Put the bike away Saturday. Got it all snuggled up for the winter. I will get it out ASAP next spring though.

I should have done that yesterday, but I went out riding instead. I hope we have another warm weekend so that I can wash the grime off the Bonneville, gas it up and stow it away.

Garage
Mine got a whore's bath Saturday, which was the nice warm day down here. Just got the big chunks off with some S-100 and a spray off. I'll detail it this weekend or next in the semi-heated garage.

I'm not calling the season done yet though. We could get another abnormally warm day, and if so I'm going out again!

There were a lot of chores I should have done while it was warm, but riding got precedence. Which I think was wise.

I think we'll get more riding in yet. It was sh!tty up my way saturday, so I played in the shoppe instead. I've racked up around 27,000 miles on the bikes this year, so it wasn't a hardship to play in the shoppe to be honest. However, forecast is sunny and mid 40s this weekend, so I'll likely go out again. Although there was a bit of snow yesterday, there wasn't much and I don't think they threw any salt down yet.



Might ride for lunch somewhere saturday - don't know yet.

Actually, I would like a pickle.

the weekend will be warm-ish.
I have to work most of the weekend, but will have Sunday afternoon free. It is going to be in the 50s.
Is anyone riding on Sunday? If so I would like to meet more people from the forum.

I could be talked into a short ride on Sunday. Let me check my home calendar and I'll get back to you.

I was hoping to ride this weekend as well. Would love to meet some guys from here. Sunday afternoon would work for me - Let me know where to meet. If we have to keep it short, I would recommend the twisties north of Stillwater, but am open for anything.

Saturday I have to take my truck in for service so Sunday looks like the best bet. If we want to go east and north up towards Osceola or Taylors Falls we could meet at the Taste of Scandanavia Bakery around 11:00 a.m. for a bite to eat and them plan a ride from there.
