    Wife and I got out the bikes today, rode to church and then to Cracker Barrel for a fine meal. After that we were off to Caesars Head State Park SC and some great twisty mountain roads! All told, a great day of riding!

    It's a great bike that's why I have kept it so long. I stopped riding for a long time, twenty years, the Yamaha took a long nap inside the back of my store. I was busy raising four kids and running my business. Then in 2010 the big C word came into my life. That's when I decided it was time to get busy living or get busy dying, I chose living and enjoying life which means riding motorcycles. I'm doing fine and so is my bike.

    Rode to the top of the canyon by my house, about 7000ft at top. Got 300 miles on her now! Quite envious of everyone with 60 degree plus weather. Tried to get into the parking lot where everyone unloads their sleds but too much snow for the scout. IMG_0867.JPG

    It was 42 degrees when I rolled the bike out of the garage this Sunday morning. A moderately warm day, but the skies were cloudy and gray and I wasn't at all sure about going. It's been 3 weeks since I've been out for a ride and I'm at the edge of what little sanity I have left. The hubs left for Cleveland this morning, so I was on my own today for a 120 mile ride with the Polar Bears. (No, not the ones that jump in the ocean.) These Polar Bears ride motorcycles, all kinds and brands, every Sunday from late October to early April. It's a different destination each week (some kind of eating establishment) and points are awarded for mileage. Today's destination... the Pic-A-Lilli, in Shamong, NJ.

    As I headed south on Rt. 130 the skies brightened and the temperature warmed. No need to turn the heated gear on, just a little heat on the grips. Billy Joel was serenading me on the ipod and I was in the groove. The snow on the farmlands of southern NJ was melting away and the air smelled of dirt and decomposing hay... Spring is near! The sun began to break out from behind the clouds as I merged onto Rt. 206. I met up with some fellow bears and then we were 3.

    It was turning out to be an awesome day for a ride. I love this bike like no other. It glides through the turns effortlessly... and the power of this engine, well... you know don't you?

    Ah well, an hour-and-a-half of blissful riding later..., I was 2 miles from the destination site. Here come all the Polar Bears. It looks like a good turnout today. Time for some lunch with friends.

    Here are some pics from the parking lot.

    Great story I felt like I was there. What a turnout, the only way we could get so many bikers in one place is to have free beer and a wet t-shirt contest.

    It was 70 in Pittsboro NC today. HAD to get out as well....awesome bike day...so so many bikes on the roads. I only went for a haircut in my Triumph Bonneville T100....while not a Scout i still get compliments on it all the time....guy in the hair cut shop complimented my in it. Took some back roads to get back home...luving in a more rural area makes for some nice exploring trips and I never see the black and whites when im out. Sun shining, warm day...just beatiful change to the colder days! Cant wait to get a second bike so my wife and i can take rides together.

    Hope we see more days like this soon!

    Thanks Taboothe, there are over 500 Polar Bear members from NY, NJ, PA and CT. The sites we ride to from Delaware to CT have to be on there toes to keep up with numbers of riders that arrive to check in between 11:30 am to 1:30 pm. We pretty much over run the place! o_O

    71 wonderfully warm degrees in Raleigh NC. Finally some riding weather at long last! Bikes were everywhere & a good thing it was too, as the rest of the week is pretty much of a wash out. The Big Guzzi got plenty of attention, waves, horn honks etc. The questions, for the most part, consisted of variations of: " What Is That?
