Beautiful Day


-4°F (-20°C) this morning turned into +23°F (-5°C) by 5 pm! Not too shabby. After riding to College Coffeehouse this morning, I stopped by the Harley/BMW/Honda dealer for a BMW open house which translates to "free lunch". There were brats, sauerkraut and pretzels. Quite a few airheads at the free lunch none of whom were probably in the market for a new bike. I was hoping that they would have one of the new 300cc singles but was told that there was a possibility that they wouldn't even be imported due to some flack over beef. I hate politics…

Later in the afternoon, I went to the church to run sound for a youth fundraiser. It was a dessert auction and my contribution was dark chocolate chip cookies with pecans and dark chocolate brownies. The trick is not to leave with any of the delicious looking treats…

Rig is looking good RichardM!

Your temps still seem so chilly, but I bet it felt downright balmy to you.

Hopefully the 300's will be imported before ant kind of tariff's can be imposed on euro bikes. Fingers crossed anyway. And all because of a proposed beef tariff I believe.

That makes about 35°C less than we had today, Richard. But I have to admit, the white stuff and the blue skies are a good match for your rig.

RichardM said...

The blue/white does go well with the snow...

RichardM said...

Yes, balmy. I moved the rig several times and it is pretty much shirt sleeve weather. It'll be nice to see a reasonably priced BMW for a change...

RichardM said...

The ideal situation for us is warm weather followed by several days of snow. That may wipe out some of the mosquitoes!

Nice that you had good weather for the BMW open house. We didn't go this year and I'm sure we missed brats and chili. :-)

RichardM said...

As expected, I was the only thing there with handlebars. They asked me to give them a warning when I was ready to "peel out" and I told him that Urals can't "peel out".

Lynne Goebeler said...

Haha, that certainly made me smile!

ToadMama said...

Nice weather! I'm sure that felt little very. You must be a strong man to leave without any of the yummy sounding treats.

Sunny day, food, what more could you ask for! The cookies you contributed sounded heavenly.

RichardM said...

Very nice weather. I made a point of bidding on things but not going back to raise my bids.

RichardM said...

Continued sunny and warm would be nice. It snowed again last night,

Wow, it's unusual to see someone riding on our Urals in Alaska.
