Default Anyone Driving?

Went out for a ride yesterday!
The temperature on Long Island was almost 60! - For February 12th it was darn nice. The car felt great - strong through the gears with the pipes singing. Just felt good to be alive!!!

Yesterday was my 4th ride in Feb. Got up to 55F and the streets were 95% dry. I only spun the tires in 3rd gear once. Yahoo!

YUP !! I bundled up and went out yesterday for about 45 minutes.
My only regret was the ear warmers muffled the sound of the pipes !
Oh...the fingers were starting to go numb too. BRrrr...

Monday was great weather, slightly chilly, but drove about 200 miles, Bear mountain area, then green lake, some twisty backroads. Planning to go again tomorrow
It's good to be able to enjoy these days

The forecast for this coming Saturday 4/25 is looking great, do we want to take a ride to Port Jeff for lunch? We could leave Nicks place around 10am.

Sorry to hear about all this cool weather. We have the opposite here in SoCal. 106 degrees yesterday and around 100 today. Unless you're going for a short drive, that can be brutal.

That's a little too much fun in the sun - when we get into the 90 range with our high humidity its no fun at all.
In the upper 90's you can't even breath...
Driving under 60 is tough - need the breeze!
