winter blahs...

MH,

I got a couple great fast, long rides in over the Christmas break. But, it has been a week since I was on the Goose and I got a bad case of the winter blahs. Hopefully next weekend will dry out and warm up. Riding in this dismal weather does not turn my crank.

Whine over.

Rode out to Katy to the No Label Brewery with Txsandman last Saturday and it was a bit nippy, but tolerable. Just need to layer up and wear knee guards which help immensely deflecting the cold. Below 45*, and winds over 25 mph, count me out...
This Sunday is looking choice

Give me a heads up if you do end up going for a ride. Are you planning a C.R.R. run again? I have not been that way in a while, although I may not start out until early afternoon when it will be a little warmer..

All,

Finally got the Guzzi out this afternoon after dealing with various other matters. Wow, 90 to Rosenberg, 762 area and 99 had a lot of bikes out! , I needed that. Hopefully next weekend will also be good. It is lovely to have the sun shine and flick the V7 around Harleys!
