Default I want to ride so bad!

I'm in the shop working out the kinks on the old girl, and I want to mock her up and run off so bad. It's too early to have the "fever"...

Anyone else going mad yet?

There is seriously only one good thing about living in the desert... I'm still riding, and plan to through the winter. It's my first year out here and it really is the only thing I like about being out here... There's something about riding in 70 weather in December. I definitely know what you're going through as I moved from Maine. The urge to ride when the weather won't let you is overbearing. May the warm weather come quickly wherever you may be!!!

I get to ride tomorrow...to the shop to have the RR recall work done. But hey, at least they're doing it for free after I'd already replaced it on my own with a CBR RR.

I am a year rounder. I won't ride if there is snow or ice on the roads, but if the temp is more than zero, I will ride.

My problem is not so much the cold here in nj but the daylight. It gets dark to early. By the time I get home the sun is down and every cager is on the road trying to get home during rush hour. Its not even safe to leave my drive way. I will squeeze in a few weekend rides during the winter usually when the urge becomes to much to take.
