51 chilly and damp this am, had to drive the truck since the clutch cable on the 9er is unraveling and I'm waiting on a delivery from Ron Ayers so I can go back to riding to work.

Contrary to popular theory there are some decent roads around here, you gotta get out in the sticks though which I regularly do. I've rode the blue ridge mountains and I rode some real nice country roads in Tx and everywhere in between Fl and Tx, theres some nice rides in AL. So I know the roads here mostly suck but if you're determined and adventerous you can find some nice rides around here. Think I may just go do that!

78 now BTW

I'd say Alabama and Texas definitely qualify as getting to the sticks from Florida.

What is this rain you speak of? I'm afraid if my dog farts the property will catch fire.

I have the same feeling in my neck of the woods. Haven't had rain in three months. Or at least nothing to talk about .03 of an inch.

The past couple mornings have been 50 degrees and foggy. Sunny and mid 70s on the ride home last night, only supposed to get to 70 today. I'm enjoying it while it lasts.

We had that weather a while back, then the rains came and 'm cutting the grass 2 to 3 times every week, almost worse than spring.

The last few years it seems we don't have spring and fall. Straight from winter to summer then back to winter, which is approaching.

If you are really strict about it, its seems that the last decade or so has been about 9 months worth of cool/winter conditions, so very short summers that tend to arrive late.

RE:

Such talk is deemed Politically in correct on the BMW sites.
The big boys all have their steeds prepped and covered, with oh so much trickle charge, a certain amount of air pressure, All the open screw holes taped over. Fresh oil and all filters. Some of us rednecks said all we did was fresh gas and a heavy jacket and keep on riding. Man was there a flame war, and tempers rose, It made my day. Several of us are gonna report our nice winter rides all thru the cold weather.

We have the easiest and laid back bunch of guys that could be possible here on Wrist Twisters.
It is the # ONE Bike Site!

I'm thinking of taking my wife up 66 through the forest for a scenic drive this weekend. The weather is supposed to be perfect for the bike, but we'll probably be in the truck.
