No.  24F, and at the corner they are still running their sprinkling, which sprays onto the road.  It was a sheet of pure, glare ice.  I never would have made it out!   :eek:

Looks like riding is officially done, here.  It's snowing and we'll have sigle digit highs by the weekend with negative single digit lows.

At least I got my gas tanks filled on Thanksgiving.

30s all weekend. Forecasted 41 on Monday. High 30s the rest of next week. The roads are clear of snow & ice already. Spring is here! Maybe I'll contribute to this thread soon. Going to the BMW dealer tomorrow to test ride a slightly used K1200S & check out the R-Nine-T & have my fiance try on helmets!

Today I learned the tenere doesn't read ambient temperature until it reaches 15, below that it just says "lo". Phone said it was 10 when I left this morning. I'm hoping the ride home will make it all worth it.

In related news, heated glove liners have been added to my must have list. Feels great to get out the road again. First commute of the year has been a great success to this point!

it was a pleasant ride up 294 to Chicago. Lots of stares and waves from cagers.

Supposed to be 45 on the way home...on the LONG way home  ;D

A couple shots from today's commute. If anyone is wondering if its worth suffering through the 10 degree ride in just to enjoy the 50 degree ride home... The answer is yes, yes it is...  10/10 Would do again. =p

Any damage? I was worried about the same thing as my driveway is also 6" of solid (now slushy) ice.

Many strange looks from cagers were given to me this morning as well.

44 deg. and sunny. It felt tropical compared to the winter we've been having. Roads were wet in places but not bad. No salt.

It was 65° yesterday and 40° today. Supposed to be 75° on Monday and Tuesday, but a chance for snow Wednesday.

This is from yesterday...

It's looking like a Speed Triple kind of day.


Could hit 60 today. The last time it hit 60 around here was November last year.

I thought about it for a second! But ultimately I didn't go. I was scared! Plus I thought 50 degrees fahrenheit was too chilly for the 1st ride on the Speedy especially w/ those brand new tyres.

Not sure when I put the Tiger away, but I cleaned it.  It is now dirty after 34.6 miles.  If the rear tire did not slide a few times while going through turns there would have been more miles.

Say it did not happen since there is no picture posted, but I know better and had the more important job of working a throttle.

Even though the temperature was 54 Monday the wind made it feel colder than you would think.

Rode to Fred's in Burlington for lunch then out to the kettles.

All i can say is Boundry rd. is all kinds of SUCK. It looks like they coverd the road with all the sand from lake michigan. And there was still ice patches to. I don't see the road being any fun till June.

Lunch.

I was very comfortable.

My core was toasty warm in my lined Cortech jacket and leather pants. It was just my hands that were cold. Temps were in the low 40s here.

I rode to Kay's Jewelers to get something for my Honey for Mother's day. nice short ride. couldn't ride long cause we have people coing over for gaming time. Plus, before the ride, I had to replace the front right Hub Assy in my Honey's minivan. It's been growling for months. just got the part a few weeks ago and finally got the chance to put it in. went way easier than expected.


good day so far.

The ride to work is now just 8 miles.  It doesn't seem worth it anymore. 


OTOH, today was wet leaving for breakfast with the local ADV crew.  45 miles to the meeting place, another 155 after that and 75 of that in the dirt!  My body is beat.  This off road stuff is coming back to me.

I did....I did!!!   :banana:  I did a quick 50 miles a couple weeks ago for my first ride of the year but finally got out for a good 230 mile ride today. Nice ride from Metamora over to Holy for the Rally at Battle Alley  (aka Harley fest) then out to Stockbridge for the end of All clubs day ride. A quick lunch at the wooden nickel then down to Seymour and Waterloo. Back up through Howell and Fenton back to home. Was finally getting my confidence back toward the end of the day. Pleasantly surprised how well my back and knees held up with the limited saddle time I have had this year. I need to get a couple more of these under my belt before my weeks road trip to the national next month.   :beerchug:

I rode yesterday.  I rode by a MC accident (going the other way) and I thought for sure the guy was dead as I briefly saw him laying on the side of the rode without a helmet but I was focused on the traffic ahead of me so I didn't rubber neck it.

I found a story on the website of the local paper.  Turns out the guy was not dead, just seriously injured.

I rode out to a meeting spot for a Annual Breakfast ride this morning (my first time). The people I was supposed to meet that were gonna join up a few miles ahead of said ride, never showed up. sooo, since I didn't know what time the Ride was going to go by, I wasted time sitting on the side of road for nothing. Said F it and rode back to RC to check out local Suzuki/Honda/KTM/Can Am dealer. Wife has been thinking she might want a Spyder instead of 2 wheels since she is so short. the only bike she is comfy on is a Sportster 883. She isn't too happy about that. soooo, she likes the idea of a Spyder. we'll see what happens in the coming months...  money just got tighter and the garage isn't big enough for a Spyder and the Hulk. may have to wait til 2015. sigh...

and this also happened...  so. dang.  close.

I rode this morning which is normal - weather has been great for a few weeks and I commute every day by bike and ride a lot and that's fine but uninteresting.


