February & Still Riding

Well, I can hardly believe it but it's February in Northern Virginia and I'm still riding. Got the bike in March, so perhaps I can be a year long rider after all.

This time last year down in Okie land we had 28" of snow on the ground. We havnt even hit an 1" this year and been a unusually warm winter been in the 60's and 70's numerous times this winter but I love it more time to ride, but the down side is I don't want to put my bike in the shop for the valves to be checked and new tires.

Yeah, it's always riding season here in HI.

One of the reasons I moved here. Unfortunately, there is only so many rides and you always end up back where you started.

Garage
This weather is great (well, for the time of the year considering we all can't live in HI ). Took the bike to work Wed, Thurs and Fri, and just got back from a 45 minute ride this AM. It's about 40 degrees in central CT and nice and sunny.
