Washed the bike down with soap, water, brush and garden hose as soon as I got home. Deicer is insidious. The wet slush deicer mix probably forced it into all those hard to reach places like the caliper pots, (pistons).

Saw the pics before they disappeared. Retired a little over two years ago. Figure I've got 15+/- years of riding left. Not interested in backing up the inevitable so I probably won't be riding if roads & weather are like it was in these pics.

So... nobody is posting a proper ride. Weather looks ok.

I'm thinking of this...
