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

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!"

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.

I think you can add a few more names to that. One of them has to be the ONE. Rockin Randy, Johnny Ritz and IBVic.

6 inches down and 43 temps for a few more days. Lovin the forecast.

Battery is charged, that bad clutch cable will be fixed on Wednesday. The it's just a matter of getting the ice out of the parking lot here at the apartment, and that's just about done.

Took the Vic out today. Just down the street and back to get it warmed up. The roads around here are horrible. We need a good rain to wash all this crap off the road.

I went Manning to 61 and then left to Prescott, then down WI 35 to Nelson and back across the river to Wabasha. Turned around and came back the same way. Did that yesterday and today, nearly 400 miles, then washed the bike and put it back in it's nice heated parking spot.

After getting my new exhaust and timing wheel installed today I had enough time to put in my first 5 miles today! My baby runs like a raped ape! Can't wait for clean roads!

Got out and rode from Mpls to Waterville to Jordan to Belle Plain, then back to Mpls. Roads I was on are clean and relatively pot hole free. Except the ramp from 169 North to Crosstown East. Thought I was gonna get bucked by a pothole there, but I made it.
