70 degrees, dry and sunny. The first good day of 2009 in my neck-of-the-woods. I had a lot of yard work, but it could wait. Out on the Rocket for a wonderfull 200 mile ride. My arse is a bit tender, but my face hurts more from smiling. Great day, great ride, great bike. mY wife of many years gives me a big hug when I get home and tells me how smart I was to ride rather than rake the yard. Great wife.