What's cool is that my wife rode with me this morning, in the first real ride, non-putt-around-the-parking-lot-lesson she's ever had, on her own '81 CM400.  We rode back from my friend's shop, where the bike's been kept as we get it running after 29(!) years of sitting in garages, to our place.

She did awesomely.

She really is.  It's very nice to see her enjoying it.  She's never owned a vehicle of any kind (unless you count bicycles, I guess) before.  It's really cool to see her developing this skill.  It really takes me back to my first bike and learning to ride.

Wet and foggy this morning, but sunny and 70ish for lunch - took a ride to my old neighborhood sandwich shop, Panes, half a block from an old apartment I rented with a buddy of mine during law school. Hadn't been there in over 15 years. Same woman behind the counter, didn't remember me (only lived there for a year), but she sat with me for a minute while I was waiting for my sandwich. 

I could have added a Bob Milke type report, but suffice it to say, yes I rode today. Sandwich (a Super Panes).

Someone wants to look at the Sprint tonight, so I'm stopping to see him on the way home from work.

The only thing better than that is if you could skip the riding to work part. Being at work with the bike packed is torture.

This mornings most important decision: Take the more fun northern route to the office or the more boring route but with a stop for a treat. The treat being some sort of rhubarb coffecake pastry and a cup of Sumatra. I opted for the treat.
The ride home will be the circuitous, longer mileage, more fun, and sometimes quicker, southern alternative route.

Nothing thank god.  I had some brake pressure but i had to drop the trany into 1st and stand on the emergency drake. Good thing i decided to slow down before i got off. I usually hit that ramp at about 65. 75 on the bike.

Drove the car in the morning yesterday, then came home and got the Daytona at lunch.  Took it back to work and prepping it for consignment.  It's going away because I can't ride it any more.  Carpal tunnel in both wrists has killed my desire to ride at the moment.  8 miles from home to work and the pain is unmanageable.  Time to set up an appointment with the doc. 


First time the Daytona's moved under its own power in a month.   :baa:

No wonder you've been so quiet lately.

Back in 94 i was working a desk job and starting to get Carpal tunnel to from the computer work. When i got a different job it went away and have never had a problem since.

I hope this doesn't mean a retirement from motorcycling. A more uprite riding position would be better for the wrist.

Good luck Tom and congratulations on your daughters  wedding.

Numbness in the hands, swollen feeling fingers and lack of fine motor control.  I'm dropping tools and fumbling stuff all the time.  Just got off the phone making an appointment to see the doc about options.


Ed, even the DR isn't working for me right now.  That's about as upright and neutral as it gets.  I ride many different bikes in the course of a week and nothing's hit the spot yet.  25k miles a year to les than 1k so far in 2014.

Daytona prepped for consignment.  It's going up for $1995.  Within the last 3k miles, I've rebuilt the suspension, new PR3s, new DID chain, tuned up, air filter and a general check up.  All touring and LD gear has been removed.


All the travel stickers are gone too.   :'(

It didn't happen because I ran out of time.  Had to do some major suspension work on my car to include struts, springs, lower control arms and sway bar bushings.  Still need to do the upper control arms and some front end bushings on Sunday.  By the time I finished up for the day, it was 6PM and the track closed at 8.  It was 90 minutes away too.

Did some dirty riding with OU812 (Steve) at a private track at a friends house in Trever WI.

The track is in a wooded area  where the sun can't dry it out and with all the rain we've been getting the dirt was pretty moist witch make for some deep ruts.

Well in one straight I cross rutted and lost the front wheel and went down on my left side and slid on my side with the bike on top of me.

Steve got the bike off of me and I sat there for a few minuets before i got up.  I could feel the Scapula was sore but i could move everything and no cracking feeling.

I had a Saturday and Sunday planed to go racing MX but if it still bothers me i won't be doing that.

This getting old shit hurts.

I did! If I make it home today without getting rained on, it will make FIVE commutes in a row! New record (I hope I didn't jinx it.) I must admit, I am feeling a little cocky, left the rain gear at home.

It was 60 and humid/foggy this morning, got detoured through a downtown section due to road closures, smelled bacon from a restaurant I didn't know was there. All in all, a lovely commute, I felt blessed to have a motorcycle to ride, and the day to enjoy.

Getting ready to fire up the KLR for the 8.5 mile commute.  Got some welding to do on my lunch hour.  The top rack needs a plate added to mount the Kolpin gas can.  It's just about ready for the big trip.  Sometime this coming weekend, I'll mount up the TKCs and fresh tubes, then the DR gets the commuting duties.


I'm putting the MX jacket on for the ride in.  Brrr!

Rode the piss out of the DR on our shop test track last night.  Damn, I really like this bike and I may actually be improving my off road skills.  It's doesn't feel funny to slide the rear end around corner berms anymore in second gear. 

Boss says we need to start shopping for ice tires for this winter.  :naughty:   The tech crew does Sunday rides on the local lake during the winter.

Edited to add:  I must have been having fun.  Gas mileage was down to 47 on that tank from a "normal" of 58.

