Oh? I didn't know he was in Bloomington, his location description is vague and I thought he was farther north like in the Plainfield area. Haven't noticed his bike around town, will keep an eye out for him.

It's all relative, to me Plainfield is close to Bloomington And I could be remembering incorrectly since my company has a small office in Bloomington

Yesterday was cold on the ride in to the shop in my mesh jacket with a long sleeve shirt.

This morning was even colder at 60*. So wore my leather jacket for the first time this fall.





​​​​​​​Probably will have many more warm days before it turns cold for a few months...but it is beginning.

Rode it in to work this morning. 42 degrees. :icon_cold:



Glad I had my Gerbing jacket liner.


Dwayne pulled in on his Deluxe right about the same time...he was all bundled up.





We're doing some tests on both bikes later this afternoon.

Yep, it's that time of year when the temps are ping-ponging between warmer and colder.

In the last 10 days I've ridden in temps where the high for the day was 61, then a couple days later it was 97, then a couple of days that it was 58.


In the next 7 days we have lows forecast at 46,44, 53, 37, 35 & 43.

I'll be up in Memphis Thanksgiving. Good hunting weather. One thing about Mid-South, if today's weather doesn't suit you hang around till tomorrow.
