Wink chilly windy...

MH,

Slept in, did chores, cooked a fab breakfast and then took the Guzzi for a ride. An air pressure check revealed five pounds down. Made an error: forgot my glove liners. It is chilly and windy and my hands started cramping a bit. Tomorrow I will get into the fall gear mode and also add my jacket liner. Saw just one other rider out today, and I only was out an hour or so. The flags are straight out pointed south. It takes me a while to adjust to cooler weather riding. Overall we are blessed to be able to ride year round. My brother in Billings, MT said it is 33F, and snowing.
