Very nice, mscb. I know those "feels colder than it is" days very well.

RE: CB1100 Monthly Photo Challenge
As a disclaimer, I want y'all to know I'm a Kansas farm boy. Transplanted to Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I rode around today and took photos of our two local 'rivers'. First is the mighty Rio Grande:

It's purty shallow right now. Snow melt from the north will bring it up this spring. Wait a minute, we haven't had any snow yet down here!

İmage
We have cricks in Kansas bigger than this!

And this sign denotes the mighty Rio Puerco!

Yup, that's the Rio Puerco. Those are not ripples on the water's surface. Those are tire tracks in the sand.

The bars are perfect! I have these same bars on my 850 T3, so I wasn't sailing in uncharted waters when I chose them for the CB. The grips (besides their fitting issues) are also just what I was looking for.

We've gone for over 90 days without any precip down here. That sets us up for forest fires this spring.

Hoping NM gets some moisture soon. Fire season is starting to look pretty bad.

RE: CB1100 Monthly Photo Challenge
Got out to get some pics. I live in the SW Ohio hills. There are a number of creeks which flow from these hills down hill to the Ohio River. Creeks meander. Probably why we have so many curvy roads since the roads parallel the creeks. Anyhow here's a few from todays ride

also thought this was cool. Technically not a named creek but this waterfall froze thanks to 13 days in a row of below freezing temps

Bullskin creek didn't have a sign but it's also a major feeder creek for the Ohio
