Finally! It's Warm Enough!

I did not get out to ride today--too many things going on!  I will, however, get the chance to ride down to the Mountain Shadow Riders' March chapter meeting.  It's all things motorcycle and a great opportunity to just chit-chat and catch up with my friends.

The Mountain Shadow Riders is the largest Women on Wheels(R) chapter in Colorado.  At present count, there are close to 100 members, support and child members.  Our rides are as varied as our personalities--big cruisers, little cruisers, sport bikes and even a couple of scooters!!  What we do have in common is fellowship and the want to share our experiences and have fun in the process!!

In the meantime, I should head out to the garage and do some spring checking--oil, battery, tire pressure, etc.  I know the motorcycle will start because I rode it last week (yay!) and tires and fuel are okay. 

When riding, please be on the lookout for sand or "winter" debris on the roads.  Considering the contact area on a motorcycle tire to the ground is about the size of a playing card--one would want as much rubber on the road.  It's still pretty sandy and gravelly out there.

Most of us have not had the opportunity to do much riding (kudos to those who can) during the winter season, so beware of your skills.  Like anything else, it might get a little rusty for lack of use.  Thank goodness it doesn't take long to come up to speed!!!

Those are my pointers for the day (since I didn't really have a story).

Keep the shiny side up!!
