Default Almost lost my mind...

I caught myself giving serious consideration to buying a trailer, loading up Sersi and driving to the nearest state without snow for a quick ride... A shot of Crown calmed me somewhat (tho that Kendon is still very tempting).

Who else in the Northeast is starting to lose it?

No trailer, but maybe if the car and pickup weren't in the garage I could ride in circles for a bit. Nah, guess I'll just wait for spring.

It was an unusual 58*F here today but mine stayed in the basement. I told myself when I put her down there in November she wasn't coming back out until April, regardless of the weather. I still have some off-season routine maintenance to do.

The temp is supposed to get down to 2*F tomorrow, so I will be back in Old Man Winter mode again soon.

If it was 58 and the roads clear, I'd have been riding to work at least.

I feel you Kuro, I live in Pittsburgh, so we are prolly getting the same weather.

Every week I look at the 14 day outlook and hope, maybe there will be a 40 degree day or something, nope. Sucks, all I wanna do is ride and all it is is crap roads with ice, and salt and cinder and bull$T$%. Its frustrating as hell. Hell man Ill even take high 30's since work isnt that far but damn. I keep telling myself in a month or 5 weeks it will be tolerable...Id love to live somewhere yearround with nice weather, actually considered it agian.

Right now, I'd take the current temp and no chit on the road. Heated handgrips and layers would get me to work just fine :-)

Over the last four days, it's been spectacular here - a welcome break from sub-10 degree weather we've had. I have had to disassemble the F3 to tune the carbs following their successful reassembly during the winter break. I will be fine-turning this weekend on the pilot screws.

This is, sadly, just in time for the 60-degree temps to give way to more snow and cold.
