I wait for a good spring rain to knock the salt and sand off of the roads.

 

Yeah, I would be most concerned with the salt on the roads this time of the year. Why rust up a perfectly good bike?

It'a the sand that's sooo bad...I hated this time of year, slide into those corners and all over..plus a lot of crap on the roads, too. Thirty five years of riding and three crashes was enough for me.

well stated and I agree except I still ride, and I never had a major crash, just minor slides for some road rash!!

There is a reason they don't put bumpers on motorcycles and there is a reason they call those crash bars. My motto is always pay attention to and watch out for any vehicle that is bigger than yours on the road. And Deer.

Was heading up Ice fishing today on 35 W at 6:30am and followed a guy who must have been doing a Duluth run or something? Followed him from Forest Lake to about Hinckley going 70 mph but he walked away from me doing about 75 mph. Could never catch up to see what he was riding but close enough to see he didn't have a windshield at 35 degrees! Hard core!! :crazy:

    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
    • Very quiet so far.  Maybe one distant gobble on the roost but couldn't tell for sure. At least the mosquitos seem to have calmed down in the last 10 minutes some.
