So last week it was cold and wet.
This week the sun is out, it’s warm and we’re having some wonderful weather.
Not surprisingly I saw a lot more motorcycles out there on the roads the last two days than I saw in the previous months.
I find this sad in many ways. I just don’t understand why some people only ride when the weather is “perfect”. If you only ride when it’s just right you don’t ride that much and you miss out of a lot of great riding. Now remember I’m here in the San Francisco Bay Area, with a commute on one of the most beautiful freeways in the world, so I do make allowances for those of you who don’t live where there is riding weather 365 days a year. I’m pretty sure that most people who live where the weather is that crappy ride more than some of the softies here in CA.
What also stumps me is I basically see myself as a “softy” when it comes to motorcycling. For example, I often drive when it’s raining, and when it’s really cold. Of course nearly every time I do I end up wishing I road my motorcycle.
