Today here in Litchfield county, CT, I got in a ride it's 58 degrees, had to dress up for the ride. 50 Miles, unusual weather for February. Keep the warm weather coming.

You don't really want this do you? We can't live without water, snow that fill our lakes and aquafers are a necessity

BTW I forgot to mention this would have been day 34 on the ski slopes if it hadn't rained all day and flash frozen over night after a week of warm temperatures. A fall would be like coming off a bike at 80kph considering how far one would slide. ????

Glad you had a good ride Jon - We just got several inches of snow yesterday, and several days more of the same predicted for us here in the northwest. Looking forward to getting the scoot out for a run - soon as it warms up! .

Finally, I was able to get the s/m out for a ride. Added a little air to the tires and rolled it off the lift. Started right up. Rode approx. 50 miles to use up some of the old gas in the tank.

It wasn't a nice day, 60's and gusty winds, but it was sunny with no rain or snow. A good ride.

Winter is just too long to leave a bike sitting.

I assume it ran good and the ride was uneventful? Wish I had time for that right now, too much going here at the moment.
