Anyone riding lately?

I got mine out on Saturday for a quick (as in short) ride to get the gas moving and scrub some nubs off the Pilot Road 5's. It was good to get some seat time!
Back to the rains and wet roads for a few more days...

It has been a couple of weeks since I last rode. Hopefully it will dry up enough to get out again soon.

Yup. I ride just about every day.

405 congestion sucks.

ice and temps in the teens and 20s has stopped even me. Was almost 40 today and windy, but to go to work in the dark and come home in the dark just did not seem like it would be worth it. DO have my ZX-10 back together so that may see the next sunny dry day over 30 and off work.

Got out on my 9T today between rain fronts. Testing a new tune and rebalanced front wheel (thanks, Sean).

Kind of. I put my rain gear on. Sit on my bike in the garage. While the samurai warms up. Some day I'll find all the leaks.

Been riding my commuter (scooter) almost daily. Pretty hard to not rub it in that a scooter is the only bike in the motorcycle parking when it is nasty out. Got to say after having one (2015 Yamaha TMAX 520) with the great rain protection and the auto trani when in stop and go traffic, it is my 'go to' for commuting. That used to be my 1000 VStrom, but arthritis and clutch work in bad traffic is not as easy as it used to be...

Daily rider here! I can't say it's all that enjoyable, but it's still better than spending a small fortune on parking. $2/day vs $10/day garage parking makes it a no brainer.

Daily rider/commuter here, too. Not that fun sometimes, but the convenience, maneuverability, and even some fun make it alright. Most of the time.
