Doing taxes and a short ride

It was 30 degrees out when I woke up this morning, riding was on my mind but I had a bunch of stuff that I needed to do before I could even think about getting on a bike and going riding. My main concern today was to get my taxes done, which I was trying to get done for the last two weeks but I was constantly running out of time. Well, I finally did my taxes today, and a few other things that I needed to get done for a while, I could finally go ride but not yet. My license plates expired at the end of March. Duh!

My stickers arrived a couple of weeks ago, I didn‘t even bother to check them out since I didn‘t ride last week. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the envelopes… the 2006 stickers are ORANGE! Way cool, one of my favorite colors.

By the time I got the trickle charger off the bike and 954 moved in to the driveway and running, it was already almost 5PM. I guess this will be a short ride. I can’t believe the last time I rode this bike was March 11th.

Today was a sunny day, not a cloud in the sky, there was a chilly wind blowing and temperatures were in the mid to low 40’s, definitely below average for this time of the year. With the Widder electric vest and the heated grips it was pleasant ride, but had I gone riding all day, I would have needed to bundle up more.

Didn’t go very far, wanted to be home around 7PM before sunset. I remembered this place a few towns over where these trains would park, I used to work in this area years ago, seemed like a good place to take some pictures, so I did.
