I know what you mean! I had a nice weather window last weekend. Was really awesome to get out and hit my favorite lonley canyon road. That's my kind of attitude adjustment!

It's been clear and 75 here this week (great riding weather), and will be close to 80 next Monday.
So it appears that Spring is finally here in Florida.

No, Florida only has two seasons. Summer and Tourist.
The best times of the year to ride is when the geezers clog up the road in formation doing 15-20 under the speed limit.
Then when the heat drives them back up north, it's now summer where it's hot a hell.

Great to hear !!!!

I am in the middle of James & Dee, in Hot Springs VA. I have been wanting to ride 33 for a while but have been sick alot ( AML) and didn't get far from home this summer. I should be able to ride by late spring. I am in Richmond having a bone marrow transplant and doing well so far.I am 19 days out from the transplant. Look forward to meeting you 2 and ridding some this summer !!! There is another gentleman on here from dearfield ( close to monterey VA) that has a 51 aand rides a good bit. CBXJOHN I think. Take care and ride safe and take one tight for me!! James Hoover

The sand the State laid down for the glacier Indiana was in January has not washed off the roads enough yet but it has been very warm. Almost all of the ice is gone, just in time for snow next week...

I usually wait for a few really good rain storms to clean up the roads....the intersection are sand mounds right now.

Here in Kansas the sand was terrible however ............ I got the ol girl out and put about 50 miles on her. The only problem was could not really get on the throttle due to all the sand......... Like madbuyer we are expecting snow next week
