Hey, one of you guys do me a favor and take a nice ride during lunch!



I am temporarily without a bike (and couldn't ride one yet, anyhow), and I'd appreciate it. 'Course, somebody could make two trips to work, but how much fun could that be?

I got a little bit rain spits. near Renton. But what is funny is everytime there is a hint of rain you will not see a cruiser in the parking lot. Only sportbikes and touring rigs. If I had 75 miles everyday I would probably step up to a bike like the Trophy

Here there's me and a guy with an older Electra-glide, a guy with a VFR and a Seca 2 that rides pretty much year round, all the rest show up if it's above 70 and no clouds.

Here's one more who rides everyday. Oklahoma offers year 'round riding as long as the occasional 100+ f or -10 f days don't get to you. The only thing that gets me in the cocoon is ice on the road.



Some days it's the Road King and others it's the ST1100. You might guess that the ST gets ridden most on the heavy rain days.



You bet I'll be riding this Wednesday as well.

Did you get hurt very badly in the process of killing a Subaru??

I'd have ridden to work if I had a job.



Oh well.

I ride to work everyday it not's raining or too cold. This "annual ride your Harley to work day" is ridiculous. Maybe we'll see lots of dressers being trailered to work and unloaded in the parking lots.

I ride to work every day that there isn't snow on the ground. The weather around Lake Superior is about as fickle as you will ever find, but I rather enjoy that "are you crazy?" look that I get from passing cagers in the middle of our monsoon like rain showers, and the "you damn fool!" I get from my wife. If only they could see the smile behind my helmet. I guess some of us just know how to enjoy life that much more.

If I did not ride my bike to work everyday rain or shine it wouldn't get ridden.

I ride to work everyday except when it's raining. In winter I ride my 1970 TR6R or Norton Commando about once a week. They work well in the cold.
