Re: Ride to Work

Hmmmmmm. I wish.
Holding the clutch for 1+ hours in 104 heat index is not my idea of fun. Austin traffic sucks.

Go in early, stay late...or get a sweet 8 mile commute like mine. Heat is getting up there though. Ran into Austin for the weekly lunch and it was toasty.

Re: Ride to Work

Nope, no thanks. I'll be riding, but I'm on vacation and going nowhere near work.

Re: Ride to Work

A center-wide lunch is planned for all riders on Monday. Hopefully we get a bit of a break from this heat on Monday.

Re: Ride to Work

I rode the 250 in on friday. Sally was agreat choice for the grueling 3 mile journey.

Suppose Suzi will get to go Monday. Might have to take a detour or two.

Re: Ride to Work

I rode in today since I'm not working tomorrow.

I'll probably bracket it in and ride in Tuesday as well.

Stepped out to snap a pic and for some reason Tapatalk won't let me edit my post.

Only my bike and my coworkers gixxer here at the moment.

Re: Ride to Work

It was perfect weather at 7:30 when I rode the 2 miles from home to work. Now it's raining. Ha!

Exclamation Re: Ride to Work

Didn't ride Monday, stuff on bikes required attention and I ain't riding if there's something I know about that needs to be "fixed." But I made up for it yesterday and put 403mi on the ol' V65 Magna jbird let me have. That engine is full of stonk, everywhere, and I got abt 40mpg, overall!

The PROBLEM: A previous owner (NOT jbird, before him!) had rigged up a toggle switch so the rider could turn on the cooling fan whenever, a neat idea . . . . but he powered it by unplugging the connector from the thermostatic switch and plugging a hot lead from the battery into that, killing the OEM fan turner-on-er so the toggle was the ONLY way to turn the fan on!!!

I had to fix that!

And while I was fixing the radiator fan juice problem, I wired up GPS and a ciggie-lighter with Powerlet USB insert for charging 'lectronic stuff. And got it wrong so it blew a fuse after abt 4hrs on the road, when the temp was in the 90's, so I'm gonna re-do it, using heavier wire (18ga, maybe even 16, but big enough to carry a 20A fuse, anyway) from the batt to the h-bar area. The 22ga the PO had used was apparently just enough to run the fan, but not the fan and GPS (insignificant power draw) at the same time.

Re: Ride to Work

Well I missed Riding to Work on 6/20. But, I did ride to work last few days. I am able to park my bike in the shade right outside my window. It's my 2014 Honda XR250L. Fun little bike to ride.

I told my wife the bike is like a faithful dog, waiting for its master to come out and play.

Re: Ride to Work

It is fun to look out the window and see your bike. Ah, the possibilities...

Re: Ride to Work

I work from home... No riding to work for me. The street bike gets considerably less miles now. I just ride for fun now.

Digging that! I can't see mine 2 feet out the window, but I do revel in all the comments all day from the Harley riders at work about how I shouldn't be in the grass - bikes are meant for pavement.

Even more fun burning them on the way out of the lot!
