I Ride: '09 ZX6R
So it was in the mid 40's this morning, with zero predicted precipitation..... My wife pretty much insisted, that I ride to work. How could I say no?
6 a.m. Solidly dark, and I am mindful of random dirt/questionable traction --- for about the first 30 seconds. Then, it's right back to vigorous application of throttle, and riding as fast as reasonable without over running my head lights.
I didn't see another bike, either direction.
When I filled up the bike at a Sheetz station yesterday, I did so out of need rather than as part of a good plan; I had intended to stop at a Shell station about 10 miles before that, when I saw the tanker truck filling the station's tank, I rode right on by. Thought it better to avoid the swirlled up sediment and water that could occur.
Not sure Sheetz was a better choice. My idle speed is more erratic on this tank. I had to raise my idle speed, stalled the bike twice waiting in line for the gate. At least I'm already 90 miles into the full tank. I know I have some Techrolene in the garage. I'll add some to the 1/4 tank I have in there now, and re-fill at one of the local to me Shell stations I routinely use in the next few days.
Good ride, other than that.
