The weather is finally starting to warm up here! We had temperatures in the high 40sF today, and the sun was shinning bright. It is hard to believe it was –16F just a few days ago. Oh how Minnesota weather changes. It was really beautiful outside. It felt good to get on the motorcycle again after such a long absence.
My girlfriend, Laura, came with. She is still wearing some of my spare riding pants/coat until she finds things that fit her. She found nice Sidi boots online last week for $50!
We started out in a church parking lot while I practiced swerving, braking, and some other basic skills to clean out the cobwebs.
We toured around Saint Paul visiting lots of the park and lakes. The sky was just so blue and it wasn’t very cold. We both wanted to just keep riding! We put nearly 40 miles on in just under two and half hours. We weren’t in any big rush. It was a good day to enjoy the scenery. We both had fun.
There were lots of other people out enjoying the scenery as well.
We even managed to see a couple other riders out there. Two motorcyclists and one scooter. The second motorcyclist waved, the first one below didn’t.
It is nice to see motorcycles out again. I am hoping to ride to work this week as well!
Is your motorcycle ready for Spring? Did you get a ride in this weekend?
PS: I am posting my India trip very soon. The posts have been written and will be appearing on the blog later this week.
