Winter doldrums...go away

Got in a well needed 120 mile ride today, caught a sunset @ Ft. Mountain State Park on the way back to Chattanooga. Mustangs park about as well as they drive, they managed to block most of the overlook parking. Bike still runs well, enjoying it when I can. The heated seats and grips make almost freezing weather tolerable. That MIVV sounds awesome too, I think I'll leave the baffle in, getting old I guess.

I’m doing the same today. Taking advantage of a 75 degree sunny day.

Got to 37 yesterday and today. Too sloppy with the snow melt to ride. Next weekend maybe, could see some 40’s. I am getting really itchy to ride.

We go from 23 to 81 degrees, today was the latter. 265 miles of high speed sweepers, tacos and sight seeing. That Beemer looks like it sounds good, glad you guys got out 'cause it's good for the head.
