Nice day for a ride

Did not go far but it was the first ride of 2013 and certainly put a big smile on my face. Roll on spring!

You guys are lucky. It feels like 15 degrees F here with a stiff 30mph wind

I have to move. Does somebody know a nice job making enough money for a family and an MV Agusta???

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

Sadly our Brute's are still in hibernation. It was nice and sunny here in Holland today, but the temperature was just above freezing. My days of frozen fingertips are a thing of the past!!!!!!

You are right about the frozen fingertips as I only have summer gloves. Lots of bikes out in the uk though.... as well as horses and cyclists. It was like you suggest, everyone came out of hibernation.

Thats what I mean! But even worse is that they put every night salt on the roads and that needs to be gone!!

Again spot on, Short ride but by the time I had kitted up and washed the bike afterwards it took half the day. Time well spent though.