Rode Friday in one of the top ten worst storms for me. Temp dropped 23 degrees, and rain and hail was so bad that cars stopped on the expressway under an overpass. Both directions. Right in the lane. Blocked traffic up for miles. Fortunately, motorcycles can get around, except for those blocking the sides under the overpass. Rode up the west coast yesterday too. Gonna do some more today.

On the way back, the motorcycle was more like a unicycle for some reason.   ;)

I wasn't all that worried, as I park in a luxury building (Trump Tower), where there are vehicles putting my Sprint to serious shame, but you never know...

Twice in 9 years isn't going to get me to stop killing the motor with the kickstand...

When I first got back into riding after a 12 year hiatus, I had a zero mph drop because I forgot to drop the kickstand, hopped off the bike, and got my non-motorcycle gear boot stuck on the tail pack, and after hopping on one foot for a while, gently let the bike down on its side...  Since then Ive always killed the bike by dropping the stand when in first gear.  But I hear you.

Two more counties. Started earlier than last weekend. Almost 300 miles. Got home just after noon. Already mid 90's when I got home.

To be fair though, this summer has been pretty sweet compared to my previous 5 years here.  :thumbsup:


The roads still suck donkey balls.  :'(


Hit way more than a ton a bunch of times. In fact my run from Glazier to Lipscomb and back was on the line of ton +10 or 20. Straight roads and fresh asphalt with no chance of po-po equals uninhibited right wrist.  ;D

rode home from work (13 miles) on the new addition. wanted something faster so I took the wife's 2006 S40 (w/ 2700 miles). LOL.  first real ride since we bought it a couple weeks ago. Drove great when I test rode it, but now it's got some surging issues. Guess it's time for a tune-up. boy, I bet that's gonna be spendy. NOT! didn't ride too bad except the upper portion of my butt is sore from the way the seat is shaped. guess I'm getting older and joints are opening up. Didn't have NEAR as much pain as I did when I rode that HD Heritage Softail Special (a.k.a Sturgis Cop Bike). I only rode the HD about 1/4 mile. Riding the S40 is really weird. not used to something that can barely get out of its own way. Plus, the front brakes are shot. Dealer is doing those next week (as part of the deal for purchase). Woot!  I actually enjoyed the short ride. Something different. will I ever own one, as is, as my personal ride? naw, but I might do the Ryca Cafe kit to this one if the wife wants to move up...oh the humanity...   my first project bike!!!!  unless I get a 6th gen VFR before then. muhaaha

oh, and here's a pic of her ride. She's like a lil kid since it's her first bike ever.

I don't understand...
How do you ride home from work on something you didn't ride TO work??
You say you "wanted something faster" and then say "so I took the wife's 2006 S40"   They contradict!!

Took Sprout to the babysitter's on the bicycle for the 4th day in a row.  I can still fit in those clothes by the grace of spandex.  Not so much with the armor. :(

That reminds me, I should probably put some Stabil in the gas tank and put the Ninja up on its stand.

I rode into a thunderstorm on Saturday.  I saw the blob of bad weather on the radar but thought I might be able to make it to my destination in time.  Let's just say hard rain and gusting sidewinds are not fun to ride in.  Thankfully, the bad weather hit only several miles from my destination.  Vision became a problem when there was moisture on the inside of my shield.  I stayed dry except my gloves which are the only part of my gear not waterproof.

I geared up this morning and took the Aprilia out for a spin.  First time I've ridden since getting back from our cross country.  Wound up stopping by the local Triumph dealer and test riding an Explorer, just for the helluvit.  It wasn't a long or exciting test ride - the dealership requires the salesman accompany you and the route he took (he was on a Bonnie) was short and lacking in twisties.  My overall first impression of the Explorer was the engine was smoother than my GSA; it shifted well; the stock seat was comfy; the stock windshield sucked; the handlebars would need to come up & back.  The biggest difference though was the steering - I found my GSA, even when fully loaded, turns and corners much easier than I was able to get the Explorer to.  Odd.  Before discounting it entirely I'd really like to try one out again, on a longer (preferably unaccompanied) ride on some nice windy hilly roads.

My local Triumph dealer only requires that I sign a form and makes a copy of my license. Hands me the keys and says have a good ride. When I took the speedy out for a test ride before I bought it I was gone for almost an hour.

Rode yesterday to pick up Five Guys supper for my Honey. She's sick. So she gets to pick what she wants for sup sup. Short ride but still had a blast since I haven't rode in 2-3 weeks. New job doesn't allow for as much fun. No bike commuting for me. :(   Can't trust the weather between there and here. Had some snow/sleet/rain/fog/drizzle falling last commute with 29-34 degree temps. oh, and through in the occasionally deer/antelope.

Car's in the shop for rear suspension rebuild.  Needs lower and upper control arms. :bluduh:  Guess who's riding tomorrow?  Got the DR back out of the basement and laid out the Gerbings for the morning commute.  Thankfully, it's less than 9 miles of two lane roads.  I think I'll pack the Battery Tender for recharging the battery at work.

Oh, snow's all gone here and the high winds are redistributing the leaf population.

