  my new bike cover came while I was gone  Covers the raider  even with my 18" shield  . Suppose  to work up to 108" over all and 60" height .  .
    Winter coming and it won't fit in house . I tried  ;D

Went for a ride this morning up to a state park that has a nice twisty closed loop with lots of great views. Left at 8am, 34 degrees. Got all the way up to 36 by the time I got home. Toasty! Turned out the park road was closed due to fallen trees from the hurricane. Still put another 80 miles on the odometer and had a really good morning! (Mental note - heated gloves soon!)

Wifey and I rode to Bonefish Grille for some killer food tonight!
I go too far and too fast to ride a Harley! If you see my bike on a trailer call 911. A Corbin fairing, bags, heated seat, V-Rail and back rest, PC3, PR Air Kit, V&H BR, 5" Chopper's Surplus Z Bars, DWG sound system, Indian front fender, mucho Kuryakyn and Yammy bling,

Rode for 15 minutes to test out all the maintenance I did today.  Hoping to ride all week in to work and into the weekend!  Maybe even make the 3rd Annual Run to the Falls!

Good idea but I will be riding 1 or 2 days a week  except in really bad weather . Bar thing ,would get to be a bit of a pain.  2 in the house  is enough I guess . Maybe over summer I'll put in a sliding door . Naw, bad idea . Money could be used to fix up the bike. Bike 1st ? RIGHT!!

Go to any Home Depot or Lowe’s Home Improvement Center, and you’ll find some frisbee like discs for sliding furniture around on the floor and on carpets. Get one about 6” in diameter, and roll the front wheel inside over the threshold first, then stop it on top of the sliding disc. Turn the bars full one way and just push it on in.

I didn't ride at all Saturday and then decided to go to the grocery store late yesterday afternoon.  I got on my Raider and the weather was absolutely gorgeous, so instead of hitting the store down the rode, I went to one about six miles away.  Had it not been getting close to dark (and dinner time) I may have taken a longer ride. It was so nice out.

Great ride today here on Vancouver Island.  Approx 55 miles with several coffee stops and views - 58-62 degrees (Yankee temp).  Great route that I do often when traffic is low and weather is good.  Had a friend riding their bike with me.  If this link works it'll show the route and you can zoo in for a good view - even go to google street view - maybe?

More rain and cooler temps coming tonight.  Supposedly sunny on Sat - but colder.  .

I did get captured by google street camera on my way home from the airport for lunch about 2 1/2 years ago, when I was still in the helicopter business. It was already past me when I recognized it or I would have waved to you Rick.
