December 1st, 51 degrees, what to do...

I know, jump on the bike and GO RIDING! Weather here in central Indiana was beautiful over the weekend. Ended up riding about 110 miles on Saturday and Sunday. Pretty much the end of it for awhile here, rain/sleet/snow forecast starting mid week. It was nice over the weekend though, stopped to take a break and grab some lunch.

Squeezing in the last rides before the winter comes. You never know which ride will be your last. What kind of Harley are you riding there? It is a Harley right?

I squeeze in a ride any time I can. I rode during December/January/February last year. Always seem to be 40-50* days that pop up somewhere. They weren't long rides, maybe an hour or so.

No it isn't a Harley, it's an '09 Honda Rebel.

We're supposed to get "hit" on Thursday. Starting with some rain, changing over to sleet and then all snow thru Friday. Then cold... Highs in the low/mid 20* range. Supposed to hit 60* tomorrow, but rain. I drained the carb and covered her up in the garage, we're not going anywhere for awhile.

If there is any chance of ice or snow on the roads I do not go out riding. That time of year sand/salt is something to look out for too.

Years ago I left my apartment and rode to work (21 miles, all Interstate) in a temperature of 19*. When I got to work I was so cold I could not even get off the bike. Lucky for me I could park next to the window of the print shop I worked at, and a buddy helped me inside. Probably one of the stupidest things I ever did in my life. It's a wonder I didn't die from hypothermia.
