At 67 degrees today I finally got Laurie out for her first ride of the season. Lots of changes since her last ride. We put on about 70 miles and dinner in there somewhere. Couple of things to note...after an hour, she was ready to still keep moving...that was one positive. Second was just being more comfortable in general. What changed you ask...


Well first, I had a different "stock seat" with this one being a heated from an 06. Its the one I did the heat mod for so i can have heat on my 2005. It seems to be a little more plush than my other stock seat. Not a lot, but some. Then, even though we didn't think about it, I had put on the added back rest for the passenger after riding season last year. I think it was the mustang back rest add-on or something like that. AT any rate, about the time we almost got home it dawned on me that was on there. when I mentioned it, she said yes, that is part of it and it really helped her back and seat area sitting differently.

Lastly, she got to use the heated seat! OOOOO she was liking that little toasty feeling. :) Ride started out at 67 and was down to 54 by the time we got home. Heat for her was a necessity. heated seat, my heated jacket...all was good (could have used my heated pants though...she was getting cold)

So all in all a good start to the season.

going to be a little bit. next weekend is Easter and a girls weekend. the following weekend is our anniversary weekend and we are headed to Galena (no not on the bike). Following weekend is a girls weekend again, then the ride in. One of the next two I need to get to my parents in Winona MN.

It could be June before I can either call or attend another RTE... :(

some day...
