    If it's this warm already (80 here in Ky), what do you think summer's going to be like? Another "Bloomsburg Burner"?
    Thank a teacher if you can read this, thank a veteran that it's in English.

    Well, the calendar may not say it's officially spring yet but there's one fact that says it is - every dang bug on the Eastern Shore of Maryland committed suicide on my K16GT yesterday as I rode through farming country.

    Geese have been north of the 49th for a week or so now. Put 60 miles or so on the R100 on Monday. Even with a 30 mph crosswind it felt great!

    How strange is this??? Been riding all this week in and around Fargo... beat my previous start record by 4 days -- PLUS -- No flooding on the Red River this year.

    Got out for my first ride of the season today. Temp creeped above freezing, I waited a couple of hours and set out. Gaaawwwd I missed it!
    Tomorrow is supposed to pass 20c (low 70s)...guess what I'll be doing.
    I will have to take the kids along tomorrow to give my sweetheart the break she gave me today!

    speed safely!

    It is quite apparent that the country is well into a general, long term warming trend; over 2200 high temperature records [ for the day ] were set Thursday the 15th of March across the USA.
    Not * one * cold snap yet in Colorado this season
    My house sits at 9740' above Telluride Colorado and I rode to Moab Ut Jan 6th 2012 and Wednesday March 16th, Both days the road were dry, the whole way. Unheard of dates for departures in the last 34 years I've lived here. Good news for riders up north and for riders down south, they may have to plan to go north sooner to get out of the heat.
    We can't do much about the weather so I say LETS RIDE!

    Well, I guess we're paying-back for the warm weather out here this winter. It's only been in the low 40s thru mid 50s for the past two weeks here on the central coast of California. It's been raining, with hail, this weekend.

    Ride 'em if you've gottem'!
