    Re: anyone riding out there?


    I went for a ride today from Newton, to Cambridge, then hoped on to Beverly and stopped at Cycle 128 to check out an FZ6 and a GSX650F...both were nice! Can't decide...very different in a way....each with its own pluses and minuses. Then took 1A back all the way to 16 and took 16 all the way back to Newton. The first half of the ride was great, but by 3pm, coming home the wind picked up and I honestly was pretty cold. My Ninja purred like a cat and was very smooth - smooth enough that I am thinking maybe I should keep it another season...

    Re: anyone riding out there?

    I saw a BMW going down Main street Ashburnham while I was in the dining hall eating lunch.

    I still need to wait for 400 feet of 4"+ of solid ice to melt before I can get the bike out. It wouldn't be bad if it was flat, but the hill really throws a wrench in the works. I know that if I can't get my truck UP it in 4wd on the first try, then I'm sure as hell not gunna fight with a bike to get up it. If it was just snow, man, that would be EASY!

    Re: anyone riding out there?

    I'm still riding whenever the roads are clear and it's bearable in terms of cold. I rode to class today at Northeastern then went for a ride around Boston after class. I stopped at the Harpoon Brewery in South Boston then relaxing at Rowes Wharf for a little while. Looking to get a ride together when the weather isnt sucky. If anyone's going for a ride in the Boston area, let me know!

    Thanks,
    Josh

    We're up on the North Shore. Bout 1/2 an hour North of Boston. Keep your eyes on the Rides & Eventes section... Chances are I'll be posting a bunch of little rides this year (both in milage & in number of bikes. Sometimes a couple hours of riding is all you need & I like to keep it under 8 riders... 10 riders max. More than that & I prefer to split up the groups).

    We didn't end up riding today this morning like we were hoping to... stars didn't align for me but Nick might have gone out for a little bit this afternoon.

    I took the new Killer out today and did 45 miles. The new heated grips work great. I had a fun ride. The stebel horn I put on it is fun. Nice and loud, I love it.

    Re: anyone riding out there?

    The Dunlop Qualifiers on my old XJ weren't too bad in the snow, the TrailWings on my 'strom weren't great in the snow when they were new and absolutely suck after a few thousand miles.

    There's some guys on AdvRider that are running studded knobby-ish tires that do pretty well in the snow - maybe I'll try that for next winter
