I bought a cover for the winter. It was on sale for 20$. Maybe I won't get the "ride her bug" if I don't see her...🤣🤣🤣😂
Don't forget that we have a document for miles traveled by bike in THIS year (2021). Please just note the miles for this year and not the odo reading since most of us record the odo elsewhere.Just got back in from a 152 mile ride...
That looks like a non-porous rain cover, which is suitable for protecting your bike outdoors in inclement weather. For indoor storage, you really need a porous dust cover, which will not trap moisture and will do a much better job of protecting your baby in the garage.
Looked up the route on Google Maps, looks like a lot of fun riding mate.I went for a day ride yesterday - a 320 mile loop. The weather was supposed to be in the 80'sF everywhere - the coast, mountains and desert - so I picked the mountains and desert. Pulled out the summer mesh jacket and started my ride at 7am and it was 68F. The warmth was feeling good and it was only going to get better. Not so fast. At the bottom of Ortega Hwy (the local twisties) it turned to 45F and I spent 15 minutes gritting my teeth until I climbed out of the cold pocket. I headed to Borrego Springs via 79, a meandering 2 lane hwy though mountains and valleys, and S22, a super twistie road with solid rock on one side and beautiful views (steep cliffs) on the other. Ah, finally in the 80'sF. On the road from Borrego Springs to Salton Sea, with absolutely no civilization for miles in any direction, I came upon a sign (pictured) which I couldn't believe was there. A brand new sign even. So much can be said.
Well, onwards. I took a back road through date orchards and farmland and then headed up another super twistie road out of Palm Desert. Lunch at Paradise Valley Cafe, then I made my way back to Ortega Hwy for the final leg home. A great ride with only about a 5 mile stretch on a freeway, otherwise 2 lane roads.