Wanted to ride today but instead cleaned the gutters, put the Christmas lights, got the snow blower started, got the snowmobile out of the shed, put the EX and the KX in the shed for the winter, and other odds and ends.

I do need some beer so what the heck I'll take the speedy for a wheelie or two.

finally got my laptop running. Rode with the Wife on Friday (for date night). went up to Deadwood by way of 44 and 385. it started out at 64 degrees. by the time we got to Deadwood, it was 52. Wife doesn't have the good gear so she was quite cold. stopped at the Franklin for sup sup. left at 7ish and temps kept dropping otw home to BE. it was cold enough for her that her legs were beet red when we finally pulled in. She sure is a trooper to go hang in there with all the crap I put her through.

Like I told the co-workers - if I didn't ride every time they forecast rain, I'd never ride!  It didn't rain, so neener!  Today, OTOH, was fooking gorgeous.  Everyone in the shop rode in today.  I should have driven.   ;D

For me this was the first joyride of any length this year.  Got the phototag and rode for awhile- the cool thing about riding the XR (as many of you know) is the ability to choose each dirt road and seasonal road you can find- I sometimes ride the same area on the Bandit, but it's different on the XR.  New places!

Rode up to Brookfield Friday to pick up parts for the FJR. Called the Lurker for a meet but he had other things to do.  :rolleyes:

On the way home I hit the rain just south of Union Grove. I made a U turn and found a place with an overhang to get into the rain suit. There were ice pellets mixed in the rain to. It was raining till I got south of the cheddar curtain then wet roads all the way home.

A 5/5 commute this week!   8)

I also helped a fellow motorcyclist this morning (out of gas & dead battery).  Poor guy had already pushed his motorcycle (1993 Suzuki GS500) about a mile and wasn't familiar with the area.  He was hoping to push to a gas station and wondered where the next one was.  Since that was another 2 miles up the road, I offered him a ride.  He bought a gas can, filled it, and I took him back.  We added the gas and after a number of tries we were able to bump start it. 

Lessons learned: learn your motorcycle before putting your faith in the reserve tank.  He said this reserve tank was a different capacity than his last motorcycle, and apparently so.  And, being stranded sucks, but it was nice to be on the helping end for once.

44° this morning, radiant hues of orange filled the sky as the sun tried to push its way through the clouds to my left and fading to a mottled gray/azure mix to my right. My jacket and grips provided heat to counter-act the slight humidity to the air while the boxer sung its favorite 5000 rpm tune to me. My fellow commuters played nice with each other and I arrived at work to the smell of bacon from the cafeteria. I could have commuted all day.

So I took the Ninja to the closest SOS to get it registered.  In total did at least 100 miles hitting most of the fun roads on the island.  It was a little chilly 51 on the shore 65 inland.

M.Brane and I rode 33 out to Lockwood Valley Road and then up to Pine Mountain Club for lunch. Then one of our favorites - Cerro Noroeste 'Cerro No Arreste'. The Kern County Board of Supervisors renamed the road Hudson Ranch Road. But it will always be Cerro Noroeste to us. Then west on 166 and south on 33 and home.

It was a lovely day. No serious traffic.

Got done with Fourstrings ZX9 today so I needed to take it for a shake down ride. Where to go? Went back and rode some more Ducati's

Took the 821 Monster for a wheelie um spin. Talk about shits and giggles. That bike did everything rite. It by far was my favorite  bike I rode. Truly a hooligan bike. The motor had plenty of torque, the handling was spot on, and the front brakes if your not easy WILL put you over the bars. I was talking to the Ducati rep and asked him why the tanks are white and there's no decal's on the tank and he said that is the most dropped bike because riders don't realize how powerful the brakes are. Actually someone in the group came back before I took off did just that.

Railed around on my son's SV650. Noted: stock suspension is not remotely like my Strom's Wilbers. But the lighter weight makes for big fun; wheelies may have inadvertently occurred.

I not only rode today, I rode ALL day.
17 hours, 3 states, 704 miles.
Started out very early and had the roads to myself for a few hours.  Happened to find myself on a freshly paved road shortly after sun up with out cross streets for a ways and I just rolled on the throttle to commemorate the momentous circumstance.  I think I did over 175 kph. but my math may be wrong...
No sit down meals, didn't even have anything hot to eat.
It got a little warm this afternoon, but was really nice again when the sun started going down as I got back to my home territory.

We did and yesterday too...

For those of you in Southern California, Angeles Forest Road has fresh blacktop is quite delish! Also Aliso Canyon Road has been freshened up as well. Rode the Angeles Crest Highway west to east on Saturday and east to west on Sunday. Not too bad; Saturday was better than Sunday, but in general, the douchbaggery level was low.

Rode a 100 miles in this shit. 50 of that was in the dark. The lightning show was impressive. A lot of cloud to cloud lightning but some ground strikes to. One was around 1000 feet away.

Been getting in at least a trip to town every other week for the past month or so.  For those that don;t know that means a 100mile round trip on some of the better roads in the UP.

