2006-xt225-usa-dpbmc-3.jpgAm hoping to get my motorcycle out soon.  We did have a few nice days in a row in late March.  But that is what we call fake Spring.  But now we are into April so thinking we might not  (for the most part) get one more big snow storm.  Made a post all ready about needing a new helmet.  Plan to get one soon-ish.  As well I need to get this years plate sticker.  The I will be good to go.  Last year got two new tires.  That took weeks to sort out.  So lost a lot of riding time.  Hoping to get more in this year.

For the past few years in early May have been able to get out on my 2006 Yamaha XT 225.  It’s not looking so good this year.  The temperature has only gone above 10c a few times.  There has all so been lots of rain.  Would like to get it out soon because I need two tires.  As the weather gets better the motorcycle shop gets super busy.  All so with all this virus stuff going on you can’t just show up at the shop.  May be next week will be better.

The weather is past April (2019) has been pretty bad.  Only had a few really nice days.  Now that it is May hoping to get my 2006 Yamaha XT 225 out and ready for the season.  Has been about seven months since I was last out for a ride.  I miss it.  I would ride all winter if I could.  But freezing to death or crashing on ice doesn’t sound fun.  Have had the motorcycle for 13 years now.  It is showing lots of wear now in spots.  Still works great thou.  Can’t see myself ever getting rid of it.  At some point would like to get a new one.  Just not in the cards at this time.

This weather this April (2018) has been pretty shitty.  It has not warmed up at all.  In past years have had my motorcycle, Yamaha XT225, out by now.  Don’t mind ridding when it is a bit cold in the mornings.  There is still lots of frost.  Which means there is some ice on the roads.   I am hoping the last week of the month to get out for the first ride of the year.  Looking forward to taking it to work again.
