Back in the saddle again!

My two weeks are passed and I'm back in the saddle again! I did my running around this morning and then a nice long ride. Felt great no pain (other than at the gas pump, $3.99 a gallion!)

I did notice that fall's on the way as it was 45 when I pulled out to get a hair cut at 7:30. Never did much over 72. Not many bikes on the road as you'll think with the Warm Weather Rides packing it in. My heated jacket and glover liners are dead so I gotta buy a new ones, girlfriends dog had them for a snack last year

I finely got the suspension dialed in pretty close to what I want. Handling is reasonable and the ride's not too bad, maybe a bit harsh but I don;t see else I can do without throwing buckets of money at it. I did contact Progressive and they said The Versys is in R&D. So maybe they'll bring out springs and hopefully a shock soon. The fork I can work with by changing oil and a spring upgrade.

Or was that look THEN leap?

$1.339 per Liter here, which works out to $5.06 US gallon....
(And the US buys a LOT of their petoleum from Canada....)
