Looks like hibernation is over and the riders are waking back up! We had a mild winter here in central TX, so riding was doable with only my heavy leather jacket (well, I wore pants too...). This morning it was about 55F, so a little chilly in the Tourmaster mesh, but this afternoon it was in the 80s and perfect riding. Since I only worked 12 hrs today, I had time for a nice "long way home" ride.

I grew up in Buffalo, NY and remember that the first barbeque of the spring season was an "event" so I guess the first good day of riding is much the same for some of us.

It's good to see some action on the forum again, we have a good bunch here! Well mannered, helpful, and mature ( in the best sense of the term). Too many forums these days are not!

I'm thinking about bark-busters, for the same reason, so I'd augment the stock mirrors to stick out a bit further for a wider (non-shoulder) view behind me. Bar-end mirrors could be a thing, if I decide against the bark-busters, though. Still on the fence about that.



A Yoshimura Alpha 'street series' exhaust is definitely on the list. Lighter weight (by about 22 lbs or so) and a really sweet sound that isn't too loud.



Let's see...a fender eliminator to clean up the looks, and fender extenders both front and rear, to keep the underside from getting too gunked up. Also on the list are engine case guards, and frame sliders.



And then it's on to luggage... Oi.

The Beautiful Bride will be riding with me on occasion, so that'll bear some thought...


The list looks on point brother.
You should look into Kriega luggage. I have a few pieces of there gear and absolutely love. They are built to last. Been running the same book bag for 6 years everyday to work and not a single rip. They have lots of options.

55! It was 45 here in California this morning and the ride was cold to work. I only wore a textile jacket and yes pants. Like you said it warmed up to about 75 this afternoon. I didn’t do my normal 12 hour shift like you did so I absolutely took the long way home. Don’t tell the wife . Should be nice weather this weekend so maybe I’ll crash the Cars and Coffee in my town and make it Bikes and Coffee. It’s always a good time.
As far as the forum goes. I think everyone is well mannered and helpful. I do wish it was a little more Livelier at times. But the few that are on at times make it interesting.

I'm still waiting for the ground to dry up to get the bike out. We have had a long hard winter here in New Brunswick Canada and they are still calling for a little snow later this week. So I guess I'm still in hibernation mode.
