"Blinky the Snowflake®" nagged at me all the way in today 32-35° the whole time. I was really hoping for 36-38°, which is really a sad thing to say.
Ride home will be 50° and sunny, so i have that going for me.

I had a new tire put on the front wheel yesterday.   I had a new tire put on the rear today.  The car said it was 57 on the drive home.  The bank said it was 56.
So after re-installing the wheel, I went out riding for 3 hours.
It's forecast to be even nicer Thurs and Fri!

I'm seriously thinking about buying a 3rd heated sock.  :o

I took the family to northern lower Michigan this past weekend.  I gave them a spirited ride on M-119 Tunnel of the Trees, but in the minivan (as spirited as a minivan can be).  They enjoyed it.  However, a minivan just doesn't capture the same thrill that the motorcycle does going through there. 

I always thought it'd be a nice ride to take on the motorcycle in the fall and see the changing colors.  This past Saturday was rainy and wet leaves covered the road and all I could think was "in these conditions, this would absolutely suck on a motorcycle.  I'm glad I'm in the van today."  However, it was still nice to revisit one of the best motorcycle roads in lower Michigan.

I got out for over 4 hrs today on the new-to-me F800ST.
I am really liking this bike!  We fit each other very well.
I tired to go the the Yerkes' observatory by Lake Geneva, but they've got the access road gated off - the observatory closed permanently earlier this year.    Not even able to see it thru the trees.
So I meandered around and hit a few of my favorite roads in the area, like Nature and Bluff, west of Mukwonago.
The bike encourages me to go as fast as I want, but doesn't lure me to go faster. Line corrections are easy.
I'm still learning the power band - it pulls from just over 2K, but really gets interesting above 6K.  Redline is 8.5K.

40 degrees on the way in, 37 on the way home. Left glove doesn't heat.  Only 110 miles today. I miss summer.
