As I do (or try to remember to do) every couple of weeks, I went out to the garage to start up the motorcycle. After a few tries it coughed, sputtered, cleared its throat, and settled into idle. With the engine warmed up, temperatures hovering around 40, and abundant sunshine, only one thing remained.
The sun was warm – wearing a lot of black helps this time of year – and traffic light. I stuck to main roads and didn’t see another motorcycle while I was out, though I did see a couple on Saturday.
Too bad it’s supposed to snow tomorrow, but spring is coming.
