first ride of the year

spring

w00t!!! the weather here in cleveland took the day off just as i did.

it was uncharacteristically warm and dry (sunny and 60 deg f) today so i thought it’d be a good time dust off the cobwebs and rouse the bike from its winter hibernation. i’ve had the bike on a battery tender and it fired right up. let it warm up a few min while donning my gear and made off down the street to the gas station for petrol and air for the tires. since the 675 doesn’t have a plate yet, i thought it’d be wise to make the ride brief and returned back home. the roads are slippery with salt but it felt good to be back on the bike although my riding skills are a little rusty.

i guess this was just a little tease as spring is still a month or two away but i’ll takewhat i can get. tomorrow it’s back to normal with snow in the forecast. tick-tock…
