I've done a bunch of riding in cold, pouring rain. Every time I had to stop at a stop light I put my hands over the engine to warm up....

Mounted my new Chromed slanthead on my new chromed Micargi today. Gotta change to the 1.195 tires to get outta the chain's way. Don't care for the whitewalls anyway.

I moved into town this week, so I rode "The White Lady" 9 miles in to my new place. Commute to work will be only 3 miles with 25mph speed limits. It'll be shorter, safer and easier ride, compared to 35-40mph highway sprints from the old place.
I chained my bike onto the balcony yesterday; it rained all last night and the bike got pretty wet. So I brought it in and wiped it down. It sucked that it rained all day today. Hopefully, it'll clear up, so I can ride to work tomorrow.

Rush hour traffic is pretty hectic at a couple blocks, but I can hop onto the sidewalk at those locations.

Yesterday, (Sunday) Went looking for a warehouse to rent. Bunch of old factorys to be had.
Rode around the north end. Kinda depressing area but cheap and great place for a motorized bicycle factory/store/shop. Test rides and such. But got board and rode around downtown. Really cool. No traffic aside from some cabs and emergency trucks & cars. Really nice ride. Re-routed speedo cable and it works now. Tested against GPS and is spot on. Went back to blowbag muffler alone just for looks and funny. Engine needs to be hotter. Might remove some of the cooling fins. Heat shield is working in reverse and retaining heat which is good. Finalized plans in head for pusher using a 4HP (I can have 5 here) Lifan engine. $129 @ Home depot. Will start building oven to powdercoat frames, parts etc ASAP.
This is the best hobby ever!
