I think I mentioned this before. On my old CB750F, I took a 90 mile ride in wind chill less than freezing. I got home and my man orbs were the size of a walnut and black. Had the shower set to full cold and the water still burnt my skin. Big fookin' deal, I know. It was ancient history! Young and dumb.

WAAAAH! Boohoo, I'm in Florida. 68 is sooooo cold.


I was elated when it got up to 68. Time to break out the leather instead of the warm and toasty waterproof Belstaf!

I've been caught in downpours before, sucks. I can't imagine driving 120 miles through it though. Why did you do that?

I rode to Cedar Falls, IA to visit a friend Thursday night. Wasn't wise enough to look at the forecast (50% chance of rain Friday) and caught the short end of the stick on the ride back to Ames. Luckily it was just a drizzle a lot of the way and my parents live halfway in between, made for a good stop to regain feeling in my hands and rid their fridge of leftovers.

7 years out, won't ever take anything with me when I leave, but with as many leftovers as they throw away I'd like to think I'm actually doing them a favor. And them me.

Salt sucks under tires! That crap is a billion times worse than gravel, IMO.

I rode over a 1000 miles from the first of the year till the end of April up here in the land of Beer, Cheese and the Frozen Tundra. I rode almost every day the roads were dry. Got myself a Widder Vest, Dual Star grips and a Foggy breath guard, and haven't looked back.
