What a bunch of shite this global warming mess is. I tried to enjoy myself riding through the forest today but it was way down in the 50s. I had long johns, a thermal, a thin face mask on, my thick leather jacket with the Thinsulate zipped in, even my full face helmet on. I still got cold. Can't wait till winter is over, this 50 degree weather garbage is for the birds.

Yeah, must be rough... it was -10 degrees F at my house yesterday, and the 2 feet of snow we already have, is going to get another foot tomorrow night. My bike's been on the battery tender since just after Thanksgiving!

My 260 rear tire and 12" shocks and forward controls made it miserable too since I couldn't turn at all and could only ride in a perfectly straight line. (sarcasm)

Are you kiddin? That's balmy. I'd ride in 57 degrees with a long sleeve t-shirt and a half face.

I would be happy if I could get the garage that warm! Get electrics - make 50 seem like 70. You gotta ride enough for the rest of us stuck in the cold!

Hell, it was 38 degrees when I was blasting up and down the local airstrip at 120 mph on sunday. Vrod was really impressing the sportbikes....lol. Then we took a short ride, and there was still snow off the sides of the road. 50s would hve been great!

To all of you that own PC's, If you hold down the [ALT] key and key in 248 on the numeric keypad, you will get a Degree sign (°) <--- like that. Looks nicer than an "*".

It felt like it hit the mid seventys here today.
It rained like all hell for a few hours before dawn,then again this evening.Put down a few inches.This time of year,after a rain it gets cold.We'll probably see the 30's to mid 60's for a few days now.The cold has really made my hands hurt this year but once I get my garage heated up and the humidity cooked down some,my hands are OK.
I haven't ridden much at all this winter.Just a few short bursts here and there.Enough to keep the batterys up.Soon as I get the new skins on my 07,I'll be beatin on it pretty regular again.
