Re: Motorcycling 2011

I've been on a couple of rides around town this year, but I didn't take any pics.

Re: Motorcycling 2011

Well, welcome to the new year fellow SV rider. I too am an all year round rider. I have many other bikes but my SV is my daily and dependable rider. Over 60k miles and wiped out on it twice. She's still rolling strong. I have a new motor for it and own two of them.

Re: Motorcycling 2011

07/01/2011, 4C (39F), the first day melting since Christmas, I brought Teresa back from the workshop where she got new front rim and rear belt sprocket. Reached 66666km by odo (82k+ irl). Here she is with the new parts:

Re: Motorcycling 2011

I've been commuting the whole week by Teresa, and I'm happy about it.
Temps ranging ~0.5-6C (~33-43F), which is not a big issue for me on this 25km (15.5mi) route. Which was rough that was the Tuesday morning fog I was practically swimming in milk, slowly, with open visor
I'd appreciate the rest of January being this nice, but it's improbable not to have frost. We'll see, I won't ride on ice or snow. Mild frost on dry roads are ok.

Note for self: go check pressure again after my shift (new rim needs extra monitoring).

Re: Motorcycling 2011

I want to ride so bad, guys! I've got the itch but I've just been so busy lately I haven't had the time to do much as far as self-motivated relaxation goes.

I'm looking at an '03 Suzuki Marauder 800 sometime real soon. I need something more comfortable and more real-world for my size. Planning to take a few camping trips this year on a motorcycle and a cruiser is gonna be my choice of transportation for this. Going to buy some luggage and just hit the open road a few times. Swim in creeks, eat spam, camp on the roadside.... you know, grow some chest hair.

Re: Motorcycling 2011

Sounds like fun, except for the eating SPAM part.

Re: Motorcycling 2011

I rode Saturday in 37*F. I wanted to find this creek where I plan to kayak this summer so I went out trying to retrace the route my friend took to get there last year.

I did 116 miles on the bike; mostly highway at 75mph. Honestly I didn't "freeze to death" until I got home and started un-layering all the sudden the chill started thawing off me and I was frozen!!

Found the creek... it was frozen!
