This is the way to start a new year. Beautiful blue sky with not a cloud to be seen. It has become something of a tradition to start the year on two wheels. It is a sort of defiance against winter. Today was cold. A high of 26 degrees, but it felt great to be out on a motorcycle. I thought it would be a short ride just to prove a point, but it turned into a few hours on largely deserted roads. This bodes well for 2015.
