    First Ride of 2010

    Took my bike to work today - oh how I've missed my bike!

    40 degrees on the way in and I was comfortable. High of 56 and partly sunny.
    Every day I wake up is a good day!

    I went through a tank of gas on the GS yesterday, and have about 100 miles on the DR for the year.

    With the snow cover gone, and most of the salt washed off the roads by last weeks rain, I'm figuring the season is offically open for me.

    I got darn near 100 miles yesterday. Sure felt good. I was a dumbazz though and did not ride into work today. Would have been prefect. Got the tire for my GSX today/yesterday as well. Now if I could just get the darn blinkers to work. Seemed to go out on my over winter.

    Check for evidence that mice might have chewed on the wires.

    Nah, no chewing, wish it was that easy. This is the bike that Yaroslav wrecked and all but one blinker were ripped off from the crash. I just have to track the wires down. I think my signal relay is shot as well. The mice don't like my garage anyway, far too cold. The house is much warmer.

    I got in about 30 Sunday, then rode to work yesterday (72 more). Didn't ride today out of laziness. I'm behind on sleep and there was some rain in the area. 35 degree rain.

    How old is your bike and how many miles you got on it Clint? 72 miles a day, 5 days a week, 4 weeks a month, that's 1,400 miles a month just for the daily grind. That doesn't take into account any weekend fun riding. Just curious...

    65* Wednesday had us ready to dig the bikes
    out of winter storage.
    31* Thursday made that feeling go away.
    Still no ride for me this year.
