Ron you are a lucky man to be enjoying those temps. 23 seems like a pipe dream here. In the Peg.
Just thankful we didn't get the 40 cm that fell just northwest of us.
Get well bud. Looking forward to short visit soon.

I am glad to hear some bikes got out, but looks like the winter will be back for a bit. What an unbelievable year. I wonder what May will be like......wow

Great to hear that you are up and around, even just a little bit. A miracle that you are still with us on this great Earth.

28'C here in Cali

I had a great visit with OldRookie tonight. So nice of him to visit, and he dropped me off a bike mag!

Let know if you are ever up, John!

Ron, great to hear you making good progress.
It was 0c here most of the day, climbing up to 4c around 6pm. Went for a ride with Janis, but short lived as the temp. dropped quickly.
Hope to get the vintage bikes out on the weekend.
See ya later on in the month.

Took the little Honda S65 out for a ride last night. Sometimes getting back to your riding roots just puts a smile on your face. Even though many new scooters can leave me in their dust, they cannot match the smile factor of puttering around on a 46 year memory machine.

Good timing Ron! Hopefully by then the weather will be warmer and we will be over this disaster of a Spring. There is about 5-6 inches of new snow on my deck right now.
