not fair

:nope: It's been cold and rain for 23 days here on the rock. So it's not fair that you got to ride and I'm still waiting for the weather.

Yeah, the rain has held off today... I got a later start so the wind got pretty ugly at times but I got about 60 miles in, Pittsburg to Clayton to Brentwood and home... 280 more miles till the new StreetGlide is broken in!

Hell, upper 50s? Is there a question about riding in that temp range? Jeez. Was 42 here in western NJ today. Me and the girl put on about 100 miles with a lunch and beer break in the afternoon. Was terriffic.:yes:

Well I really had to force myself to ride today. 80 degrees had to wear a sleeveless t-shirt. It was tough but I did.

Sorry about sounding like a smart A$$ but that's the benefit of living in florida...=devil=

Yeah, but y'all got hurricanes and a bunch of senior citizens peeking over the dash boards of their Lincolns and Caddies. Not to mention hot and humid summer. I was stationed in the south for a number of years and just can't hang with that humidity.

Here in central Illinois we had balmy weather also...high 40's. Quite a few bikes out and about. I rode about two hours, really enjoyed it. Chaps, lined leather jacket and decent gloves and you are good to go. When it drops below 40 then you start thinking how nice it would be to have heated grips, but high 40's...that is good riding weather!

perfect New Years (new Harley)

Could today have possibly been any better? Nope! After 6 mo. finally got my first Harley, a Cobalt Blue 06 FLSTNI. I picked it up this last fri. and have rode everyday since. Today temp hit 62 her in Asheville N.C., rode 100 miles. This bike is way better than I could ever have imagined. I will remember this 05 New Years as one of the best ever.

Lower 40's here in Va. Rode for about 45 mins., stopped for gas and realized my tags expired last month. Crap! Kinda slinked back home and put the bike away but, the grin will stay for a while.

Yeah, rub in all the riding LOL. I would ride, but with all the farming roads around here, I would spend more time cleaning than I did on a ride. I will be glad when Spring is here!

Rained like a sumbitch all day today. Managed to suck down a cigar and a six-pack while enjoying the last day of regular season NFL.
Vacation is over - back to work tomorrow! :(

Chilly (upper 50's) and WINDY but dry. We're in between storms up here in Northern California, but I got to squeeze in about 85 miles of Livermore Valley backroads this morning. It was most righteous! What a fine way to bring in the new year! Cheers, everybody!:thumbsup:
That wind was the only thing that held me back. I was going to buzz thru Sunol and Pleasanton for an lil loop but didn't want to be blown around that much.

Got in about 150 miles today. San Diego was a little cold, but beautiful. Hit some roads I have never been on and loved every minute of it.

It doesn't get better than this.

A good way to start the new year.
