One Last Zoom Before Winter

    Newer Older

    Come on. One last zoom before winter begins. We've been having some AMAZINGLY mild weather this winter, weather so good that we're already seeing a lot of motorcycles around! Today's forecast, however, calls for super-cold (like,
    -15C or so) weather to return with perhaps some snow, even! It was fun to see the snow and cold weather spilling over the beautiful rocky mountains.

    I like nothing better than riding. It's how I leave work (since I work at home).

    Taken at the Calaway Park exit off the Trans Canada Highway, west of Calgary, AB, Canada. I *ALMOST* had her at 160 km/h (~100mph) today on the way back-- for a brief instant).

    The wind was incredible. I have plans to take a few long-distance trips this summer and I think I'll be putting the fairing on if I'm going to make that trip!

      Cool picture. It's got a kind of Easy Rider in the desert feel to it.

      Great photo! Becasue of the angle, the kick-stand is not visible so it looks like the bike is just about to topple!

      Sorry for my ignorance...is that a 1980 Honda? I'm possibly getting one real soon and it was the goofy stock handle bars. I'm looking to take them off for the short bars such as yours. I'm an extreme noob to bikes especially one so old. lol
