Wake up call

I woke my 78' R100/7 from a long winters nap and some needed service.
We went for a ride to the gas station (had to hit reserve on the way) then around the 15 mile block. What a great first of the season ride. The valves ticking away, the wind rushing past, the great post spline lube shifts, everything about the brief ride was enjoyable. I'm still smiling.

I am so looking forward to the weekend.

Ex Michigan boy here as well, I feel your pain.

Up here in the great Northwest riding season never ends but you do have to keep a summer bike and a winter bike.

I'd love to be in a climate that was warm year round but then there would not be anything to bitch about.

A warm climate would be nice. It's only just cooled down enough in Aus to start riding again.
