More a non ride report

Recommended Posts

Guest Ralph
Not been out on't bike for about a week due to zero temp's and ice
don't mind the cold but getting to old to bounce down the road,
already got the worst case of cabin fever I ever had and it's not
December yet, hope to get a ride in tomorrow if ice does not form.

I rode last weekend here Michigan it was 30 to 36 in the morning and almost 40 in the afternoon. Rode the FZ ( it has heated grips ) about 85 miles and hit some black ice in some areas lost traction that slowed my ass down.

Well I got out today about 4c 38F ish did about 35 miles
did notice that after a short stop the outside temp was showing
about 19c due to heat coming up from the rad/engine affecting
the temp sensor, thing is that the same sensor is used by the
ecu to in part determine the fuel mix so in town or after a stop
the engine will run weaker than it already is.
On the way home I rounded a corner and two Apache Helicopters
carrying enough ordinance to fight a small war were coming straight
at me at very low level, they are very quiet I could only hear
a thin turbine wine they broke right to avoid some trees I had
just passed and were gone, if those lads were on your case you
would not know what it you.
