Great Day for a ride. 72 degrees, little wind, a lot of flowering trees in full bloom. Looped out around the lake 60 miles, must have seen 45 or 50 other riders. Little early for this part of Oklahoma. Time will tell. Normally winter is about over in the middle of march, Just a few cold fronts in and out quickly for the next 2 or 3 weeks. But way too windy for a few coming weeks here Time to start planting cold weather crops here. What about your part of the country.

When I get back in Your Country I'll be a bit colder at night and a lot warmer by day.

Actually I might be a lot warmer at night as well but that's TMI.

"Great Day for a ride. 72 degrees, little wind, a lot of flowering trees in full bloom." That sounds really lovely! We are in the 20's now, pretty cold! Tried on my new full face helmet twice, but it's too cold to open the garage door to put it in MP3 pet carrier...just can't wait to ride again! 8) You can ride more for us-the folks in Northern ice holes!

Sunshine and almost 60 today, most welcome here in Portland. Today was actually the first time Loretta has been on the road since October, having been forced into storage due to a recent relocation (although she has nice new digs). After months on the battery tender she started right up and ran perfectly. The ride was most welcome as well!

Interestingly I saw another 500 on the road today, unexpectedly. It was with a pair of other bikes (not sure what) waiting for a left turn signal to head towards Carver at the 212/224 intersection, and I went through heading west. The light changed so fast I couldn't even turn to acknowledge, but it was a nice bonus on the ride.

Supposed to be back to cold and rain, and perhaps *snow* as well by Wednesday! Loretta is back in her jammies, plugged in and waiting for sunny days again. Me too (waiting, not jammies).