Got caught in a down pour just as I was heading home once.  I was dry for about 20 miles, well the parts that were in gear at least, I need some riding pants.  After that I just ended up soaked for the last 25.  Rain gear is on the list too.

Been alternating between my Nighthawk and the wife's Ninja 250, that damn 250 is finiky when cold.  This is all leading up to a moto camping trip this weekend with the wife!!!  Wooooo Hooooo, only took five years.

I rode yesterday and noticed that I had turned over 4k miles. WOOOT!!!!!  yeah, it's pathetic, but when ya only get a chance to ride once every few months, miles rack up slow. also, My neck pain is so much lower since I went for that multi stop ride (applebees's, Freeds, Target, In-laws, then home)

Goal is either somewhere in the Porcupine Mts, or Pictured Rocks.  Its all up to how far Jess can ride, and which way she wants to go, so I'm looking up nearly all the camping areas in the UP.

I've got routes that cover roads we nornally do not take when going somewhere, but this is about mostly the going, no the somewhere.

Congrats! 5 years is record time!

She rode when we met nearly 20 years ago, I still have her bike.  I sorely want to get it running for our 20th.

Gearing up for the annual employee ride today.  Headed to Kawkawlin, MI with probably 15 other bikes.  Store owner is buying lunch and then I'm taking the long way home after a stop for fresh apple pie in Linwood.  :D




Added:  that'll show the bike it's in trouble.  200 miles in rain for my first longer ride.  LMAO!  I need a new seat and the apes most definitely need to disappear.  The rotator cuffs talked to me all the way home.

I got up early to ride today.
I put new brake pads on the rear of my 950 last night but couldn't bed them in because it was wet out.

Shout out for Don & Roys in Brookfield - they had EBC HH's in stock at basically the same price as Dennis Kirk and MC superstore - and no shipping costs. 

So I got up early and went out and bedded them in.  Which was easy because there wasn't much traffic at that time of day.  Took a slow, meandering way home to let them cool down (which is part of the bedding).

Then I rode to work.

Not yet, but if I don't, we will have snow. Me acquiring a four-wheel vehicle will ensure that I won't need it at all this winter. Remember when I bought a snow plow? It sat in the garage all winter until the warrantee was up.

A wee bit cooler today.  Yesterday, I was in your area.  Left Waterford and came north thru Holly, Fenton and back south thru Milford.  The Glide kinda surprised me on the handling department.  She leans pretty good.

Sure beats the cornfields of northern Lapeer county, doesn't it?

I thought it felt a "bit" cooler for the ride in today & as I was gearing up, deciding to forego the 'lectric vest thinking it dosen't feel THAT chilly! :o
On the bright side, I'm not the only one here at the shop who rode in & it looks like it'll be nice-n-sunny-n -warm for the ride home!

He either lane split, turned without signalling or turned on red when he shouldn't have... that is, if his license plate wasn't misspelled.

EDIT - or passed on the right at a light...not sure what that ticket would be. Improper lane usage is my bet.

to clarify, the Pilot 3s are great in the rain.

12k miles in, though, while thr harder center portion of the front tire looks damn near new, the softer compound just to the left and right of center is worn almost treadless . . . . .and flat.

The result if something like the triangular race tires of the 80s . . . . .rapid tip in, and wonky handling anywhere but in that one angle.

It handles better than I expected for a cruiser!  Lean angles are good, roughly 35* or so.  Nothing has been scraped on the ground yet.  Acceleration is good because it's a relatively light bike and I'm 165# soaking wet.  IOW, I'm enjoying it.  Over the winter, it'll have another 30 horsepower added with a 103 CI kit and torque producing cams, a bigger carb and free flowing air cleaner.  It's got Vance and Hines straight shot exhaust already.  Dyno numbers were 71 horses and just shy of 80 lb/ft of torque.  We're shooting for 100 hp/110 torque.   :naughty:

  Nice lookin' scoot!   That lakeside pic looks similiar to the sled launch site behind the White Lake Inn.....

  I was FINALLY able to take the bike for a ride late this afternoon after it was parked for BOTH saturday & Sunday. Started to change the rear tire on saturday & my shop compressor couldn't muster the air volume needed to seat the bead of the new Metzeler Z6. Naturally, this occured AFTER all the local bike shops closed, hence having to wait until today to get the offending bead seated.

 I could use this as an excuse to ask santa for a spare set of hoops & rim protectors for the bike.  ;^))

Ya rode today. 32° when I left the house. The left gerbings glove died. Hit sun, fog, sun, fog, sun, Heavy fog. Dropped speed to 45. Coffee was hot. The sun came out. The ride home was a lot nicer. Stopped at a friends and watched the end of the Bears game then watched the Blackhawks game then more football. Got out of there at 11:00pm. The bike was covered with frost and found out the the roads were too when the front wheel decided to skate a little bit making a turn. The ride home was a slow one.

Rode to the biker leather shop to get the zipper replaced on my jacket that broke last night. Had to break out the old Cortech leather jacket. Forgot how heavy and bulky it was. After I dropped off the jacket I went across the street to a coffee shop for a hot brew. Then home. Did not see one bike out all day.

