There may be no better feeling than a wide open road stretching out ahead with only a bit of carbon and two wheels beneath me.
We had our first real "storm" of the season last night. Riding post storm in California is beautiful - it's like the rain cleans everything up and big puffy clouds are splashed across the sky. I managed to dodge (& get hit by) a few remaining showers, and did my best to avoid the clutter along the side of the road that accumulates after a storm.
It was a great day to own a bike and be out riding it.
