Flat tire yesterday aborted my 1st 2019 attempt.
Today, no rain and a great ride with the plugged tire, 50 degrees so NO faulty Gerbing gloves needed.

Nice greeting at the coffee shop from the proprietor & the 6 AM Loafers , "Hey, Happy New Year Scooter Man!" I replied warmly, "Get a job?"
I whispered to Dino to take this $ for their coffee tomorrow.

Sun not up yet, so...

Scoot got a wash, blow dry and spent 1.5 hrs applying ACF-50 again. Until I find some working heat gloves, might be awhile after looking at sunrise temps for the next 2 weeks.
