I had my "new" 08 Wing out once so far and am looking forward to more rides. However, in MN last night we got almost a foot of the white fluffy stuff. The next few days are forecasted to be warmer and maybe this will melt away around June or so. I can only hope so because I'm getting the itch to ride.

I got just over 12 inches of snow last night. I think I have to do one more mod to my silverwing . Get studded snow tires for my silverwing .

I know what you mean. I keep wondering if winter will end before next winter starts.

Hope to see you on the road this season. Maybe a meet up somewhere for coffee will be in order. I'm retired so my schedule is pretty much open.

You guys North of the Cities got hammered with this last snow - looked like North Branch had 20 plus. Only 40 miles South from North Branch there was zero snow on the ground - this time in Apple Valley we lucked out. Hope to ride on Tuesday but now the forecast seems to be changing and not for the better. Maybe this year we won't get any May snowstorms!!!

Ride Safe,
Rick V

First ride of this season this morning. The roads in the city are still gritty and sandy at intersections, but the highway was clean. I only went out for 15 minutes, but it felt good, despite the cold. My driveway was 42F, the open road was 38F. It's a late start to the season up here, but better late than never.

We've had a nice season in Colorado - even up in the lower elevation mountains.  No snow problems here!

Great picture!

Glad some of the snow-bound are at last able to get out and about.  Smile
