Yeah, that blows. I was lucky enough to be able to ride all the way up to new years day. At the beginning of the week they were talking about close to 60 and sunny for tomorrow, but as of today thats been downgraded to 47 and rain, then 20s for the foresee-able future.

Ah well, it is January.

Like happened to me today

Followed dozens of bikes back 110 km from sailing to home wishing I was on my bike!

Snow is a definite bummer FOG!

Cheers, SB

I wonder if spiked snow tyres would fit on a 1000F ?


We have the opposite extreme
Midsummer, 95% humidity, 47C on the gauge.
Too hot too ride after 10.30AM until maybe 15.30/
Leave at 5.30, back by 9.30
(if it's not raining )

I'm expecting a delivery or two from Motorcycle Superstore. Heated grips, some panniers, and Pit Bull. Perhaps I'll slap on the old gear while the weather's playing games with my riding ability.
