I'm TOTALLY riding to work today!

Finally! I had her out for about 45 minutes on Saturday (cloudy, clammy, and 35*) but today it's supposed to be sunny and tolerable. It's about **** time, I can tell you that!

:biggrin:

Once I get the oil changed I will be out there. Hopefully, that will allow for most of the sand and salt to be washed off the road.

Kick *** ride to work. That Rogue ran great. It's still really hard not to speed.

I was wearing windproof snowmobile gloves so my hands were nice and toasty. Just my face got cold (half helmet).

Hitting those days this month here too, except I don't have chaps, so I look for 40+ in the morning. LOL Such a great feeling to get on the road for more than just a few minutes of "addiction" feeding. It's now the time of year I can become a V-twin JUNKIE again!!! :mrgreen:

I think one of the trafic cams got a picture of you!

..wow, check out that expression- looks like he just saw Hillary Clinton in a bikini. And that half helmet is about to fall off, leaving nothing to protect his melon.:shock:

What do you ride? Where in the area are you located? Perhaps I've seen you rollin around!

I made it yesterday and today. Things were frozen up and frost was on the road this morning, but judicious throttle control and careful cornering got me to work in one piece. Looks like tomorrow is going to be the last "ride to work" day for a while.

**** ND weather.

It was about 32 degrees when I left the house at 5:00 this morning, supposed to hit 72 this afternoon. The problem is I have to wear the winter gear for the ride in, then I have to carry it all home because it is too warm to put it back on. I really didn't do much real cold weather riding this year - we had so much snow and crap that riding was unsafe in any temperature, so I had to leave the bike home. I'm usually good to about 20 degrees, and I was really looking forward to finding out if I could handle colder weather now that I have my PolarHands handlebar mitts. Alas, I'll have to find out next year.

It was 35 this morning, but there was a little ice. I had a nice pucker moment, but made it fine. It looks like today is the last day I'll be able to ride for at least a week, so I decided to chance it. Should be a high of 45-50 today.

We are going to be an unusual high of 70F today. I hope I can get out this afternoon.

I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't hit 70 until May. Ugh. I really need to move, but the funds aren't there (or jobs).
