Been raining pretty hard around here this evening, then we're getting a bunch of wind, so I'm thinking Wednesday afternoon might be perfect to sneak out for my 25th consecutive month of riding in Michigan.

You've got something there. I may need a trial ride on my bike. See how the new wheels and suspension feel.

I got in a little ride this afternoon. My new (rebuilt) shock made a world of difference. Now to address the forks....

Where are you? I'm in Bloomfield Hills, my plan was to blast off from here at 1145 and have a quick lunch at Bullfrogs in Clarkston.

I am in Ferndale. I could make that. Probably have to head for home by 1:30 though.

A good reminder to buy a lottery ticket while I'm out.

What a nice ride we had, for mid February anyway!
Nice to meet you Keith!

Likewise! I know you froze your ass off, thanks for joining me.

I forgot to look at my air temp gauge on the outbound side, but on the way back, which was warmer, it was pretty much maxed out at 30 degrees. Pretty crazy on a sport bike at 75MPH on the highway!

I have a similar picture on my camera, but all of a sudden today the card doesnt want to go into the computer, I'm working on it.

You don't have to worry about Greg riding in the cold. I remember him breaking ice off his faceshield on the return trip from Grattan Raceway couple years back, in April.

I got out and did a few things on the bike yesterday. I went to the bank and ended up at top gun to do some shooting and also went to the harley dealer to see about the striped mounting hole I have in my fairing which hopefully I have a solution for and will post on later.

They have motorcycle specific parking and thought it was cool they have the kick stand pucks and some pieces of wood too hanging on the sign.
