After a week of cold, then warm and raining, I almost got to ride today. It started out this morning at around 40 degrees and sunny with just one deterrent, wind gusts up to 45 mph. I was all set to keep my string of riding months going but it was just too windy. I've taken a ride on something at least once a month since a year ago. Sadly I haven't ridden at all this month and it ends today. As a personal consolation I fired up the 50cc bike just to hear it run. It started after a few cranks and kept running with the help of full choke. I won't pile on the snow flurries to further my excuse for not getting out but it was not a pleasant day. I'm hoping for a warm day in February to start the string of ridden months again. If not, well, Spring is getting closer.
