Yes.

What a parade? All the traffic!

Right? I had less traffic on the pavement in this video shot earlier yesterday.

60's all week and a forecast of 70 on Friday.

Oddly enough there are no other bikes in the lot.

Not only is it, it's incredibly easy and looks finished without it.  BMW needed to spread the word.
The bike is so much more nimble without it.  F6Bish & K1600Bish long before anyone cared.

Got my first ride in of they year on the trail bike yesterday.

FJR is still in storage. The snow blower and a pile of tote boxes are barring access to it.  This weekend for sure. I've got to have it out and prepped for the first ride of the year down to SEO first weekend of May.

Yesterday's ride was 325 miles total. Around 75 gravel. Some nasty jeep trails. Dropped it 3 times. Third time I tweaked my back. I was having so much fun that I forgot to take pictures until I got home.

Got in a couple hundred miles and burned a half tank of gas on the North Carolina back roads.  Stopped for lunch in Murfreesboro.

Another week and I should be able to venture farther than a few miles from home. Still not a whole lot of strength in my left arm.

Shakedown ride to Hawk's Nest.  Not the one in WV!  It was closed for roadwork.  So I took the Wee up on Skyline Drive.  Not that one either!

Stopped here on the way home.  Rates are reasonable.  But they don't do motorcycles.  Just can't make this stuff up.

(yesterday)
Rode the 5 miles up to work to grab the old laptop (got a new one the other day and have been setting it up). Ended up spending the whole day in the office. WHO DOES THAT? WHEN DOES THE BURNING STOP??

Rode home after, then went to a police fund raising food truck event up the street.

A windy and chilly ride today.  After getting home it looks like my front tire may actually need replacing before the rear.  It feels that way on the road as well.

My ol' CBR was designed that way and I had to argue with the guy getting it inspected. Like, I had to find the owner's manual online on his computer, and show him the PDF.  :baldy:

After spending the majority of the weekend in the car driving to and from CT for my parents 50th Anniversary and Mother's day,  I did get to for a little ride this morning.  Headed to Avalon NJ for a week of beach work.  Tried to take the Lewes, DE - Cape May Ferry but I got there at the wrong time and was going to have a 2.5 hr wait for the next boat.  So i had to ride the long way round. All on the clock  8)
