I concur. Winter sucks. Still never mind eh?

Oh - you can keep the ice. We had a bunch of snow dump here yesterday, that I can deal with - ice is a little more tricky.

Yeah man, just chill and except the frozen water from above! I feel so good right now, I think I'm going to run right outside and built a snow man. Then I'm going to join the nearest polar bear club and take a long dip in 33 degree water. The hell with the heater, open the windows and let the fresh air in. Turn off the refrigerator and open the door, were liven green for sure now. Wow, I feel better already and then..............................................................................I woke up!:sleeping::err:

Cheers
Jeff:motorbike2:

Winter

Yea, winter sucketh verily. I only had 4 riding days last week.

Riding day defined as 70+F and less than 40 percent chance

precip. Now, however, it is 45F headed to 26F tonight.

Do I need Stabil if I'm not riding until next weekend?

I feel ya, man. My Bonneville's been sitting up for over a month now. I finally gave in and ran the gas out of it the other day (closed the petcock). We need to start a Triumph commune in Mexico or something. Even with a heated vest, enough is enough.

Winter? We're not getting any winter here, you insensitive clods!
It is a bit chilly but the coldest I met was like 39F or something. And where's the rain? I haven't seen a real winter storm since 1987!

I suspect politicians are the main cause. Weather's been deteriorating even faster since they teared down the wall!

I WANT MY WINTER BACK!

...there's no pleasing some people. :p

It's been below freezing for some time up in northern New Mexico. And the roads really aren't clear from the last storm yet. And I'm on the east coast now. So no riding for HiDesert for a while. :mad:

Jeffro, I feel for you. This morning, the temps in north Alabama dipped to about 17. of curse, it's been in the mid 70s for the past week or so, and due to get back into the 50s and 60s for the rest of the week.

We here in the South do have one custom that may seem strange to you. When the weather and temperature are as you described, we put on long-sleeved shirts and jackets. Maybe y'all in the North should try this instead of T-shirts. It might make the winter a little more bearable.

It was a brisk 39F on the RIDE in to work (not to pour salt on the wound) this morning. Might be a little damp to ride tomorrow though.

It has been a cold and snowy December for a change. Even though it is not riding weather I have learned to embrace and appreciate winter (after all I do CHOOSE to live in Minnesota) and it does seem to make the time go by fairly quickly.

Of course spring comes and its hells bells 'til winter again!!!:)
