today is my wife's birthday so I got her bike out of winter storage mode, washed it, lubed the chain, activated the insurance, and put her birthday presents (saddlebags and tank bag) on. Of course then I had to take it for a quick spin around the block...just to make sure it's OK for her to ride.

My bike is in pieces...forks are at Nicholson's getting serviced, wheels are off waiting to have the new tires put on (tonight I got the new rear brake disk installed...the old one was warped...all the bolts were frozen and needed to be drilled out...what a pain in the kiester!), old chain is cut off, new chain waiting to go on once the new front sprocket (the old one was pretty sad looking) arrives. Cleaned all the impacted dirt and dust off the brake calipers. Should have it all back together by Sunday, I hope! It's shaping up to be a sweet spring.
