I'm glad someone can ride. It warmed way up today in Akron ohio. The temp went all the way up to 30 degrees! Up from zero that is. Sunny, but not the best road conditions.

I've ridden all week. Monday and Tuesday the morning temps were in the low 20s, but the roads were clear. Thank goodness for First Gear's winter gear. I couldn't ride last week because the temps were down in the teens! Yikers! under 20 in Memphis!

I rode yesterday and today. We are suppose to get to at least 60 today. It was 28 when I left the house this morning, but good gloves and my textile suit did the trick...yesterday I did the heated gear.

I have been able to ride several times in January, but the last week was too icey and I don't ride when there is a chance of ice on the roads.

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

I had to come into work for a few hours today and rode the V. It's 59 right now, and I'm getting ready to head for home - maybe the long way

Hey, do you have any pics of the Drifter? I almost bought one to customize. I am an Indian fan. This was my kit knockoff, sold it last year.

Riding tomorrow, my FIRST ride on my V!!! And good timing too, the high will be 47, highest in a long time.

Well, technically, bumbling around in the development of the person that I bought the bike from was my first ride, but that barely counts.

This evening I received the title and registered my bike right away. Now it is road legal.

you went out in this almost 60 weather? damn, you've got bigger cajones than me, mister. It was getting a little overcast as I was finishing my latte and texting with my life coach, and then I remembered my designer dog moopsie needed a visit with the pet psychic/mobile groomer so I couldn't get away....oh wait, that's 2 counties north of you, contractor.

I hope to install a Powerlet power port and change my oil in the morning and then get out for a while before the rain attacks us again!

Roads still covered with cinders here, 32 tomorrow, I'm going fishing for Hybrid Bass in a power plant lake early in the am, gonna start the v when i get home. We've had over 3 weeks below freezing here, curious how the battery will do, I'm sure it will be fine.
To all of those able to ride, keep em safe!!
