All of a sudden, the temperature warms up to a balmy 40 degrees, the skies are clear, and there is a chance to go for a ride. However, there are patches of slushy ice and snow, roads that were never plowed, cracked and broken pavement from plows, and cold temperatures. A perfect day for a ride if you have an R100GSPD. The R bikes like the crisp air, and the heated grips (even though they only work on the high setting) made it a pleasant ride. I put some sea foam in the tank as I don't know when we might be out again, but if the roads are reasonably clear, the PD is the automatic steed of choice.
