I finally got out yesterday, had to shovel some snow/ ice, but I had a nice hour long ride. The day was sunny and thirty seven degrees with dry roads which made for a nice first ride although I wished it was longer. I figured out the suspension settings, used the cruise control and grip heaters and was happy to have a windshield/ winglets/ handguards to block the cool wind. I am so used to having the wind on me with my Vmax it was a nice change to ride behind some protection for a change. I did not get any pictures I was too distracted with just getting to ride for the first time!:D

Yeah we thought spring was finally here. The snow was gone, bikes were out. Grass was turning green. Golf courses were opening. Well, we got 6" of heavy wet snow last night and thunderstorms are forecast for tonight. This morning I saw every form of precipitation known to man. Snow, rain, freezing rain, sleet and hail all coming down at the same time. Some parts of Wisconsin got 10-12" of snow. What a mess.

Almost the same in Denmark...The weather was nice, no snow, no rain, no salt on road...and temperatures wel above frost, even in night.
But suddenly colder, and frost at night, and some parts of Denmark have put salt on the roads again.
And I think it will be to cold to ride a saturday trip this weekend, because I only ride for fun and relaxing:p.

We were on the way to Texas when the snow hit. Crawled out of southern MN right ahead of the freeway getting shut down!

Went and rode Arkansas after the races in TX. It was a great week!
