Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

I could wait no longer. The temperature hit somewhere just above 40f. I brought out the bike, goosebumps spreading up my arms all the while. I went through the pre-run checklist. Put in fresh fuel. Pedaled up to speed, popped the clutch, and lit that ol' gurl up! WOOOHOO! I suddenly realized just how friggin' long this winter had been!
Neighbors waved as I rode by. They smiled at me and my bike Tempus as we cruised by, as though we'd become an early sign of the coming Spring. It was a glorious first ride of the year. Looking forward to many more very soon.

"There is nothing wrong with wanting a motorbike that is an extension of your personal taste and fashion sense; if you must ride somewhere, I say do it with style!"
