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.

Weather was just right in south Louisiana today. Road from my home town to the dealership in Houma Louisiana. Then I left from there and went to the new dealership in New Orleans. Great ride!
Took a little ride yesterday with a few friends here in south Louisiana. Weather was great. We road about 150 miles. Just had some mods (PCV, Rush header pipes & dyno tuned) done to my bike and it ran great. Hope the weather clears up for the rest of you guys up north so y'all can get out and ride.
Weather was beautiful in south Louisiana. Took off this morning and road to Lafayette La then to Baton Rouge La and came back through New Orleans La. Great ride good food along the way. Got to love it.
What a beautiful day here in South Louisiana. Took off this morning and did a 150 mile round trip. Nice Sunday ride along the Mississippi River Road. This is on my new 2019 Springfield DH (White Smoke).
Beautiful day yesterday in South Louisiana. Took about a 3 hour ride to n some back roads.
South Louisiana this morning was a little chilly but warmed up quick and it was beautiful. A couple of friends and myself did a 205 mile round trip through the back roads of the bayous.
