First ride

Just took my first 12 miles on my new Linear. Didn't want to quit. Had to get out and try it today as possible big snow coming tonight. Told wife when I got back that I had enough of that..... for about 10 minutes... and went back and rode some more. No questions for forum, just had to share my great time. Made people smile in our small community even made the dogs smile!!!

I'll ride in a dusting but don't like trying to ride in the maybe 3 inches we got.

I either ride on gravel roads or have to get on some busy country highways. I don't trust the car drivers on the blacktops when it gets enough snow to be slippery.

I have found that 0 is my limit of what is too cold for me.
