    Ugh....it was only a matter of time

    This being my first riding season, every experience has been new. For the first time this year, on a day I wanted to ride, I could not because of the weather. Watched the news this morning, showed light right with temps in the upper 30's. I thought cool, I nice chilly ride into work. Throw on the winter gear, open the garage door and see light snow coming down and sticking on my car and drive way I feel as though I have been cheated out of some money...damn you evil weather man. Guess I will have to settle for a day here and there from now on until spring. Only 30 more years and I can retire to winter somewhere down south (anywhere but Florida).

    It isn't what you ride, it is if you ride

    Yes, very odd as our average is in the 60's this time of year. It looks like tomorrow will be the same, right on the edge of freezing temps, with continued rain. Changed the engine and gearbox oil tonight, so I am riding it tomorrow for sure...just hope I don't get stranded at work

    Oh yeah, I am aware of you all you crazy nuts...plan on joining the ranks this year as well...common sense is trying to kick in when I see snow and ice. Makes me long for a nice day of down pouring rain in the 80's

    yeah, its threatening snow here tonight as well, i probably would have taken the bike anyway if not for the monsoon i woke up to this morning, on days like this i'm not so saddened by having to take the cage as i am worried that my bike is gonna blow over in the wind while i'm at work
