I got out on my first ride of the season today.
It was a spur of the moment thing. My wife and her sister had gone to a
65th birthday and retirement dinner for our brother in law in Port Elmsley
about 175 km (110 miles away. I cut the lawn and thought hell I'm up for a
free prime rib dinner I'll take the bike. First I had to find it under a
mountain of yard sale crap. Added air to the tires lubed the chain then
went to get my gear. I found Levi my labrador
had eaten my left cold weather glove. All I could find was my right
hand skidoo glove. I fpound a pair of elk skin gloves that I from Steve
Northrup. It was 16C (62F) I figured these'll do. Not thinking I'd be
returning in of the evening.
It was a beautiful day so I rode over to Calabogie and took 511 the Lanark
road.. 50 km of twisties. After 3 hours I managed to make it to Port
Elmsley and supper. By the time I was ready to leave the temperature was 4c
(40F). I had packed long underwear but not my electric vest. I scrounged a
pair of snowmobile mitts from the host and took off. The darker it got the
colder it got. A stop for gas and 1.5 hours later I pulled in the driveway.
Both my knee caps were nearly frozen. I've had this before and dropped my
old Yamaha 650 twin in Kirkland Lake when I stopped and my frozen knees
wouldn't move . I remembered this and as I rolled into town I removed my
feet from the pegs and moved my legs around .
I'll have to install my heated grips. I'm glad I had the mitts.
Still a cold ride is better than no ride.
