Did that work?
That's progress! Now it's 180 degrees from the last ones, but still 90 degrees from horizontal. Maybe tilt your phone to 45 degrees?

Eddy,
I feel the same, but I don't have a 6 yo b-day party to be saved from. I am jonesing to ride, I got my bike back and have not had the chance to ride it yet. Trailered it back home, rolled it into the garage, took the old racks for the BMW bags off, and need to put the Jesses on today.

If you run this way, I might be able to get out for a ride or if nothing else it's the 1/2 way point on the 5/10. I will have fresh coffee & conversation. I have another inmate stopping this afternoon to show me a top case rack for the 650, so I can run far.

I just talked my wife out of church in favor of errands/brunch so I'm headed out till about 1p.

If you don't get any better offers, I'd go out for a spin later. 5/10 loop, chesdin, something. Like to get a look at your new wheels.
Plus by then temps should be up to 39F..

What, when? I'd be fine with something lame like 5/10. Not looking to get muddy/wet. 1pm works as it gives me time to shower and eat and get to wherever.

Calling you in 5 min...No birthday party for me! (I took a little heat) Nonetheless, I'm a free man until 5:00.

Today's ride

I wish I knew you guys wanted to ride today. I geared up at 9:00am and rode up to Morton's. They had a tech day with a class on how to adjust a suspension. Stuart used my bike to start the class since I had new shocks. Yippie. I'm dialed in now. I saw a lot of good stuff up there.

The ride up was interesting however ..... About half way up on I-95 the pavement tuned to "black ice". Cars everywhere off into the ditch. I slowed down to about 40 mph with my 4-way blinkers going and slowly made it through the area. I think it got up to 27F for the ride up.

I don't fly out tomorrow until around 7:00 PM if anyone wants to get out for a ride.

"We" had a COG ride starting out of Gordonsville at the Inwood Restaurant this morning, but I stayed put for that very reason (black ice)... and the cold. I saw enough of that w/e to last me for awhile.
