I took my new '12 GS for a spin the other day, and it was a beautiful 83 degrees here in SoCal. The Ortega Highway was a great ride (as usual). Now I can't decide whether to take my RT or the GS to the Rally in July!

Aw, you guys...
-12C here yesterday, milder today, but ...
Another month, then riding...
No wait, going to Las Vegas and San Francisco for wife's birthday, so maybe April...
Well, you should enjoy even if some of us can't.
I rode home from work on the morning of 15 February, after a night shift... it was 12 degrees. Everything heated was on during the one hour trip.
.....oh and everybody at work thought I was crazy .
Experience IS NOT the best teacher! Someone else's experience is the best teacher.
They could start a new award category..." Most bikes brought by one rider" ...!!!
Actually I am just jealous and board. Need to ride. Its about 20F here this AM. That alone would not prohibit a nice wake up ride but the local authority seems to have an excess of "salt ". Every time the weatherman mentions the "S" word they dump another inch or two of salt on the road. I prefer the snow. They must be getting kickbacks from the salt people.
Wish I was there! Enjoy.

Have Bike - Will Ride
I too took RT for a ride the other day. About 30F but very sunny. No heated gear needed as this is the best cold weather bike with the full fairing and heated grips. I'm supposed to do an all night road rally this evening, the Crotona Midnight Run and unless it rains will take the RT (Bavarian Bitch).

... to farkeling, not riding, not in -9C weather.
Added Touratech bar risers and RAM mount ball with long bolts (B-367U - used the longest bolt and think I might get a longer one still). Next is Touratech foot enlarger for the sidestand. Have it and will do it tomorrow.
Riding - not for a while.
