It got up to 30 today, with freezing rain, sleet and snow, and then a temperature plunge forecast for the next 4 or 5 days, so I figured it was as good as it was gonna get for a while. Took the Sportster out to lunch and made it a 25 mile ride, dodged a few patches of ice, but pretty uneventful otherwise.

Sunny yesterday so I rode the board tracker down to the local H-D dealer. Not all that far but enough to let it stretch it's legs a little.
It's always an hour plus fun ride, 10 minutes each way and 45 minutes to get out of the parking lot after answering questions and letting folks take its picture.
