Well, I broke the Ol' T-Dub out yesterday and took for for an hour long ride through the town and out into the countryside of East Central Illinois.

I had to jump a snow and ice covered blockage in my yard but got that done and was off for a nice ride.

So many folks out looking at me as I carved the corners and grabbed some freshly revealed asphalt.

WoW! I missed that bike.

Believe me if wasn't so heavily invested in our company I'd be there in a heart beat.

I'm with ya T-Dub Ken, I've got the itch to go rid'in too. BAD, real BAD.




It ain't 80 degrees here, and I didn't ride for an hour, but I did go past my mailbox at the end of the driveway for the first time this year. Idaho's chief meteoroligist first alert weather forcaster, forcasted a 50 sump'in temperature day. Was on the edge of going on a longer ride, but I have to leave for work before the "heat of the day" sets in...So, I rode past the mailbox (3/4 mi from house), down the lane (another 3/4 mi), took a left down the country road for 1/2 mi, then a right down a road for another mile. They should have a deadend sign posted. So, I turned and headed back home. I know, big ride eh? Well, if the road hadn't been a deadend I would have gone farther.



And for the folks out looking at me...a car past by me when I was sit'in at the stop sign, and the couple just stared at me, with a smile coming to the ladies face just before going out of sight. Now, I didn't really think it was that strange for a motorcycle to be out-and-about, cause I see the Harley riders have been out a lot. Then it dawned on me, they ain't looking at me, they look'in at Georgie rid'in on back. Oh, I get i t!




Think positive Ken, it's get'in warmer!

I went for a ride today in the wind and rain. It was cold as hell, but I couldn't stop smiling

I rode a little both days this weekend. People were giving me odd looks even though it was warm enough to ride with light gloves and a sweatshirt! The great big grin on my face could have been why they were staring....

I flew over Idaho back in early December.

It was covered in snow.

That's the way it's looked here for months too.

It's melting now but slowly and soaking in the ground.

The farmers will like that moisture come Spring.

I will like a nice rain in a few weeks to wash this nasty

road salt off the roads.

Ride safe and enjoy the warmer weather.

KC
