What's stopping you riding today?

I know most of us would ride every day if we could but often don't get the chance. If you're anything like me there are days you have to drag your butt out of bed and force yourself to get out there. Sometimes beds nice! I do find the days I can't ride are the days I'm jumping out of skin to get on.

So what's stopping you riding today?

For me I had my wisdom teeth out Thursday so I'm still on pain killers and legally can't drive. But after the horrid ride on Wednesday I need to fix my Ferrari! ( prin's small red and FAST)

Hmmmm, -10 but windchill at about -30, blowing snow & too darn much of it. I try to ride for enjoyment, not hypothermia. Oh & I had to work at 3 pm, so I would've had it even colder in the morning if I wanted to sneak in a ride.

The Daytona 500, which got rained out. Had I known it was going to be postponed I would have rode today.

My husband's Godchild had a bridal shower, I couldn't think of how I could get out of it. I did leave when they started playing those ridiculous games though!
