Anyone Ride today?

I had some errands to do around the town. So I bundled up for this cold weather riding and was off on my 1300. About half way around I realized that I had on way to many cloths, Heck it must have gotten close to 60 today. Traffic wasn't to bad, most of the cars stopped for the red lights today. Got the bags full and came home. So it was a good day for tripping around on the bike. If it's nice tomorrow I'll do it again.

Last ride of 2011

I did too. It was only about 40*, and overcast, but I still managed about 110 miles. Not too bad for New Year's Eve in Mid-West Ohio.

It was such a nice day today, so i jumped my bike off and took it out for a little joyride, took it about a mile and i think i hit reserve so i had to jump off my dead battery on the side of the road with the jumper box i carry and basically just sighed and came home.

I had hoped to get a ride in. Here in Pittsburgh it was warm enough but the 40 MPH winds scared me off.
