I'd love to ride everyday. Extreme heat and cold sometimes makes riding unbearable. This summer with the 90+ degree heat was miserable to ride in. Also, rain is not biker friendly and rain was predicted almost every day this summer. The weather is supposed to warm up this week, the rain is gone, and hopefully I'll be back on the bike.
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "Holy $hit...What a Ride!!"
I just started riding this summer, took my first trip over the bridge Sat night (in the rain...eck).
I will be commuting to DC on the bike once I get some more experience.
If you haven't taken the motorcycle safety course, I highly recommend this DVD. It's well worth the cost, check out the preview video......and yeah, that's a 100 lb. chick tossing a big bagger around like it's a dirt bike.
Here's my current ride....well, the pic isn't current, but the bike still looks pretty much the same. A 2000 HD Ultra Classic, 35K miles now and still going strong after 11 years.....no oil drips either!
Bikers.....if you haven't done this before, you might check it out. This bikefest grows larger and larger every year. There's always a classic rock music group, good eats, a bike show you can enter if you want, vendors and best of all.....it's nice local day ride up and back. I love fall riding.
Rock Hall Fall Bikefest Date: Sunday the 16th Time: 1-5pm Location: Rock Hall Bayside Landing & Park Contact: PH: 410-639-7636 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org URL: www.rockhallbikefest.blogspot.com Motorcycle enthusiasts return for a day of fun, food, cold beverages, live music, slow ride games, and contests at Rock Hall Bayside Landing & Park. $5/bike. Classes: Stock, Modified, HD Sportsters, Imports, Ladies Bikes, People’s Choice, Vintage, and Customized. 1-5pm. Awards given at 3:30pm. Proceeds benefit the Rock Hall Fire Company.
Here is a list of three good commuter bikes if anyone is interested:
BMW F800GS or any F800 ( 50-70 MPG) Harley Sporter ( 50-60 MPG) 885cc 41HP Suzuki Storm (50-60 MPG) 800cc or any other 750-900cc bike.
It seems the big bikes that are over 550lbs only get 35-45MPG (1150-1300 cc). For large bikes, Harley bikes get some of the best gas millage because they have less HP. My BMW only gets 35-40 MPG depending on how fast I accelerate.
The little bikes with 250cc get 75-90MPG, but at 300lbs you get blown off the bridge.
