I decided to ride my wing to work tonight:action:Hey its 40* when I left, but I foregot about my commute along the ohio river:Dwasn't to bad. The morning should be entertaining with the wind chill of 24* or so. Hey Thats what I bought the wing for is to ride isn't it :cool:My wing is my perfect stress reducer, that is the reason I bought it and fell in love with it:action:

Tomorrow It gets tore down for the final time in prep for the riding season, Just got my new E3's in (190.98 for front and back:)) so I will be doing the wheel bearing and brakes and replacing the valve stems and working on the muffler some more and the regular stuff. Due to my swing shift work schedule it will take me about 1 1/2 -2 weeks to get er done :)

Well Ride Safe,

Ray:action:

Nice deal. Was it local or internet? I am pricing E3's also and best deal I can get is from someone I know at a cycle shop discounting them for me ( $225.40 for the pair + tax and time to go pick them up). Online, best I could find was $260.19 shipped.

Hi Ray,

Glad you got to get a ride in. This winter has been somewhat problematic on a lot of folks being able to sneak in a ride.

Everyday here is a ride day, that is, if you have a bike to ride on :X

Some days are just nicer than others. ;)

My wife thinks I'm a little off myself, rode into work this morning at 29 degrees. But I'm looking at 56 by the time I head back home, that's what keeps me going.

Nothing like temps in the mid 20s to bring a ride to life! Way to go! Ride your heart out!

Don't worry if your wife sometimes thinks you're nuts......

It usually means-- at least sometimes -- that you're doing something right!

Rode in he other day at 46, that's cold for south Texas...... People think I'm nuts, the crotch rockets and harley boys wern't even out, had the road to myself.......... That big windsheild on the bike makes a difference. I'd ride when colder but my hands turn into popsicles......... It was 62 on the way in this morning and I got hot!!!!

I've been riding all winter here in Oklahoma City, we've had several days below 32 and I think my record is 18. The wing offers great protection from most of the wind and I will give this advice: Layers layers layers. The only heated gear I have is my gloves and they have been a life saver.

No wing deice needed. Took it out of the garage and then got stuck to it like glue. :D:D Of course, my hands were numb by the time I got to work, but the ride home wasn't as bad.



Oh yea, I also ordered the handlebar covers to keep my hands inside of from now on.



How's the song go...."Let's ride, ride, ride, get it on!"
