    I got to take my new MB out today for a good long ride for the first time. I recieved the kit and assembled it on Thurs. and sure enough as soon as I was finished it started to rain. And it rained. And it rained.
    We got more rain here in the Chicago area than we have in I don't know how many years. Floods everywhere. Highways still closed today including 80-94. Don't know if I-65 is open yet or not.
    Anyway, it was the bees knees. I found a really nice route that doesn't have very much auto traffic. Lots of curves and hills and good roads. Part of the route goes around a nice lake in a really ritzy neighborhood with brand new streets.
    The bike ran great and I got lots of smiles and waves. The housewifes and the lady joggers also added nicely to the scenery.:evil:

    over 11 inches (of rain) at my house....some of it in my kitchen.

    Ride it! I will be on the road shortly. Thinking about riding from home to my office in Merrillville on Saturday (13.8 miles).
  3. sounds like there was nice scenery to go with the nice scenery.
