Feeling sad that I have not done anything with my bike today. Wasted a day.:frown::thumbsdown:
Well.........which of the 31 places did you get your V-Day meal? Enquiring minds want to know!! (or hungry stomach wants to know in my case.)Took a ride for a free meal. First time I have ever taken advantage of Veteran's day. 31 different places I could have gone. Came home before it got dark or cold. Wintery mix tomorrow
Hadji had no back wall?Had to sign a document yesterday. Predicted high of 38 degrees at 3 PM. I left at 12 and had a nice back roads ride. The new Carhartt Extremes bibs did really well. hands and feet got a little cold,but core temp helped warm them up.I stayed pretty warm for 40 miles one way...
Stopped at a Hadgi place to pee and fill up and Hadgi did not have public restrooms. I asked him if he knew of a gas station that had them. Told him that I needed fuel and coffee and stuff ,but I never bought at places that had no toilet... It is getting so that a guy has to carry a portable urinal.
Anyway a great ride and I managed to not hit anything but small towns on the way. And the document I delivered will result in a nice little payday
Yeah, I think I need to get one. Local Wal-Mart has the Battery Tender Jr and the Battery Tender Pro. Do you think the Jr. would be sufficient for my purposes? I just have the one bike. Do you know if the pigtails that you leave on the bike come with the Tender or do you have to buy separately? I don't want to have to take the seat off all the time.If you use a battery tender when your not riding it, batteries can last pretty long. I have the original cheap batteries in our snowmobiles, and they're going on 8 years old. I do have plans to replace them with sealed ones before the season starts though. My new motorcycle came with a sealed battery, which I thought was nice.
http://www.compacc.com/p/Sliders-Cold-Pro-Kevlar-Armored-Gloves Might give these a try. I just got some, and for the money, I think they are pretty good. Go at least a size larger than usual. I went 2 sizes larger to get the length about right.Speaking of gloves, I rode yesterday with some non-motorcycle winter gloves that cost all of about $15. My hands stayed warm as toast, unlike my regular winter leather riding gloves, which hardly do the job for me once the temps get below about 50. But with a grandson sleeping in the den, where my gloves were put away, I grabbed the cheapy shovel-the-snow old gloves for my ride. It makes me realize that there are gloves that can keep my hands warm, but these offer little or no protection being nylon on the outside and some puffy stuff inside. Now I need to find some really warm gloves that are covered in leather to offer both warmth and road rash protection. Open to suggestions.
Good Grief, Man!! If you have hands like steam shovels, there is not help for ya!!! :tongue:That is all well and good but they only come in 3X. No way could I go a size or two larger when my normal glove size is 4X. My present winter gloves are likely to be replaced by some good snow shoveling gloves. At least in those gloves I can sometimes find ones that fit.
It got up over 40 here today so naturally I rode to my work site.
That bike gives me a funny feeling in my stomach........:71baldboy:
That sounds like something I would do!Accidentally stole gas. Well not really. Been putting non ethanol gas in my bike recently and the closet station doesn't have a card reader on the pump. You have to go inside, have them turn it on then go back inside and pay. I haven't had to pay after pumping in 10 years and forgot to go in and pay. Realized it about a mile down the road and hauled ass back to give them money. Luckily he hadn't called the cops yet, only the owner that told him to give me 24 hours.

I'm sure it is just a shadow, but it looks like your friend's kickstand is down in that second picture.Followed my roommate on his first foray onto the mean streets of Florida. He did pretty good. Was only about 15 miles all together.
Cell phone pics are hard while riding, selfies are easier.
