Wouldn't turn Left

Yesterday on the ride home from the office it was a balmy Carolina day at 63 degrees and bright sun.. It seemed to give my V issues because as I got near my road to turn home, it wouldn't make a sharp turn left. I had to ride for almost another 2.5 hours to come around from the other side and turn in from the right.. Only seems to happen on nice days after I haven't been on it for a week or so.. Strange issue, but I like the work around!

I think it is apparent the fix would be 3.5 hours, and you need to repeat that at least 3 times a week, the in between days it will definitely work at a reduction back to say a hour.

I had the same problem, and now my rides are 3 to 8 hours, except we have 1.5 feet of snow and ice on the road, so my 2015 is on pain killers now

On some days it took me three hours to get home from work........it was six miles but the odometer would show I'd ridden almost a hundred. I always thought it was a bad odometer.

These little problems seem to pop up most on pretty days!

That's how I knew I had fallen in love with riding again. My wife wasn't riding her bike we bought her (in the grand plan I had no plans to ride). I got mad she wasn't using it so got my temp, started riding it and found that each time I went out I always took a longer ride than I had planned. She finally got mad and said " get your own". The rest as they say is history!!

Forty years away from 2 wheel fun. Sure is great to be back smelling the roses!!!

L.. I can't argue that! Here in NC we have weird winter weather.. We have days in the 70's occasionally, and then days where its 10 with a foot of snow on the ground.. Some winters we can ride for a week or two straight, others the bike wont come out for 4 weeks or so.. Just never know!
