East Coast Weather Today

Only saying.....Today, in early January, I am basking in the fact that it is 70 degrees and sunny here in the Charlotte NC area...So I wonder what's going on in my old Ohio stomping grounds and see it is 36 in Akron, and then I check Boston just for grins and it is also 70 degrees....Rather than analyze it, I am just gonna fire up the Rebel and take a pleasant Sunday afternoon country ride, and hope that all of those riders further north will be able to do likewise on this unseasonably warm day...

Ride on....

Grace + Peace, Bob

I'm well south of you, and it's now 47 degrees following the rough weather that moved through night before last. But it's supposed to get up to 75 later in the week. Unfortunately, it's supposed to rain too.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Just your luck to be much colder in your neck of the woods.
I just got back from a wonderful ride..I took a route that is not my usual and the change of scenery made it nicer. Must have seen three dozen bikers out riding...The Corbin seat and "far-forward" pegs made it super comfy...
The kid in me (what's left of him) is very happy..

It's warmed up a few degrees and I just finished repairing the rear turn signal wiring and replacing a broken bolt on the rear rack. Think the dog and I will go for a ride!

How do you keep the dog from falling off the bike when he/she rides?

He rides in a large rear rack I designed. Here are some pics from my album: https://www.hondarebelforum.com/memb...lbums5557.html

The rack is very well-designed and made..I am much impressed with how large your dog is. Good for you.

I didn't design it with carrying a dog in mind. If it isn't raining, I use the bike to carry things from the store. It's carried a 57 lb. bag of dog food, gallon of juice, and other stuff in one trip.

One day, I decided to see how the dog would take to it riding around the neighborhood. He loved it, and only jumped out once at low speed to chase a squirrel. Didn't hurt the dog, and he learned not to try and chase squirrels when riding! Since then, we ride within a 30 mile radius of the house, including a few miles of I-20. He gets excited when he sees me put on my riding gear.

Had Wirehaired Pointing Griffons for almost 30 years, but switched to German Wirehairs a while back, and that's what the dog in the pic is.
