That's perfect riding weather. Was out yesterday riding home from a trip and when we started it was around 45F. I had the liner in my vented jacket for a couple of hours. Really enjoy riding these cool mornings.

I headed out to work yesterday morning and it was 42 degrees. First time I've had my heated gear out this season. By the afternoon it was 67, and no need for heated anything. I, too love this time of year!

Strong winds, rain and flooding here (pity we can't pipe some of this rain to ease your drought). Thank goodness I was on holiday last week riding round the coast of Britain. Not on my Wing outfit, too easy, on my 1930 BSA. Did a thousand miles, the weather was good 17-19C and mostly sunny.
Will now ride my Wing while the Beeza gets some deep maintenance, kick start returns via bungee cord, silencer held on with cable ties etc etc.

Wow, no duct tape needed? I have had those bikes where the comical uses of plastic ties, duct tape, plastic cups, etc., etc., amazing that you can be a "McGyver" when you need to be.

I too went for a nice hundred miler. Temps were 14 then 13 and then 15 on the last leg. That would be about 57 then 55 and last leg 59 degrees. I ditto the love this time of year. I have ridden over a fifteen hundred miles (2400 kms) this month, and will likely get another 500 (800) before the month ends. We host an event this weekend that we call the color run, and we guide some guests through some really pleasurable twisty roads in some of the nicest fall colors in the world. The run is between 350 and 400 kms (around 250 miles) round trip. I was out in the forest roads today and the colors are amazing. Probably the best we have had in many years.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey

Went for 70 mile ride Tuesday and had to keep moving! 104 F can't wait for it to cool off a little more, suppose to be in the 90's starting this week!! It does help if I can get out in the a.m. too.

I’d rather be Riding my Motorcycle thinking about God
Than sitting in church thinking about my Motorcycle
