November 1, the unofficial start to winter riding. I had the urge to get my November ride in early. Easy to do when it's in the 50's. I zipped the quilted lining into my riding pants, pulled on the ski socks and suited up for a ride to the coast.
MAX BMW was having an end of Autumn cook out.
Max had a nice turn out. He was flipping burgers and commented that he needed to get new grill if the crowd keeps getting bigger. I reminded him that his distribution list keeps getting bigger but his grill has stayed the same! I'll bet there will be two grills for the spring cook out.
Tiss the season for politicians, even at your motorcycle dealer
The N.Hampton Mobil and Eriving Station where nice enough to have a little price war, the consumer was the winner
It was in the low 50's, I didn't have to plug in, but did have the Gerbing jacket and my new First Gear electric gloves on. It felt like November. The leaves were mutted in color and there are more on the ground than on the branches. It was good waving weather too, if you're out in November, you have set yourself apart from the pack, even the knit cap crowd was waving to me.
I was uninspired at the beach. The tide was waning, so no crashing waves to be found. The sky, while not gray, was cloudy. I snapped a few shots, and headed toward home. I'll be back when winter settles in, I love being an hour from the beach or the mountains.
November, it's not time to put the bike away, it's time to pull out the layers, plug in and enjoy the ride!
