Am I the only one that does this?

From time to time I get the urge to go for a ride VERY LATE AT NIGHT, even into the early hours of the a.m.. Does anyone else do this??

I used to all the time, and now that i am where it is warmer out late at night i am starting to ride late again. Love night time riding, low traffic if any, just you, the bike, and peace and quiet.

I love riding at night but only on the interstate. Too many little furry creatures that like to wander out into the roads where I'm at. The interstate is wide open, less crowded and brightly lit. I HATE riding on Friday and Saturday night though, everyone you pass seems to feel the need to have a fast and the furious flash back and wants to "race"

I actually just got back from a ride, where I saw like 2 different groups one of 3 and one of 6, sportbikes out riding. I was solo though.

Not in the middle of the nite, but early in the morning before everyone is up is my favorite....the only thing you have to watch out for is the cops, lots of them around early in the morning.

I do the early morning thing. The weather is usually cooler with less bugs and WAY less traffic.

I try to stick to the day light hours for riding the 10 cause of deer and such + the headlights dont keep up at the pace I like to ride on the twisties. A nice slow cruise on the meanstreak is good at night though.
