Motorcycle Wanderings, General Travel, and a Weird Mix of Other Stuff

A Chilly End to 2016

When I rolled out of bed this morning, I had no real plans for last day of 2016. I kinda-sorta wanted to go for a motorcycle ride, but it was 20 degrees at 6:30 when I let the dogs out. Pretty cold, if you ask me.

It never did warm up, but I decided to ride anyway. There was a 20,000 mile milestone I’d set for myself earlier in the year but hadn’t hit.

It was 42.8 when I left around noon. Thank GOD for heated gear.

Finally Hit 20,000 Miles!

It wasnt a pretty day. And the low to mid 40s is rather chilly on a motorcycle. But it felt good to be out there. Really.

    Good for you for suiting up even with the cold. You made your goal.

    And you’re lucky it warmed up over 20 degrees and no snow.

    Happy New Year to you and Mike and the pooches.

    Awesome that you had no snow and it wasn’t so cold that you talked yourself out of it. Happy New Year.

      I’m really glad there hasn’t been any snow yet. I didn’t have to worry about sand and such on the roads. 🙂

      Happy New Year, Karen.
