    Took advantage of incredible weather last weekend to put over 300 miles on the F700GS, including a ride to Delta Diner to win first bike of the year honors and the free piece of pie crown. Took over two hours to wash the salt off the bike when I got home, but it was well worth it! Back to heavy snow again this weekend.

    300 miles for free pie?
    Sounds like a deal to me.
    It is good to be king.

    The snow is mostly gone, and the driveway has dried up enough to allow me to venture forth on the F700GS again. Took a 50 mile ride yesterday, and followed up with a 135 mile breakfast ride today. I never thought I would accumulate 500 miles for the year already by the first of April in Northern Wisconsin.

    Went for a little spin on the WRX today to try out the windscreen, Sargent seat and new gearing, about 100km, half that highway. The screen and seat will definitely make highway travel more comfortable for the annual RTR Canada camping trip at Trout River park. Although I may have to remove the peak from my helmet to reduce buffeting. The new gearing lets me easily cruise at highway speeds.

    Met some fellow RTR members at Father Duffey's Well on Salmoneer Line.

    Really looking forward to the trip and spending a couple of weeks on the little Yamaha!

    Nice GS! Swapped out the K60s on mine for a set of Tourance Nexts today. My wife and I are heading for Idaho tomorrow for a few days, this will be our first ride of the Season. I'll see if I can post up a few pics at some point during the ride.

    A bit early for the passes over here yet.... snow melt running across the road, freezing at nights, scenic overlooks not cleared, snow on the shoulders etc.
    Here's a pic at Salmo Creston Pass on the May 24 weekend:

    Took the GSA out for its inaugural run of the season. After growling the Tiger around for a month the boxer has a very different feel to it. More vibes and less HP that takes some getting used to. Better suspension, wind protection and comfort makes up for it.
    Did I mention I really like motorbikes?

    If my wife would let me I would keep one in the house.

    Not Married. Two in the rec-room but there were bikes when I was. No fuel systems.

    Left town before 0700 yesterday and after dropping a package off at Port Blandford I went to the Starfish Eatery in Terra Nova Park for coffee. Some construction as per usual in the park but traffic was light enough for it to only be a bother. Came back through it again and hung the left and ended up in Lethbridge. Started right but swung around in the CLOSED Greenings parking lot and went to Port Rexton to visit with Townieglen. Fueled up there and had a spirited ride back to town. It finished the last bit of tread on my front tire so a new Tourance is sitting at the Toy Box with my name on it. 680kms for the day.

    I was westbound through Goobies in the cage when I saw you eastbound on two wheels. Got green eyed for a few minutes but glad to see you out and about. The weather this year has been late coming 'round but hopefully warmer temps and Blue skies are here to stay. Saw you a few weeks back on Pitts Memorial on the Ruckus as well.

    Went for a workout today. I mean a ride to Colinet. The wind was savage on the way down but quite pleasant on the way back. :)
