Sunday was a rare riding day for me...I think this is the first time I have cranked my bike in several weeks. Yikes! Winter is indeed here *sob*...
One of my girlfriends gives me a call and says she's headed out to Canon City...did I want to go?
I have two problems:
1. I blew the fuse on my heated hand grips so I had to get down in the fuse box. On the Fatboy, it is under the seat and the passenger strap thingy is attached to my saddlebag. In other words, I had to take the saddlebag off. I did, no problems...ten minutes later, my grips are back heated.
2. I attempted to blow my knee out skiing Saturday. That's attempted. I'm alright, my knee is just sprained. Can I manage hopping on and off the bike with a owie leg? I wrapped it up good and tested...yes..I can do this.
I just have to remember to put the left foot down first--which is what I do anyway.
The temps for the day are the low 50's so I bundled up. Yes, I look like the Michelin Man in black. Not only that, I have a peg leg too!
I met up with my girlfriend and no, we ended up not going to Canon City--I'm thinking it was going to be too cold as flashbacks to my last trip up there resulted in a frozen Wahine. Not my idea of fun.
Instead, we headed up to Manitou. Manitou is a really cool artsy town that has a lot of shops to wander in and out of. Whooohoooo!!! Motorcycling, eating and shopping!! This girl is in heaven.
Around 3:30 we started to lose daylight and more importantly--heat. The roads were fairly clear, but there were some wet spots on the road and I didn't want to get caught when the water spots turned to ice. After all, I crashed Saturday on my skis and remembered it was not a pleasant experience.
My riding is about done for the year. I have my little boy this year for Christmas and New Year's so those weekends will be spent with him.
Well, no motorcycling adventures...but we are planning on riding those pesky skis again after Christmas!!
