I see your 43 miles and raise you 193 miles of wet grime covered roads, moisture on the face shield all day long.

So Mickey how's the January riding going? With a forecast high of 17 degrees today I have no desire to ride not to mention the snow and ice on the roads. It was 4 degrees when I left the house this morning, hope it's warmer down your way.

Hey Jim Jim ridden 3 days out of 6, but Thursday we got about 4" of snow and that's going to keep me off the road until it melts on the private road I live on. Probably Tues or Wed before I can get out. The main roads are rideable but I can't get to them. The cold is not an issue on the ST with good wind protection, heated grips (inside snowmobile mitts) and heated jacket liner.

I did get to take a couple rides on my Honda Rancher ATV with snow blade lol

Default 2017......Ride On

I was able to get out for the third time this month. All was well as I headed out, but when I started to loop back they started brining all of the roads. What a mess! Still felt good to get 80 miles in.

We've had 9 days in a row with rain, managed to ride on 6 of them. 9 for 18 in Jan so far, but not a ton of miles. Just over 350 miles so far.
