    It's almost the much awaited glorious time of year.

    When I get to pull my motorcycle out of storage. It's hard to judge an exact date these days. Last year I pulled it out around March 25 and only had a handful of nights where the temp dropped below freezing (no big deal when it happens a few times). However the year before that we got almost a foot of snow on April first. I'll have to start paying attention to the weather and once the temp is normally running in the low 50's and nights don't fall below freezing, I'm going to get her. Winter is truly a lonely time!

    Just head south, eventually you'll find a warm place.

    I’m waiting for it to just warm up a bit more myself.

    I never stopped riding mine except when there was snow and ice of the road. I never do.

    I can't wait to get the scoot out of it's winter sleep. I'm getting a little older so I won't ride if it gets below freezing but once it's warms up, it's on! This year we're taking a week long trip on the bikes.

    Last year I mowed my yard for the first time of the season on March 28th.

    Right now I have about a foot of snow still in the yard and it looks like another big storm will roll through late next weekend into Monday...

    Probably no motorcycles (or dune buggies in my case) until May.

    We have great riding weather year round here in Florida but it is not safe to ride between October and April because of the "Snow Birds" And "Blue Hairs". Seldom ride locally or take road trips during those months.

    82 degrees here today and the largemouth are starting to spawn.

    It's almost the much awaited glorious time of year.

    Last Saturday, I was blasting down old country roads in 68 degree sunny weather. My soul was singing.

    I'm really looking forward to my annual solo-trip up the Blueridge Parkway this Summer. It's usually 3 to 4 days of blissful solitude, punctuated by beautiful scenery, country cooking and nice folks.
