First Ride of 2012

The temps hit 40 degrees, the sun was out, but the wind was howling. Donned my winter riding gear and hopped on the Versys for a ride. Most of the roads I travelled had names that ended in Ridge or Hollow. Felt good to get out on the bike. Here are some pics.



You have to watch out for animals this time of year. Even the domestic ones.

Damn I hate January!

I as well went out for a spin. It has been windier than it has been cold. I put on my one piece and layered up with my long johns to stay warm. Regardless of wind or temp. It was still a very enjoyable ride.

Cheers!

Took part in the yearly ritual called the Isle of Manhattan Ride. There were a lot of riders this year, had to be nearly 50 and the weather was warm and the roads dry. Of course today it may not make it out of the 30's, but it is January after all...

I wear it around my neck so I can shoot a pic whenever I want.

Went out on the bike today to enjoy my birthday and run some errands. Was great to get out on the bike for a real ride without the legs bothering me and also to enjoy the 80 degree weather out here.

The grass is still green there. Everything here is brown, white or iced up.

I went for a ride too the other day, 95F (35C) and it was lovely! Nothing like a dry, clear, hot Sydney day! 500km including a couple of laps of Mt Panarama in Bathurst had the Versys using 3.99L/100km or 59MPG, pretty good hey?