Rode the Husky TE610 sumo.

I pegged it on a local street and was coming up to a T intersection with no stop sign. I was going to take a hard right and at the last second I saw a car coming. Grabbed the brakes (and these things are so strong it will get you in trouble) and stopped. It was a state police car. I turned behind him and he turned left at the next street and I went straight. Award avoided.

Good thing I don't own this thing because it could be very bad for my license.

After spending the week sick & housebound I finally felt good enough to get the DR pretty much put together (and thanks to Tammy for all her help).   Took it out for a little putt this afternoon.  All I'm waiting on now is the LeoVince can.

Lapeer Dragway for sure.  Dunno when, but I'll post up before we go.  I got the "its too cold to be riding" from the motorclothes ladies today.  Sucks to be weather limited.

I'll be there (most likely).  ;) I'm on day 4of commuting this week, and it looks like the first full week of 2016. I did get a couple of, "aren't you kind of pushing it?" comments.

Yay! First full week of commuting! Blinky the Snowflake® gave up only 15 minutes into the ride, I think I am wearing him down.

Highlight of the day*, got off the expressway and stopped at the light at the end of ramp and pulled up next to a Jeep with a pretty redhead in it. She looked over at me in all my hi-vis, looked me up and down and broke into a big smile. I watched her say "yeah..." and then she got this faraway look in her eyes and kept right on smiling. Then the light changed and our brief encounter was over.  8)

Some people will never get it. I walked in to work today with my helmet and gear. A coworker looks at me and says "You know it's supposed to rain this afternoon, right?". The phrase "You idiot" was implied at the end. I just said "Yep" and sat down to take my boots off.

10° delta commute this morning. 34° to 44°. Lots of fog (I'm not a fan of 34° and fog) and Blinky the Snowflake® had to keep playing hide and seek on my instrument panel. He thinks he's so funny. I put tape over him.

And how, in God's name can you bounce a late production Pontiac Grand Am sideways down a straight, dry, flat 3 lane expressway? She was four or five cars ahead of me, brake lights came on, and up the slot between cars I see this Grand Am sliding sideways then it disappears and rebounds off a guard rail. Wasn't ABS pretty much standard by the end of production? That thing was hopping sideways and whipping around before it ended up in the middle on the guard rail. Isn't that what ABS, TRC, TCS and all the safety-nanny acronyms supposed to prevent? No one needs to know how to drive or pay attention, right?

^^^ That looks like a great day.

I commuted again today. I needed it. 41° and clear. Lower number of unaware drivers than usual. The traffic gods were smiling on me.

Out and about.  First full day off with good weather.  Thought about south, but rain at the ohio/michigan border.  West it is!  Lunch stop at the old Wooden Nickel.

That's the one.  Most excellent mushroom swiss burger, heap of onion rings and a pickle slice.  Went with the Coke instead of a beer.  Played some pull tabs and kept my investment after six of them.

I'm gonna have lots of time now.  I'm out of a job.  We fired all the porters and janitor last November.  I was asked to step down as a tech and do both jobs during the off season with the understanding I would resume my mechanic's position come spring. 

Long story short, we hired a porter who started Monday. As a mechanic. I showed up today to find out I was fucked again and had a rather heated discussion with my service manager. I think I shouldn't have called him a passive aggressive loser. <grin> I'm now looking to hire into a metric shop again. The tool boxes are in the garage and I've been exploring options. Got one job offer to work as a parts weenie at a local shop, but I'd rather not if I can wrench. Called a buddy (service mgr) at his new shop and he's talking to the owner tomorrow about hiring me as a tech.

In a week, I'll file for unemployment because I was not working in my hired position for over six months.[/color]

Got out for a little ride on the speedy last night. It was cool and a fog was starting to form so I stopped at a Starbucks for a cup of joe. I got a small table and put the helmet on a chair and hung the jacket. Long story short I was reading and knocked over the coffee and it went on the helmet.  :angry: The jacket got some of it too. Got the liner pretty dry. At least it wasn't a beer or something more. That would be fun to explain if I got pulled over.

That thing about having a buddy as a service manager?  I'm back to work starting NOW.  Four days/ten hours per.  Wednesday thru Saturday tentatively.  Money will be better and I'll be a mechanic again.


Time to rent that trailer and haul that big ass box out of the garage.

Had widely scattered rain yest.  Was clear when I got home so jumped on the Ninja for a local meandering and a stop for gas.  And it started raining.  But not hard so I kept riding.
I kinda like the challenges of riding in the rain.  But I'm getting really intolerant of sitting at stop lights in rain.  I resent that some f*ng computer chip is controlling me by turning some lights different colors and we all obey like minions...  So then I went home.
Got a text asking if I rode / got wet.  I replied that I did.  She asked what I did then.  "Got wet an kept riding"

Been commuting regularly since the weather broke. 


Work has been mostly carb rebuilds as bikes come out of hibernation. 


I've got a YFZ quad that needs a full top end rebuild with parts ordered. 


