    Did an impromptu ride to get away from the crappy weather

    It was 35F when I left and 80+ in TN

    I was a great ride, but a tough slog and at times I questioned my sanity:evil

    I think the bike is out on Thursday. We get snow on the 26th and 27th butitwill begone fast. I was able to push it in late Fall but I don't have the yarbles to start the season freezing likeI did in November. New intake, mapping and slip-ons on the HD are calling me out.

    Hmph. Supposed to snow again n Calgary on Friday then warm up afterwards. Think I will put the battery back in today with the hopes of sneaking a quick ride soon... avoiding all the road gravel... till I can get to some real gravel!

    (On the news last night, a reporter said the City of Calgary dropped the equivalent of "taking the roof off the Saddledome and filling it with pea size gravel" this winter... now they will start to clean it up and it will take until the first week of July to do so - probably in time for another snow storm! - but the Volker Stevin (?) people responsible for the highways have already started clearing major intersections.)

    Felt so good to get back out on the bike this past weekend. Has been the longest winter of no riding breaks that I can recall in my 31 yrs of motorcycling in the Calgary area.

    "31 yrs of motorcycling in the Calgary area" = about 155 rideable months... or 12.9 years!

    That's a worse conversion rate than "dog years"! :lol3

    Glad I could brighten your day. :lol3

    Sad but true about Calgary weather though... it is a whiteout here again today... "10 - 20 cm of snow expected by mid-Friday morning through Canmore and the Foothills..."

    GRRRR. I have to drive to Spokane tomorrow morning... looks like I will take the #2 south through Fernie now... :huh
