Superbowl and Motorcycling

What happened to January? Somehow managed to fly by even with ZERO ride time!! Groundhog Day (and Phil did not see his shadow) and the Superbowl.

Yay for the Colts and the wonderful time I had watching the game. It wasn't the Saints, but there is always next year, right?

Somewhere along the line, I did squeeze a motorcycle ride in. Unfortunately, it was not my motorcycle(s) nor was I the rider. Yes, I was on the back!

Yesterday I did get a chance to get out and ride on the back of one of my friend's bike. It was nice to be out--even with borrowed riding gear, high-heeled boots, and no ear protection. It was a very short scoot--just down the road a bit. It was, honestly, still too cold. I had the offer to ride my friend's bike on my own, but with too many potholes, no riding gear and too much sand down, I wasn't going to risk a potential drop. One thing to drop my own bike--quite another to do that with someone elses.......

As of yesterday, I still have much ice on my circle. Today, with high temp of 57, it will melt, however, there is snow forecasted this upcoming weekend. Will it ever end?????

It will, unfortunately, not soon enough! I was looking forward to riding down to the MSR Chapter meeting, but it looks like it won't happen at this point. Well, I'm going to say that I don't plan on riding, and if the weather is clear, I'll get a "happy". Better than anticipating the ride and then being disappointed, right?? LOL...

I know someone out there is riding...please ride a few miles for me, willya??

Keep The Shiny Side Up!

Hey Christine,

I will definitely ride a few miles for ya - you must be really itching to get back on the road!!

They usually replay the Superbowl over here but for some reason it wasn't on - oh well.

Keep warm.

Unsupported and I got out for a ride to Chapel Hills Mall two Sundays ago for an errand and again this last Sunday for ice cream. We got out again today for a drive to Rocky Mtn, for a new front tire for my Star. We managed to rack up about 50 miles, yippeee!!!

See you Saturday,
Betty :)

Yuk, but I know how you feel.

My wife and I rode on New years day... it never got over 52 here in Austin, tx. But it was a couple hundred miles and I have made a point to ride each NYD the past 9 years.. why? because I can.

I rode in to work on Monday this week. it was 39 when I left the house. ok.. no ice or snow.. but STILL THAT WAS COLD... it was in the 50's on the way home.

I am itching for warm weather.. bike nights, saturday, sunday rides..

I just love the spring. No better time to ride.

I will be holding onto you hope for you! Riding, is there anything better?
