60 degs in Ohio how could I NOT ride today?

Middle of winter and it's 60+ I had to get out. It's been a long hard winter for me in many ways and I needed this more than I could believe.

So I air up the tires, unplug the tender check the oil and off I went. Bike ran great the roads are clear of snow ice and salt it's sunny, and blue skies are a gift from above in winter here not to wasted. I was out on the back roads for a couple of hours. And it looks like more of the same for a few days before "Old Man Winter" shows back up.

Ride safe


Or was that look THEN leap?

It was 28 when I left the house this morning and I only saw ONE other bike.
On the way home tons of straight pipes & chrome. 60s of course.

Thursday here was in the upper 60's so I managed to get the bike across a strip of ice just outside the shop door and go for a ride. First ride of 2017. 150 miles around the Black Hills (Custer State Park mainly). It's supposed to be the same today so another ride will be in order. South today I think.
