Had To Remind Myself: My GS Doesn't Suck

So after all of our wierd weather this weekend, Monday comes around and it is a pretty nice day overall. I decide that I'll take the GS "around the block", just because she doesn't get out enough.

Well we get home 215 miles later and I am reminded that MY GS DOESN'T SUCK! Don't care what nachtflug says, never even asked him. Beautiful day for a ride, with the mustard in bloom all along Highway 1. Found at least 1 BMW dealer open for some free coffee and a whiz. Light traffic all day, and great, if a little cool, weather (rather it be cool than hot). And no snow or ice all day!

I actually rode to work all last week cause we hadn't had any snow and the roads were clear. The coldest was -12C (10F) in the morning. My heated grips didn't even warm up and I froze my fingers. Not sure what the windchill is at 70MPH! :-) Bought a pair of Gerbings heated gloves that day at lunch and I'm good to go in anything now, just give me clear roads!
