Better than me..I got in about 30 miles and took the opportunity to fill the gas tank for the winter. It was 50 degrees here but I found the ride quite chilly. I don't have the gear for it

77 here today.  Rode the Duc 70 miles after I helped Bev put up Xmas lights this morning and later took the oldest son out for oysters and beer, then grilled some burgers with my own green chilis for dinner.

I think some folks a few miles south are still pulling tomatoes.  I might have pulled my garden a little too soon but have plenty of green ones ripening in the closet.  I might have fresh 'maters until Xmas.

But I would still like to be riding down Mt Judea with you.  :bike-037:

Nice.  It hit 70 yesterday afternoon.  Ran an errand on the Road Glide, and then stopped by a neighbor's place where I was offered a test ride on his Tenere 700.





I have a 32 inch inseam and could only touch the soles of my boots on both sides.  Once underway it felt familiar since I previously owned an FZ-07, but I could feet that 21 inch front wheel in the curves.  Nice bike.

That IS a nice bike!  :grin:  I lowered mine 22mm but then installed a saddle with more padding. I'm really enjoying the light feel and steering on this bike. No buyers remorse at all.

That's a really sweet thing to say John, I didn't know you felt that way!  :thumb:  :boozing:

The best part of riding a motorcycle is to tilt the horizon and to lift the front coming out of a corner and to drift the back end powering thru loose dirt and to catch a little air topping a hill and... yeah it's all good!
