My Wish

I wish I could ride all year round... I live in NY and after hurricane Sandy and this sudden drop in temp, it's getting pretty rough to keep riding in 30 degree weather. I wish I could ride all year round in 60+ degree weather rain or shine...

Who else is with me on this?

I'm in Ohio & I feel the same way. I work nights, the other day if I would have rode it was 29f when I got off of work. I think I have the cloths to make it in that weather but my truck looked to inviting . I'll get out this weekend, the weather is supposed to creep up into the 60's & NO rain. Lets keep our fingers crossed.

I am with ya. We got over a foot of snow during the last few days of October because of the storm. (not that it compares to the folks who caught the true wrath of the stom) Now temps are back up to normal but all the roads are covered in salt and gravel. Been riding my truck for a while now.

i'm the same way... i say "it's only TOO COLD when there's snow on the ground"

I know what you guys mean. We had a cold front come through today and it dipped down into the mid 60's. I actually put the liner in my mesh jacket.

Life is full of choices, there is still some room left in Florida, come on down!

Ride Safe,
Ken
