Nice day for a ride all things considered, but it was about 20 degrees cooler than predicted. I was wearing a tex-mesh summer jaclet, so by the time we got to Princeton, I was ready to head back to the urban heat island. Next time I'll know to wear leather.  Embarrassed

First of all, Nate went down, but was able to get back up waytogo
It was good tobit some nice sweeps again, but blind exit curves kill my confidence.

Yes it was much colder than i was prepared for.  The ride back was horrible Evil
I got the shivers and that jacked up my shoulder so I bailed without saying goodbye.
Sorry guys.

Good ride - at least Cher got to have some fun by proxy!  It got so cold I had to turn on the heated grips there for a minute.
I don't get over to right side of the metromess that often so a lot of those were completely new roads for me.  Thanks!

The sun actually came out for a bit as I was winding my way home, it was fairly comfortable for a while.

It was fun (mostly).

spy yellow fairings yet Lisa?  Shocked
Allan did well and asked Nick if he could take them the instant he walked up.  You have him trained accustomed to asking the right questions.

Haha!  I saw that bike yesterday when I was at AMS.  Very nice  waytogo 

I actually think I'm in luck with repair/replacement parts; Stuart has a 749 tucked away in the warehouse that's being parted out so I may be able to get my 999 back on the road the one-stop-shop way.

Very enjoyable ride except when the temp dropped 25 degrees and Nate's misadventure (thank goodness he is OK and now has a shorty clutch lever).
So are these a weekly thing?  Grin