Today, I tackled a Venture Royale linked brake job.  It's front forks are blown out with fork oil all over the "new" oil soaked front pads he had installed last summer.  The rear pedal had no pressure at all.  Rear pads were 50%, so I broke out the power bleeder and purged the system.  It worked just fine and it now has stopping power front and rear.  We're quoting the owner 5 hours labor and parts to fix the front end.


Saturday, I'm doing recall work for new units on the floor.  A headlight wiring loom recall on a Slingshot, frame reinforcements on a couple quads and some other crap.  It's been fun, low pressure and calm.  Emphasis on calm.  My back is no longer hurting, my blood pressure is lower than normal and I'm having a riot.


Sunday, it's lunch!

Yay! That is great news. Your work environment can really set the tone for your time. Sounds like you can start to enjoy your summer (if/when  it gets here.)

So who didn't ride today? The parking spot I have been enjoying by myself for past couple of months was overrun by pirate ships this morning. I know for sure now the weather is going to be sunny and mild.

Got a text asking if I rode / got wet.  I replied that I did.  She asked what I did then.  "Got wet an kept riding"

I always reply, "No, my gear got wet, but I am dry."

Got my new riding pants and last RAM mount piece, got he bits on the bike and took off for a little ride.  Got about a mile out of town and bike dies. Tank was very empty.  These things need gas.  Lucky just enough in reserve to make it back home.

Need to move the RAM as it blocks the gear indicator.

Got wet on Friday on the way out the door (went from CHicago to Michigan) and I'm hoping to stay dry on the way home today...

TOO HOT on the way in, should have ridden the naked bike... Had a court appearance first thing today and even after a 10 minute stop in the office (and a 10 minute walk to court) I couldn't stop sweating... And that's with mesh gear. I need a new, silver mesh jacket that reflects the sun and lets more air through...

Nope, downhill to the off ramp, then slightly uphill.  Wasn't too bad after pushing Harleys for a year.  Ducatis are much lighter.  3.85 gallons into a 3.9 gallon tank.


On a side note, the new tires arrived and are installed.  TKC80s Rock and look bad ass on this bike.

Cindy & I have been on the road since Saturday morning for our Annual Reunion week which is in Nashville this year.

Day 1 was pretty boring slab to Cherokee NC. But Sunday morning we headed up Rt28  to the Dragon store and did some shopping. 

Skipped the Dragon this time opting instead to head south on 129 to Joyce Killer Rd and the Cherohala Skyway.  The NC side of the Skyway has been freshly paved and was really dialed in to the sweepers :-).

Coming down the TN side however we came up to a fresh accident scene with a rider down.  Not really sure what happened but a woman on a Dyna went wide on a left hand sweeper into the guard rail.  Her right leg was severely mangled with the bone completely snapped off below the knee poking out.

She was awake and conscious, but had no clue of the extent of her injury. Which was a good thing.  We stayed at the scene until EMS arrived and then got out of their way.

Was in my riding gear and went out to the garage to swing a leg over.  I hadn't realized how much Fourstring had spread around the tools on Sunday when he was wrenching on all the bicycles.  everything was blocking my bike.  Oh yeah, and there were bike tires hanging from my top case.  There was no way I was making it to work on time if I had to clean it all up.  *sigh* And the weather is quite nice today.

As a wise man once said, "They should all be sausage and gloves." I used to see 12 dead deer regularly every year on my commute of 40 miles. I just followed a cage through deer alley or kept my speed down. Since I moved, I see maybe 3 for 50 miles. Either way, I'm riding. This time of the year is the best!

45 degrees this morning with 20mph winds.  Broke out the heated jacket for the first time on the Caponord with the larger windscreen.  On the Multi almost always had the Gerbings on full.  Didn't wire up the controller on the Capo yet, so had the Gerbings on full the whole time.  WAY too warm behind the big screen!

Had to, a beautiful day 78 degree today in the NE in November  :)

The building behind the Capo is Hollybush Mansion, the site of the Glassboro Summit between Johnson and Kosygin in 1967.

A balmy 45° this morning at 5:30. Hoping for a couple more degrees for the ride home, but being November in Michigan, I'll take what I can get. And love it.

A cool 40o this morning on the west side.  The afternoon ride home should be wonderful.

Does dragging the bike to the city on a trailer to drop it off at a friend's garage (where he will add his bike to the trailer and drive it to Barber Motorsports) count? I was driving the minivan, pulling the trailer...

Here's a pic before I loaded the bike last night...

Upper 60's not far from home (barely 60 along lake Michigan) so I did a couple hundred miles.  It woulda been more, but I spent 2.5 hrs waiting around to hear when I can buy some used CO2 tanks from a guy on OfferUp (an app based version of craigslist).  The SOB never replied.  The tanks are for making my own soda...

