I am also patiently waiting for summer to come along. However with my current work schedule I will be on heavy travel during most if not all of the summer. I may have to just do with the spring and fall....not that its a bad thing, just that its not summer!!
Ah, stirrings deep inside, longing for open road and tar snakes. That first ride in the spring on dry asphalt, warm sun on your face. The smells, new growth in the bush and down in the ditches, watching for the gravel left from winter road maintenance.
Thanks CJ, still riding the Ferguson around the neighbourhood blowing snow.
Spring has sprung here in Texas. It was beautiful here, temps in the middle 80's and not a cloud in the sky on Saturday. I got the 1200 sidecar rig out and put 500 miles on it. I came home and started to put it up and the 1000 was crying I was neglecting it. So, another trip of 100 miles on the 1000 on the same day. The poor 1100 is still waiting for the parts to be painted.
I feel your pain, CJ. It only got into the 80's here this weekend with plenty of sunshine. In spite of the hardship, I managed to get in a 250 mile poker run for the Wounded Warriors on Saturday. I'm hoping it will warm up a little pretty soon.
I guess for those of us who live in Texas we pretty much enjoy riding year round. I know I ride mine almost every day during the winter. The only time I wont ride is if it is poring down rain before I leave for work and the only reason I don't ride then is because I don't feel like changing out of wet clothes after I get to work. (usually just change work boots)
The weather hear has been absolutely beaughtiful and it is to bad that I have to do the dirty four letter word all the time. I would love to make a run to the Twisted Sisters this weekend but I am not sure that my wife is up to it yet (She is still not doing all that great) besides I will probably have to work this weekend.
Don't worry my northern brothers it won't be long and you'll will be riding again soon.
