My truck has that digital readout of all 4 tires too, and one can watch the pressures increase as they get hot.

This, coupled with temperature readings, is very interesting - particularly when the starting pressure on the front and rear tires are different.  E.g., lower pressure tires heat up quicker.

Good post. 

I bought my good gauges years ago when I was actively tracking/instructing cars. I have not given them any further thought other than to occasionally check to make sure they read the same pressure.

On a related note, I am impressed with how accurate my cars' TPMS pressure read outs are.

They sale Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, Huski, and KTM. I guess what aren't they buying.
Certainly a good mix.
I hope sales remain up.

He says sales are up more than 20%. 
What bikes are selling? 

And what are the younger riders buying?

New tires and cold is not a good combination. One would think the reminder would be enough.

Satisfying end result, but for the loss of the card.

I always say good-bye to each season as it leaves and greet the new. 

It seems wise.

Face book has done more to slow this sight down than anything else. I for one will be gone if face book takes over, not interested in peoples day to day goings on.

I share your disinterest in social media, but I found you can easily monitor the MN-MSTA Facebook page without seeing anything else if this is your preference. 

All you need is to sign up for Facebook and then ask for an invitation to join the MN-MSTA group.  Sign up for the group.  Then ignore any friend requests you may receive.

Your rides are a perfect introduction to the area; not too fast and good routes.  If you can ever talk yourself into a weekend ride I bet you would get takers.

And giant sweet rolls.

Rosi in Houston retired upon reaching 80 years old and closed her restaurant.

There is a passage in the book I recall from reading it in high school where a specific maintenance task is stymied by a stuck screw.  He is trying to get a side cover off. I enjoyed the recognition that a small part can be very valuable. 

“Normally screws are so cheap and small and simple you think of them as unimportant. But now, as your Quality awareness becomes stronger, you realize that this one, individual, particular screw is neither cheap nor small nor unimportant.

“Right now this screw is worth exactly the selling price of the whole motorcycle, because the motorcycle is actually valueless until you get the screw out."
