Season 3 !

Spring is here! The weather's been on the cooler side but we did have some sunny days last week. I took the bike out for a short ride on Sunday, my first ride this season. Bike runs great, though I suspect its running slightly rich-might have to put in a smaller main jet or tweak the mixture screw.
In preparation for The Big Out-West trip later this year ( more on that soon!) I purchased some touring gear today. I'd been looking at all-weather touring jackets and finally settled on the Tour Master Transition jacket. It looks great, is waterproof and is loaded with features including vents, armor, multiple pockets and removable inner liner for cold weather. And its very reasonably priced compared to similar jackets by Aerostitch or Firstgear. To go with it, I bought the Tour Master Venture pants. I should be receiving both items next week and I plan to test them out on a 2 day trip riding the back roads in Indiana. Next month, I'll be getting a new helmet- this time I'm going for the modular (flip-up) style full face helmet.

Well, well...good to see that you really are alive. ;)

The Tour Master brand is good and shouldn't let you down. Looks like you've got a good set on order. It's definitely something that I have to put on my short list.

I may have gotten a ride a couple of days ago, but it doesn't look like Old Man Winter is done with us yet. It's been snow/raining/hailing all day here and the wind has been brutal. Thankfully the dealership is booked up, so it will take a bit for them to get my tires done.

We going to get any modeling pics when the suit comes in? ;)

Backroads Indiana? I can make some suggestions, or ... could I tag along? I think you'll be very pleased with the TourMaster/Cortech gear. It is great and affordable.

The riding gear looks good. Hope to get a set myself one of these days. Guess it feels good to ride after the hibernation :)
