We ended up with 11" of the white stuff here overnight with a nice layer of sleet about halfway through it. 

No riding today.  On the upside, i didn't  have a heart attack while shoveling. :thumbsup:

Snow is mostly gone, roads are clean and dry, the sun's out, and the temp is above freezing-I'm riding! ;):smiley_thumb:

It was nearly 70 deg in southern VA.  Logged 183 miles for some burgers in Kilmarnock.  The restaurant was formerly known as Northern Neck Burgers. But they're try to franchise and have changed the name to No Nonsense Burgers

Picked up a bike the Saturday before Christmas and have 700 miles on it already. Christmas day was a little cold. Other than that i didn't ride 2 days except for work days. Had to make room for the new bike and it rained.

Hopefully this year will be a little drier.

40*F today and snuck in a couple hours ride as we have super cold temps coming next week. I keep telling myself spring will roughly be here in 90 days. I hope everyone is getting out a little here and there.

70 and sunny here in S TX. I did a Melke run on the bike to the local HEB for some supplies and rode around town a little. I'll spare you any pics...

I usually take the bike into the store at least 3 times a week. There's only so much you can stuff in a backpack at a time, and the RV has a fairly small fridge. So far, I've only had to get all bundled up twice to survive the trip.

I did!!! Just got back from my first "proper" ride on the Super Duke (5 months since the accident). Took the afternoon off and did a quick blast down through the Laurel Highlands into WV and back. Four hours / 180 miles. The leg didn't complain. The butt didn't complain. I could have done without the traffic and wind, but the sunshine and blue skies were awesome. Great views with super clear air. Chicken strips are still huge. Between the dirty roads and not having my mojo back yet, the pegs were in no danger of touching down. But I still had a great afternoon.

Short loop around White's Mill and Swamp Creek.  This bike is so much better suited for PA backroad gravel & potholes.

400 mile day. My first legit long day (9 hours) and my first legit twisty fix. Headed out to southeast OH and hit the usual suspects. Roads are generally in fine shape with the exception of 255. It's an un-rideable dirty bombed out mess. Stay away. Slowly getting more comfortable on the bike. Today was the first extended bit of technical riding for me and it went pretty well. No pics. The trees will be blooming in a few weeks and make for some nice photos. Things are still just kinda brown and drab out there right now.

Got about 350 miles in a dreary day Saturday.  We rode to Morton's annual Spring open house.   Jeff Massey cut way back this year.  Hardly any vendors, no lunch provided and attendance was way down.   Bummer.

Sunday got 50 miles in to the monthly breakfast meeting,  but had to get home afterwards to take care of a few things that I didn't do on Saturday...refer to the non-moto thread for more info.

Made it out for a quick 100 miles yesterday, despite the afternoon drizzle. Highlights - a covered bridge, yellow flowers (daffodils and forsythia) everywhere, and backroads winding around old stone farmhouses.

I had to swerve to avoid a possum on it's back on the side of the road. The quick glance I had time for didn't show any injuries. I'm still pondering whether it was roadkill or not.

Yeah, I know. Me too. It was supposed to be cloudy with <5% of rain all afternoon. And it rained pretty hard too, not just a shower. I guess I needed to get that out of the way at some point on the road to getting my mojo back. I was tip-toeing through the corners.
