who's got their bikes out?

Been a long cold winter that just won't quit, but today was finally warm and dry enough to drag the bike out.

I'd been hoping the snow would mostly disappear on it's own, but by yesterday evening it was clear that was going to take more sunny days than I cared to wait for:



Fortunately, I have a snowshovel, and I know how to use it:



On the road by 11, and I managed 150 miles today- not too bad for the first ride of the season. Wish I could take tomorrow off, it's supposed to be even warmer.

I looked at mine in the garage if that counts. I need to drain the gas all out and put in fresh.

I sold one of my all time favorite bikes last weekend (2011 Speed Triple SE) and bought one of my favorite trucks on tuesday (95` F150 4x4 SC EB 351). Whew...It`s supposed to be mid 70`s here on friday and the SVstrom has already been out alot in colder weather and now for the good stuff. Rubber side down....

I'm up to about 525 miles...pretty sure I was the only bike in the parking lot at work today. (There are hundreds of people who work in that building...I dunno what's wrong with the rest of 'em- it wasn't THAT cold or rainy today, and the gusty winds weren't forecast until after most people get home?)

I thought about riding today, but considering how much I've been riding and my tags are a year expired....

I got mine out of storage. I got it out to tear it apart. Going to year all four carbs apart and redo seals and diaphragms so I can sync them properly
