Here's the ride I took today - 43 miles, through 4 of the 5 boroughs of NYC in 2 hours. Purely utilitarian -- it was all errands. But I crossed 2 bridges and a tunnel...

to work,alas!

Me too, but not alas.  After several weeks of too busy, too rainy, too cold, or all three I was glad for a sunny day and some time.  Any chance to ride is a good one, no matter the destination.

I rode to lunch. Nice little jaunt. Bike started with no choke thingy.
I've gone back to my roots. British 1 lunger, stump puller.

Had a spectacular ride today, left home and rode up into the San Gabriel mountains. Great roads, great scenery but a little breezy. 200 miles all together. It was great to get out.
I would much rather ride a slow bike fast than a fast bike slow    Jack

I rode up to the Ben Avery shooting range to see what the folks at the National Muzzleloading Rifle Association's Western National Shoot were doing.

Rather than ride the back roads, I rode up I-17 about 35 miles.
The speed limit on this stretch of freeway is 65 mph so everyone was driving at 75-80 mph.
In order not to be hit I rode the whole distance at 65-75 mph.
The 65 was possible when I found a big 18 wheeler with an oversize load that I could follow.  Sense all of the traffic wanted to go around it they had changed lanes long before they were running up my tailpipe.
Of course, that only lasted about 5 miles before he turned off and I had to goose the bike back up to 75. :(

All in all it was a nice cool day.  Sun shining and a total of 70 miles round trip without a problem of any kind. :)

It seemed there were a lot less people competing than there has been in the past. :(
There were also fewer traders on Traders Row.  Hopefully some more competitors and traders will show up before the week end when I take a few of my rifles out there to see what I can get for them.  I'll be driving my car for that trip because when the rifle barrels are 42 inches long it's hard to pack them on my bike. :)

Oh, and this year the guy who sells Black Powder cancelled out so they are only selling powder to NMLRA members. 
I'm a member but there's going to be a lot of upset people who aren't this week end.

Yeah, the last couple I went to were way down on participants. And most of the rendezvous I used to go to don't even exist any more! Unfortunately, the trader's tables usually just had a bunch of junk on them. Nice guns for sale weren't there!
Jack and I rode by one last year, but we didn't stop. Probably shoulda! It was pretty small though.

Today, I sat on my B5 and made vroom-vroom noises while looking out the shed window at the slowly melting snow .......

This is a fun thread, you guys, but the ride report section is getting neglected!  We gotta show those iron barrel guys how much "we're" riding!  (I'm not riding...)
