I feel like they do this all year. Repaired holes r
are all bumpy. When I travel to different states they take out an entire section and re do it so everything is smooth. Just batching about how they do it year round.

Thats a rude brag there. ha. They do, do the patching all year. Have you noticed how they work on a piece of road for maybe a month then never finish it but move onto another stretch a few miles away then we are SOL because now multiple roads sections are shut down. Be careful riding so early with only small amounts of rain since all that debris is still on the road.

I'm definitely interested in a meet up sometime this summer. The forecast this week for us in the SE area at least says Sunday could be 55 degrees with a slight chance of a shower....that day may just be the day I'll pull the steed out from the shed.

Hell yeah I'm out. I rode home from work last night...24 degrees. The salt is all washed off the roads, that's nice. As long as the roads are dry I'll ride. I don't have any heated gear...layers work wonders. A t-shirt, 2 thermals, a hoodie, and a ski jacket keeps my core warm.

Maybe the roads are clean by you, but over here, they are definitely still FULL of salt and sand...not to mention 2 inches of snow again today

Meh, wasn't sticking to the road

Yesterday's weather was weird...essentially several white-outs followed by sunny clear skies. I'm so ready for summer.
