Looked at the Forecast. 56. FIFTY SIX. FIVE SIX degrees on Sunday. That's GORGEOUS weather.
Only, there's currently 14 inches of snow on the ground with 2 more inches expected tonight. Ice, refreeze, and gobs of cinders, salt, and sand on the road. Come Sunday, much of the snow will still be there AND there will be all that nasty crap on the road. So I will be reveling in gorgeous temps with no roads to take my bike on. Maybe I'll just put my gear on, sit on it, and make revving noises in the driveway...
Okay. If you're gonna do this, and want the full experience, you gotta do it right. First, go to the store and buy a pack of the cheapest generic cigarettes. When you get home, take them out of the pack and put them in a clear zip lock baggie. Put them in you jacket pocket. More about these later.
Next, carry a box fan outside and sit it on the ground about 8-10 feet in front of your bike. Run the appropriate extension cords.
After getting geared up, turn the fan on .
Now, sit on your bike and verbally rev until your heart is content!
Don't forget to verbally run through the gears pretty hard every once in a while. When you "hit the open road" don't forget to lean.
When you get into "the hills", lean hard every once in a while and remember to make "metal scraping on pavement noise". But it's important not to make that noise in every curve. It's "special" and shouldn't happen in every "curve". Remember to look to your destination when in the curve.
Finally, those generic cigarettes. They're for when the cops show up. When they ask you how much you've been drinking, tell them you haven't been, and offer them the cigarettes.
Oh, I can't speak for everybody else, but personally, I'd pitch in a couple of dollars if you can show us where you get an "excessively loud pipes citation".
