I had an interesting afternoon. I got the motorcycle off the storage stand and went for a bike ride down to Hamilton and back! On Wednesday we had 6" - 8" (15 - 20 cm) of snow on the ground. Over the last couple of days the temp has steadily increase till today. It got to 13˚ C at lunch time and the sun was shining. 3 bikes set out on the trip and 2 came back. 1 of the bikes broke down on the way back and we had to pick it up in my wife's mini van. I wish I had my camera with me. Very Happy How often can someone say that they went for a motorcycle ride in mid January in Ontario??????? cheers lol!

Another 12˚C day, but it was wet and the sun didn't come out to play. So with the weather forecast to be back to the normal -1˚C to -5˚C for the next little while. I had to put the bike away and back up on its stand this afternoon. Sad Sad
Awaiting the next stretch of warm weather.

AJ, I'll let you know how comfortable the seat is after the 3rd day.lol! 

Thanks for the kind words Larry.Very Happy  The run from Victoria to Alberta would have been a sweet ride through the mountains.

I can usually do 4-6 hrs in a day, but for 6 or 7 days in a row might be a different story.  I may have to drink the pain away in the evenings.drinking2 lol!
