I haven't yet, but will hopefully squeeze on in tomorrow. I'm off and AZChick is off too! I have no excuse, the weather has been terrific here.

I've been riding every weekend, and at least one or two days to work. The weather has been cold, but never below 30ish. The weeknds have been in the high 30s to low 40s, so I'm good for 70 to 100 miles a day.

There are a lot of group rides scheduled here this year, and it seems like everyone is going to compete to see who can handle the conditions. The past few days temps dipped into the teens, but it's supposed to be in the high 50s for the weekend, and Sunday is our annual Chili Billy run. About an 80mile ride to get free Chili, made by none other than Billy of course.

Did you get a new bike Saki?

Hubby and I took a short ride up to a local biker-friendly restaurant to get lunch on New Years Day. It was 50 with a "feels like" 45. He sold his bike and I really didn't want to ride the 250 so we went 2-up on my 650. Even at 50 I needed a scarf. I should've made hubby wear one too, he was cold. We are supposed to have some warmer weather this week, so Dave, don't put away your riding gear yet.

I'm waiting to get over being sick so I don't rebound. My ears are still plugged and hurting.

We've had snow here in MI since new years, but the rain has been melting it off the streets and it's suppose to be 44 and cloudy on Wednesday ;) My Ninjette should be fat black by then too ;)

EDIT: Was just out moving the vehicles around with my dad, so I took my bike out in the fog for a few (haven't let it warm up in almost a week :) Made my day :)

p.s. 'view new posts' > me... I didn't realize this was the 'Ladies Only' section, my bad, haha

He is looking at an Aprilia Tuono or KTM SuperDuke. He likes the Ninja 10R but the low clip-on handles are too low and hurt his hands and wrists. He needs something more upright. I think if he could put a handlebar on the 10R, he would consider it. But the other problem is insurance. The Euro bikes are much cheaper to insure.

What model was the Aprilia that he just sold?

If he wants to try it, I have an extra handlebar from a 650. I was going to try them on my VX800 before it got wrecked.

He had an '01 Aprilia Falco. He considered the 10R w/handlebar for a few minutes but then I don't think he wanted to bother with it, especially since the insurance on the Kawasaki is so much more.
