I tried to get my bike out onto the street today. But the snow wouldn't let it move much. Whenever I moved the bike, it'd make a little ridge of snow in front of the front tire. The rear was happy following the path the front cut for a few feet. I decided to ride the bike out of the yard like a true tree palaver. Good thinking that. After I started the bike and the motor was warmed up, I hopped on. The bike slipped to the right and the rear tire dug a trench in my lawn and then slewed left cutting zigzag lines across the grass. Only then did it dawn on me what I was doing was essentially stupid. Tomorrow I'm shoveling my way to the road! Got to get ready for my annual Christmas Day ride! What cabin fever?
The only things obstructing riding here at the moment are holiday traffic and the number of police that are on the roads to control it. 25°C & sunny.
Went for a ride yesterday seeing as I'm on holidays myself then went to the bike shop and bought oil and filter to give the Speedie a Xmas present.
everyone just needs to vent now and then. Don't know how you guys do it, not being able to ride for months at a time. I go crazy when it rains all weekend. Even in the worse time of year when it's hotter than hell and humidity at 90%+ we can ride very early in the morning or late in afternoon. Guess the downside is we can ride year round, but don't necessarily have the great roads you folks do up North. For me I must ride about 30 miles to get away from the traffic and into the country. That distance will continue to increase as more development takes place just north and east of us.
Lee, you started it!:FunnyFace: I'm Zenning my way to a more positive winter me. On second thought, let me go out to the garage, start up the bike and suck on the fumes awhile.:wacko: I'll be able to last, I know it............................I must resist! :brick:
