Default What did you do to your Vulcan today?

I gave mine a quick washing filled up with NO ethanol fuel and took a cold fla morning ride to breakfest. Seems for a couple of years now friday morning is the coldest day of the week? Still nice just being in the wind!!

It's been in the mid teens temp wise here in west Texas so I simply looked longingly at 'her' as I walked past to get in the pickup. :-(

Yeah - Rub it in Last week I was in SW FL and it was 80 degrees, but no bike.

Like BBill, has been in the mid teens in the morning and in the 30s most of the day. She is in the shed on the IV (battery tender). Tomorrow it might get to 40. If so, might try the new leathers - for a little while anyway.

I rode it to work and back. What a great ride it was too. I love the commute to and from work now that I have a motorcycle.

Friday was too cold and windy to ride. If the wind dies down I may do a little riding today.

My brother and I have a place in Englewood. Love the WX. Wish I could join the rally. Can't figure how to (without spending gobs of $$) bring the bike down while towing 7000 pounds of boat when I visit.

I made sure the dust was off it and that the covers were still covering all the places they are suppose to LOL. Got to keep my baby dust free as much as possible.
