It hit 55f here today, which is blazing hot for January in Michigan. I didn't get a chance to get out until after dark, but still rode about 20 miles and it was still warm out. It was my first real ride on it since doing a 15/50 sprocket swap, cruising at 55mph was no problem. I didn't try going faster since it was dark and I have a long history of drilling deer.



Tomorrow is supposed to be 60f, I plan on getting a couple of hours in.

I took advantage of the nice weather to wash mine, it was looking pretty rough from riding in all the snow and slush. Maybe tomorrow morning before it cools down again?

I rode my Bandit yesterday
... Guess that doesn't count. My TW is 2 1/2 hours away at the mountain house..... I may go riding up there on Sunday depending on the weather.

Were do you live. I'm from the gobles area. About 20 west of kazoo. OMM.
A little west of Battle Creek. In the summers I live in the sticks up north around Kalkaska/Fife Lake. That's where I do most of my TW riding.



I worked with some guys from the Gobles area and know it a little. Many of my road bike cruises are on the back roads in your direction and towards Lake Michigan.

Saugatuck? lol. You know I'm joking. I actually do hang out there though.



I spend a lot of time up north in the summer, mainly in that area between Gaylord/Grayling/Kalkaska. My folks live up there, I can be on state land within a minute from their house. We've always taken the Jeep and will usually do 100 miles in a weekend, but now I'll be taking that and our bikes.

Been riding the whole time, but it was warm enough out today to also get a trickle charger installed for when it drops temp again, wash the bike, replace grips, and do a chain adjustment.

Considering I don't have a garage... the temp was nice.

Had a good ride today here in Indiana. Started out with 4 t-dubs and ended up with 3 at the end of the day. We made it to the big tunnel again. It was probably 45 degree's in the tunnel it was cool.
