WOO HOO!! First ride of the year

A return to normal temperatures has finally gotten rid of the snow that has had my bike trapped for the last month. Today was the calm before the multiple storms due over the next week. Figured I better take a ride while I could so today after work I fired up my Versys and hit the back roads.

I woke up early today to brake the slab of ice (I had to use a heavy pickaxe) in front of my house that had my V trapped in the garage. Short ride great to be out.

Even when the snow does melt I have to wait for my dirt road to dry out or freeze. We don't have spring we have mud.

CB, the second picture is gorgeous. Green Ermax is a nice touch. Could have ridden yesterday if it weren't for the salt.

The weather has turned to crap again.
Looks like this will be my only ride in January.

Well, here's a few pictures of riding (east of Phoenix), just to show that sometimes it gets WHITE here, too.

I'm just little over an hour from the Sierras so there are a lot of great rides around. I'll dig through some of my pictures and post a few when I get a chance.
