My Dad and I just had this conversation on the way to the IMS. Some guys riding down the interstate fell for it too.

I don't care if it's a ruse. Half our snow is gone which means it will take less time for it to go when it gets warm for good. Hell if the roads were clean I would have had the bike out. It was 43 Sunday. Maybe I can finally get my shock mounted.

Anything over 40 is great for me! I've been riding for the last 2 days and counting! Suppose to rain tomorrow but then sunny again after that.... feels good to be on 2 wheels again!

I'm riding to work Friday. It will be in the 30's on the way in but should hit 60 in the afternoon. I got out for about 2 hours before the Super bowl and it only made it into the high 40's that day.

Enough is enough time to ride.
