I sat on mine and backed it up about 3 feet in my garage... Other than that, not much of a ride. YUP! It's Springtime in Minnesota!

I did several RTW trips over the past few weeks. Each one about an hour long. On Youtube, that is !!!! I was hoping to be riding by now: but the weather here has other surprises. And I got a bout of appendicitis, all taken care of ; another week of recovery left and will be able to resume full duties. I will be ok to push the bike on my own, but the weather still looks stormy until the end of April.
Thank goodness the fishing season starts tomorrow, and will be a welcome distraction until the weather turns.
Jay.

Summer showed up here in eastern PA. for 2 days. 82-84 Friday and Saturday.
Today 236 miles. It's been a long winter. It's about time.
New rear tire working great. SW ran good burning off 4 month old gas 54 mpg.

Everybody was out riding. Sunday back to colder temps and rain. Had to take advantage of what mother nature gave me.

Saturday I rode into Sun City, AZ to meet a friend (about 80 miles round trip). When there he wanted me to ride his 650 Burgman to a dealership for appraisal (he is considering trading it in). That was about 22 miles round-trip. Great day for a ride for sure!!!

Note: this is the second time I have ridden a 650 Burgie, and while it is fairly quiet and powerful (engine is quiet but transmission makes weird noises) I would NOT trade my SWing for one... Just saying.

I got 361 miles in today, riding from P&O Ferries Europoort Terminal, Rotterdam, Holland to Bad Lauterberg im Harz, Lower Saxony, Germany. Weather fine and dry all day, so I was comfortable in my unlined Klim Overland suit with just a Sympatex base layer under it. Wearing my Schuberth E1 for it's first long trip too.

Just two short stops for fuel and small coffee, and no aches and pains either.

Now that is a big ride Meldrew. I seldom do less than 100 mls on my runs. Saturday was 127. Sunday was 140mls but, I got caught in a deluge in the afternoon on the way home, no problem if your dressed for it.

I got 250 miles or so in riding mainly autobahn from Bad Lauterburg in the Harz, to Aachen on the border with Holland and Belgium. The ride was hot as to be expected in the current weather conditions and even when I was sweating like a glass blowers arse, I haven't been tempted to go commando like Mr G.

The big news that might interest Canadian members is that Poutine has come to Germany, I had a very fine Classic Quebec Poutine in the new Frittenwork restaurant in the centre of Aachen. It was that good I'll probably go back today and have Montreal Style Poutine, and tomorrow BBQ Pulled Pork Poutine, or Pulled Honey Chicken Poutine.

The native Aacheners or 'Ochers' seem to be converts too. www.frittenwerk.com



Thank you Canada. Smile

( If Mr Sylar is puzzled, you'd know it as the cheese n' chips n' gravy you ate after your shift int' mill over in Lancashire) Smile
