Let not your heart be troubled. That photo was taken 5 minutes after unloading the bikes.

Who rode today? Does the weather get any better than 68 after a winter like this?

Look like your bike needs to go on a diet for spring riding.

Stu, it's high time you went on an orange diet. More citrus......I recommend the Austrian variety.

Pirates often get scurvy and need the vitamin C.

I'm leaning back the BMW way, though. Unless the new Triumph shop decides to earn the sale (doubtful)

Don't post in this section much, from Winfield, MO but the military has taken me away. I know the weather is great there today but it is also very sad for me and for a few people. Along with the great weather many of you got to ride and enjoy your day but today my cousin and another died in a horrible accident when a bus pulled out in front of their group, they weren't advriders, but they were motorcyclists. Two have perished and another is in critical condition. Be safe!

I am sorry for your loss. Take comfort in the fact they went out doing something they loved.

I heard about the accident this morning going to work, I'm not to far from where this happened.

I'm about ready to give up street riding after over 30 years of 2 wheeled travel.

Be safe out there!

Glen,
I hadn't heard about this one, but I've had similar thoughts. Lost a very good friend and riding buddy last week.
John Sour (SourJohn on AdvRider) was hit by a car while riding, and passed a few days later.
He and I had ridden together many many times weekends and week long rides, camped, laughed, and told stories together for several years.
Sure makes you think. I spend a lot of time on the roads. Shoot, to go out and ride the "creek roads" I've got to ride 100+ miles of blacktop.
Sad times.