Met up with some old buddies for lunch and decided to ride there. The sprint is still out of commission so i put the street tires on the KLX. Got a nice 100 mile ride in with a friend who rode his 93 VFR to lunch. Hit what twisty roads we could then i explored some dirt roads on the way home. The more i ride the KLX, the more I love it. Fantastic day

Finally have the sprint back together and caught up for the moment on my honey do list. Was able to get in my first good ride today with the new suspension on the sprint. Did a nice 240 mile ride out to Mason, MI. I wanted to check out the new MI barnwood and salvage co out there and it was in the area I love to ride in anyway. Stopped at the Vault Delicatessen in downtown Mason for lunch. Great place and i will definitely be going back there. We should call a lunch ride there. http://www.thevaultdeli.com/Menu_Vaultmenu_01.17v2.pdf (http://www.thevaultdeli.com/Menu_Vaultmenu_01.17v2.pdf)

Suspension is working out great. Have preliminary static sag settings on it for now. Will need to get a couple guy's to give me a hand setting it up properly. Front seams dialed in pretty dam good. I'm not feeling anything through bars now, the front is pretty plush yet planted and stable. Even braking is better and the bike feels more solid. Money well spent. Got chased home from Holly by the rain. It was sprinkling on me yet the roads were dry in front of me, but black behind me. Made it home just in time. Fantastic day.  :chili:

Took a ride to get a hot dog but the truck closed before I got there.  Then I went to check out a new craft beer bar but the parking lot was full for some function.  Then I was heading for a local microbrewery but they were all closed on Wed.!  So I stopped at a local watering hole on my way home.  But I got in almost 4 hours of riding in the 80's F.

I did! Best morning commute of the year so far. Mesh and light traffic, and the trooper who rolled up on me while I was 'rolling' along was blinded by my hi-vis and impressed with all my safety gear enough that he decided I wasn't the droid he was looking for after a couple of miles.

Ran into an old neighbor from when i was growing up at my Nieces graduation party yesterday. He was the guy that gave me my first real ride on a street bike when i was a kid. Probably 40 years ago. He is still riding a gold wing at 79. We went for a nice 250 mile ride around the thumb today. A little breezy but a nice ride and was good to finally get a chance to ride with him after all these years.  :thumbsup:

Got a nice 230 mile loop in getting a photo tag on this gorgeous day. Scrubbed in the new front tire and had a few pleasant surprises. I have been disapointed the last few times riding out around the jackson area. Some of my favorite roads have gotten pretty chewed up and are nolonger  fun to ride. Today, I turned onto Seymour road and found it completely repaved and i believe some more camber in a few turns all the way from Clear Lake rd (Waterloo) to Jackson.   :willy:  Temporary centerline markers are still in place which slowed me down a bit. Will be very nice once the edge and center lines are in. Stobart rd on the south side of the Milford Proving grounds has also been mostly repaved. No more tar snakes on the west end. Looks like Ricky is finally spending some of our tax dollars.

I took the Ninja to the next town for lunch and their BIG hardware store to bed-in the new rear brake pads.
Got a free bike wash on the ride home.  I didn't bother with the rain pants because I wasn't that far.

I DID!!
I rode ALL DAY today.

Hit the road on the Ninja at dawn; 6 am
Rode south - to get a better view of the eclipse.  Didn't make it to the 'path of totality', but I didn't plan to because I didn't want to deal with crazy traffic.
I rode down to Bloomington IL and checked the weather for which direction would have the clearest skies.  I went SW.  Ended up south of Springfield, IL.   The sky was mostly clear, but the eclipse was a bit disappointing. It never got dark - barely at all.  The only reason I knew it was happening was because I knew the start (and max) time.  I pulled off the road, took the eclipse glasses out of the thank bag and confirmed it was starting.   I kept riding south and west and checking it every so often until it was at about 66%.
I had about 15 mins of rain on the trip down.  The trip back was practically perfect.
12.5 hrs.  680 miles.

Perfect day for a ride.
I went to Madisons airport, private pilots terminal restaurant (Jet Room) for lunch.   Nice place.  Nice view of the planes.  Just a bit hard to find as it doesn't have a sign on the outside of the bldg.
Then I went to the dairy and Hoard museum in Fort Atkinson.  Hoard was a WI governor that basically created the dairy industry.  They also have quite a bit about Lincoln, because his only military experience was in the Black Hawk war that was commanded from Fort Atkinson.  And they have info on the effigy mounds of WI (we have more than anyone else).  They pre-date known native american tribes.
200 miles.  A tad cool starting out (in mesh jacket) and a bit warm on the final leg home.

36 degrees going in for the morning commute with a minute or two of brief, light snow.  The ride home is the last one for me this year.  A poor year mileage wise (my worst in a decade) but that was to be expected with a new daughter born this year.  The later is more important and makes me happier.   :)

Is that your bike? I've always had a soft spot for those big twin Suzukis.

Hello.

Where is this?

Immediately south of Sea Island, slightly northeast of Jekyll.
If she's in Georgia.

Thank you.

Is she or that light house in Georgia? Or Region 4?

Thanks in advance!

Hmm, didn't you move to Florida for the winter?  WTF difference does it make where she posts it with the severe lack of traffic on this website?


Cheers.

What's the problem? I am curious to the location of the lighthouse.

I thought maybe someone knew. I was hoping for a response from the person that posted the pictue.

Sorry to have ruined your day, I hope that it gets better for you.

Take care.
