Roundtrip to Pittsburgh, PA USA; 219mi, 5hr 10min.
I'm in, Lawrence. Here in Québec, there's a winter tire law, whereby cars have to have winter tires from Dec.1st to March 15th. That means bikes can't be out legally between those dates - unless they put on winter tires... (Yes, they actually exist!) I don't, so this past weekend was my first opportunity to ride, and so I rode about 250 km's yesterday to bring the bike back home from where I store it, at my daughter's place in the country. So, just out for couple of short rides today, to get the cobwebs off both me and the bike. Who am I kidding? The cobwebs were blown off yesterday; today was just because! No particular destination; just anywhere to feel that fabulous motor underneath me. The roads are still too sandy and gritty for all-out enjoyment, but any riding is better than no riding!How about starting a new ongoing Thread titled “Where did YOU go today on your Roadster”, following the style and format of the very popular Thread “What have YOU done to your R today…”, now at >1000 posts?
Much of our individual riding, I’m sure, is short day-riding, or maybe a day or two on the road. Other longer/ multi-day/ interstate/ intercontinental trips are catered for elsewhere here.
Anyway, just a thought – and here am I pretty hot and sweaty and dishevelled, just back from a very early ~190km circuit to the W of Brisbane. The 5.45am start was intended to dodge the promised heat, threatened to reach 39ºC + (that’s 104ºF). When I rolled back into the garage around 9am it was already at 31ºC (88° F).:crying:
While out riding the past few times I’ve been reflecting on the differences and similarities of the pre-LC Roadster and the LC version. I’ll try to cobble together some thoughts when I’ve cooled down!
