First ride...

Most years we don't get the bikes out too early cause our gravel road stays pretty muddy until mid May. But this year, we finally got some decent conditions and it dried out much earlier. Spent the morning getting the bikes ready, when it was sunny and in the sixties. By the time we got going, it was cloudy and had dropped into the fifties, so it wound up being a little cooler than expected. The highlight of the ride was probably the new frost heaves and dips in the road that almost sent the bike airborne. But all in all, it was pretty good for the first ride.
Took the 650 Moto Guzzi out for the first ride. It handles a lot like the old Triumph I rode back in the day, pretty much fun.

Got Andy's bike running, but then...
She noticed that some some of the rubber suspension bands were completely split (removed one to see it better). I think it's time for some maintenance.
