Sunday Ride: Finally a Break in the Winter Weather

Sunday Ride: Finally a Break in the Winter Weather

Cold February RideOn Sunday morning I woke up to sunshine. As I padded down he hall towards the coffee pot, I got that feeling. You know… that special feeling. The one that says maybe you’ll be able to sneak out for a ride today. And, I did.

With temperatures approaching 40 degrees, the roadways though wet were free of ice and snow. Even with no electrics running on the DRZ, my REV’IT gear is really quite warm. The more I use the Sand jacket and pants, the more I like them. Money well spent.

I putt-putted along, splashing through the puddles along the north shore, stopping near one of the sod farms in Riverhead. The frozen field looked like the tundra. When I took my helmet and gloves off, the wind stung my face and hands as it came whipping across the open plain.

It felt so great to ride. The weeks of snow and ice clogging the roads were a distant memory.

I’m sure you’ll be happy to know that I have another pair of glasses with – get this – TWO lenses! I’m going for the Carrie Donovan look. How am I doing? Fabulous?

Now I just have to work on the helmet hair and the windburned face. One step forward, two steps back.

TopGear on Motorbikes: Vietnam

TopGear on Motorbikes: Vietnam

One of the excellent Christmas presents I received this year was a DVD of season 10 of TopGear. I love this show. While I love Jeremy Clarkson’s dry and sometimes caustic wit, for some reason I have a soft spot for Richard Hammond even though he is teeny man. James May, ever the underdog rounds out the hilarious trifecta.

The TopGear folks don’t usually do anything with motorcycles so their Vietnam special from 2008 is a real treat. If you’ve got an hour to kill while you nurse your post Christmas food hangover, give it a look. You won’t be disappointed!

*the Vietnam special is not on this DVD
