Didn't you ride in Big Hair Scrambles back in the '80s?

OK, my bad...note the time I posted...LOL. I know you're probably offended since there is no "hair" to scramble...

Yes, lots of them with Fratzke. Hot pinks and purples were in style too.

I couldn't resist yesterday either. I gave in and rolled the Sportster out for an hour in the afternoon. Rolled over 35,000 miles on the odometer, too. Tomorrow is supposed to be even nicer, but it's snowing here now, so we'll see how that goes.

It really didn't want to start, but after a few rounds on the charger, it decided that it really was nice enough out to go for a little jaunt. I haven't replaced the battery since I bought the bike 5 years ago and I have no Idea how long it was in there before I bought it, so I'm not too upset that the battery is finally starting to show signs of failing.
