Global warming interfering with motorcycle ride

Well, not really.

With recent temps suddenly in the mid 90os, my seasonal allergies have no chance to acclimate and I suffer acutely. Saturday came with the typical watery, itchy eyes, runny nose, and sneezing. Sunday's symptoms included severely swollen eyes. These coupled with the malaise accompanying high doses of antihistamines stifled any weekend 2-wheeled jaunts.

I hoped to "test ride" the Valkyrie to ensure the front brakes, tires, de-smog, valve adjustment, and carb tweaks work without problems. If I can back off on the allergy meds, I'll give it a go this week. Stay tuned.
