I washed and polished her up.
Then took her on nice little 135 mile putt.
Now I'm gonna build a fire outside and sit
and drink some wine. See ya'll,
Ride safe!

That sounds like the perfect day.

I did a few mods today, completed the helmet lock relocation to the sissy bar, added my new custom speedo face, washed and polished the bike and then took my son for a ride...another perfect day in Vstar world :)

going custom. waaaaaaaaay custom. totally one-off. i've only ever seen a couple bikes that are close to what i'm getting. will take about 2 weeks to complete and will post many pics once it's done. bike goes into paint in 3.5 hours.

thought about washing my bike today. but didn't. still sun out. maybe later. i'm lazy.
Yeah, I hear it's kinda warm down your way, my folks live by McAllen and Mom likes to remind me of the weather :)mad::mad::mad::mad:), don't want to be washing the bike in that. You should be riding it, instead of sitting inside on the computer.;)

Got up to a toasty 54 today, and was a balmy 26 when I left for work this morning. So what did I do to the bike? Rode it.

You must be digging in the archives tonight, bevo. Thanks for keeping good threads alive.

I parked it today, it was below 40 when I left at oh dark 30 and decided it was a bit to chilly for the 40 or so miles into work. Had it out last night and it was COLD! We'll see how time goes later tonight, I have been meaning to get into a controlled lot and work on slow, controled turns. Taking it into work tomorrow for certain then Saturday we're going to an airshow... Man I hope the wife dosen't get too jealous...LOL

It's funny how we acclimate to our location. This year I started riding when the morning temp was above 20 (on the rare occasions that we didn't have snow), but I've been in northern Wisconsin for 24 years now. I never would have even considered it when I lived in New Jersey where I grew up, that would have been waaayyyy to cold for me then.:eek:

Well like I posted elsewhere, I wiped her down and then rode into work this morning. Now I'm counting the clock for the next 35 minutes to pass so I can ride home. The clock sure slows down when your bike is parked outside at work.
