Iíve often ridden to Lynchburg without bothering to stop when I got there. Often no more than stop in the square to drink my bottle of water. And know where the public restrooms are. Tax revenue paves excellent roads.

We didnít ride together. I found mowing the lawn more attractive than riding 40 MPH with loud pipe HDs.
I definitely get it! My buddy Chad the New HD Guy even scraped a little a couple times on leans to the left. We had an understanding up front-- RIDE YOUR RIDE!! He knew I would jet off in some curvier parts but I'd always slow down after and let him catch up. He did fine. He's even now contemplating longer rides, figuring out luggage arrangements, etc.

Maybe in NORTHERN Ohio. Here in southern, Ohio it's 53 and light rain. I rode at 9 am this morning when it was 46 and overcast.

RaYzerman What's with spring, it's late this year... cooler than it should be, 5C but a stiff breeze, at one time I saw snow for a few minutes blowing straight sideways, I was cold, went right through ya. It's been a long time since I've seen snow in April.
