    weather.com says it'll be 60 degrees on Friday and 61 on Saturday? That's gotta be a typo.

    Not a typo....that's Missouri! It's supposed to be 65 here in SW Mo on Friday. I got up early this AM (about 0530) and went for a walk. The temp was 44 degrees. Now, at 12:55 PM it is 26 degrees.. go figure...

    worked up a sweat

    Nice ride today. I worked the curves a bit considering they are sandy muddy dirty rotten leaf covered at random intervals Usually double suggested speed limit +-10 depending on sight lines and wind, wind was strong. I was sweating a bit, I had the liner in but liner unzipped, Olympia jacket zipped. One little slide on nasty mud on pavement in middle of turn. Pretty good for Dec. Must be close to 70 degrees. Felt real good to be out on 2 wheels. Did some gravel roads, they are soft but not bad at all, 30 to 45 MPH on street tires on an R1150RS, nothing at all scary. Some of the soft rutted sections (thaw after a hard freeze) were entertaining, but easy on the bars, weight on the pegs and let her find her way thru no issue. Of course that was at 30, you with knobbies on a thumper would have been going WFO. But hey, do you not have all the pretty body work and picking yours up is a bit easier. Always a nice adventure taking inappropriate equipment into muddy rutted roads though. Saw a nice 8pt buck, about 200 turkeys, and one really healthy looking red fox.

    I now have a nice fresh tank of gas, for when I ride again.
