Did you ride today

I thought it would be fun to read about our riding adventures.

I got out today and rode 54 miles on my Yamaha 850XS. The sky was blue and it was a warm 62 degrees afternoon, just right for the first ride of the year. The bike fired right up and ran like a champ no problems after sitting in the garage for 3 months. I buy my gas from a place that has 100% gas, no ethanol. I rode alone as I do most of the time. I have several routes, I call them laps, than I ride. Today's was on the river road run that is nice with a lot of curves and scenic views of the lake. The roads are all two lane and not very much traffic. The posted speed limits are 45 but on my bike 60 feels just right. Some of this is why I love to ride in the country; number of red lights 1, no. of cars I needed to pass 1, cars that passed me 0, cop cars 0, curves in the road many, smiles on my face - all the time. I didn't want to come home but the sun was going down and so was the temperature so I returned to my nest. I can't tell you how great that ride made me feel. Hell, I don't need to , you already know. Get busy riding my brothers and sisters and let's hear about it. Photos would be great too.

Independence pass to be exact. If you are going to be in the area and it’s not winter then that’s a must do motorcycle road. Took the turn and headed up.

Stopped by Twin Lakes to look and snap a couple pictures.
Independence Pass was a must ride for me when living in Colorado. In my top 10 spots to revisit when I retire. Also the inn at Twin Lakes, a former stagecoach stop and brothel among other things.

Yeah, it was 72 down here today. Went on a 120 mile ride on the back roads of SC this afternoon. Felt good to be back in the saddle and in the wind. Haven’t ridden much for about 6 weeks due to a heart attack. Feeling much better and the ride helped a lot

Good to hear your feeling better and back in the saddle
