First Ride 2010

Last Saturday, my wife and I took a quick trip on our bikes down to check in on her folks and to eat some seafood. Though the ride was uneventful, it fixed attitudes and much needed winter-time-withdrawal-from-bike-riding syndrome.

More to come...

Road conditions around here...

...are pretty bad. A perfect storm of significant winter snow with wild & crazy snow plows (in addition to clearing snow, they also take out curbs, guard rails, road signs, etc.) and tight municipal budgets have created circumstances for worse than usual road conditions. It is important to memorize the location of significant potholes; especially when on two wheels.

Maybe someone can come with a Google map that shows pothole locations?

From the Washington Post, Tuesday March 30, 2010:

Not a hole lot you can do to keep roadways smooth

First ride 2010

It's embarrassing to admit this, but March 24th was the first time I took my motorcycle out of the garage this year.

This has got to change.
