I was planning to go along on this one, but my son from CA showed up in town. Guess I won't make it after all. Sure used to be fun when I could go on a ride anytime I chose to. Seems like lately I'm talking about riding a whole lot more than I'm doing any riding.
Think I feel a New Years riding resolution coming!

Guess I'm getting soft that 220 miles in 35 degree temp is hard on a Brotha
maybe next week you guys have fun.
Jokes aside I do realize that all people are not wired the same and acclimated to handle the extremes. Heck I even put my jacket liner in and brought my handlebar mitts out of hibernation last night. They don't do wonders but they do help some. Super easy to install, fit and look good and not so obtrusive like the Hippo Hands. I also have heated grips in a box and plan to install them in the coming week before heading out on my long holiday travels. No scheduled down time due to weather this winter.

They sell on eBay as well.

Sorry I missed. Went to breakfast today with a bunch of HPD riders, down in Katy. Only THEY didn't ride. :doh: Started out at 34f, my favorite riding weather. Hope to make the next few.

It was cold. Going home I took a slower route so stayed warmer even with riding 2 hours after dark. Late getting back as had a delay on FM3090 as I helped another biker get his bike back on the road. He took a high speed spill, slid for ~50 ft and ended up in a drainage ditch with 2 ft of water. Remarkably he wasn't hurt as wearing full leathers and race gear, even neck support integrated into leathers. Expensive bike, BMW S1000RR, was rashed bad from head to toe, lots of damage but it started and he made it home to Katy cold and wet.

Wow, last time through there saw a Harley Davidson in ditch. EMS was there, don't think he was that lucky.

Glad you all got out today. Every time I thought about how you guys were out riding and I started wishing I could have made it too, I would spend a few minutes "refreshing" myself outdoors. That mostly cured my yearnings to be on the street bike. But the temps were about perfect for a good spirited dirt ride. Too bad the forest is still so wet.

No lunch scheduled yesterday, but Pkiser and I found each other Christmas shopping, even at the correct time! Great minds think alike!

Merry Christmas old retired guys, maybe we'll have some lunch runs next year!
