I rode to work today. It was like in the upper 40's here. Not bad at all for a commute.

Am I evil for doing wheelies on my commute to work? Normally they are just little power wheelies when I take off in first, but I couldn't resist today and brought it all the way up then shifted to 2nd and rode it out to about 9 grand or so. Nothing too impressive, but they sure are fun. I take a little shortcut that puts me on an access road to bust a u-turn to get on the highway. There is never traffic on the access road, so I don't feel like it's dangerous, other than the usual pitfalls of being on one wheel I guess.

35F and light snow didn't stop me today. I left with 320 miles on the odom., so my goal was to get to 350 before I came home. Then, I decided to take the long way home so I moved my goal up to 375. Got there but froze my ass off:eek: I can't wait to break this thing in:cryin

Why dont you guys get heat vests? The plug for the vest is always out of sight.
You mean like this?


Hard to see in the pic, but the BMW outlet is in front of the seat lock, and has the hinged outlet cover closed. I have never seen another R1 with one of these installed before mine. I put a BMW plug on a Battery Tender, makes it very easy to plug it in when the bike will sit a while, like
THAT'S ever going to happen :)

Well Montana is getting warmer! :rock Although i was a little worried when it snowed three inches on Monday. By Thursday it was mid fifties again!! Woohoo!! 175 miles so far :cryin All the good canyon roads have snow and ice on them, it is tough putting a lot of miles when driving 30mph around town.

As for the heat vests, I haven't done that yet, but I am going to get hand warmers. A couple of my friends put those on right away. They work awesome, keep your hands warm on those cold days. :thumbup

One final note, riding around with a cast on sucks! When it is cold I have to put my hand by the headers to keep it warm. :lol Left hand though, just the clutch, leaves the right with plenty to play with!! (With the throttle you sickos! :no )

Cold or not I had to get out today. Managed to get about 75 miles in so I am happy. I love the bike more than ever now. I was worred that I would not be comfortable for longer rides and I couldn't be more wrong. Hi today was about 41 but tomorrow is going to be 53-54 so I will be out and about again!

:rock
