  1. We have had some beautiful days. There is still snow on the ground, so it might be a little early for a "ride." Glad everyone is ok just the same.

  2. Though the weather has warmed up, and the urge to get out there and ride is great, there is still a ton of sand on the road from winter. I know there are many "seasoned" riders out there who can handle just about anything, but this accident should provide a bit of a wake up call. It's not quite time to ride just yet. Glad they are both going to be ok.
