Riding Season's Open - 2014

I officially declare: 2014 Riding Season in the Twin Cities

The roads are surprisingly good considering the Winter we have had. Considering we still have 2-feet of snow on the ground, the sun feels INCREDIBLY GOOD!

After my first ride today, I dropped off the Gerbings and helmet and did another 20 miles. I'm very glad I did.

Thanks, Happy Dan, for leaving Minnesota. Mother Nature can finally be nice to us now.

I am thinking about registering my Yamaha and getting that working if I have time this week. Right now I would not want to take my Vic on the streets. Lots of salt. BUT the Yamaha, I want to turn that into a rat bike so a little salt will help the cause :)

AWWWWRIGHT Rick!

Great picture. You hereby are awarded the "What winter riding can do" award. Who needs an IBA when you have these? Similar smiles too :D

Well Done Rick!!!

I saw three sport bikers on 494 yesterday afternoon and a guy on a cruiser about 10 minutes later heading north on Cedar.

Still a little early for me, but as the Aussie's say - "Good On Ya, Mate!"

That is 3 of you that got out today. Time to come home I guess. :dogRunN:

I was thinking I might get out this morning since the roads looked pretty good on the way to work last night. I came home to 2 feet of snow in front of the garage door where it slid off the roof. :poop:

I only saw Kyle and I. Who else got out yesterday?

Crimsonaro 03-11-2014 02:32 PM

Jealous.

Can only get out in my dreams. Gravel road is icy/mud soup. Be awhile yet.

Awesome y'all could.

KillerX 03-11-2014 05:25 PM

Ted got out yesterday.

sks700 03-11-2014 06:10 PM

I got out today for about 20 miles. So did Mr Expert. :-)

Not willing to ride to and from work in the melt slop, but I fully plan to get out this weekend. I have Thursday & Friday off.

Good work Rick, Kyle, Lee & Ted.

Mr. Expert 03-11-2014 09:17 PM

Yep couldn't wait no longer put a quick 20 on tonight before grilling out for the first time this year.

Watch for them potholes! The city streets are in worse shape then the country roads.

A motorcyclist died Tuesday from injuries sustained after hitting a pothole on I-394 and being ejected from the motorcycle around 10 p.m.
