Come on Spring!!

The weather is looking better today. It's 42 degrees in my back yard. That's in the shade, on the north side of the house. The snow is melting off the roof so fast, it looks like some one's running a garden hose off the roof.

I got an e-mail from Denniskirk.com. It said they're having a tire sale, with up to 40% off... I checked their prices for a set of Michelin PR-2's, and found their prices had gone up nearly $30.00 A TIRE from about a month ago . So much for a "sale". I ended up buying a set of tires from Motorcycle Superstores. Their prices had actually dropped since the last time I checked prices. I have a set of 120/70ZR-17 and 190/55ZR-17  Michelin Pilot Road 2's coming for my Zx-14.

I've been looking at places to go this year. My list of possible things to do includes,
May 14, A day at the track for a "cornering and safety seminar".
May  20-22,  The FJR rally in Russellville, Arkansas.
June 12-16, The sport-touring.net meet in Custer, South Dakota.
August ? The Sturgis rally, and western states again.

I've started looking at maps and checking out web sites like roadsideamerica.com, trying to find interesting routes. I'd kind of like to take in some of the Pacific Coast Hwy. Maybe some eastern, north central California. Last year, before I retired, I was sent out to the Angels Camp/Copperopolis/Vallecito area of CA. We had a prisoner transfer to do. It was a beautiful area. It would also be nice to ride some of the old Route 66.

I have more planning to do.
