I've ridden a couple times already. Now the Spring rains are here to wash the crap and sand off of the roads.

Here in another week, Indy weather should be golden to go give her a good romp down South.

And that's just the way we like it!
Especially when you live where it never rains, and the temperature is always about 75F degrees. Like I do.
