Goin' riding again today.
It's 26 degrees with a high of 36 today and snow tonight.
I don't stop 'till the roads are real crappy.
I ride around 20K a season and we have a SHORT season.

I don't like the hot weather.
I don't take the heat well,I've had melanoma from the sun.
I like it when it's in the 60's & 70's the best.
When it's hot I am too tempted to NOT wear my protective gear and I've been in many crashes and know the value of body armor.
I'll bet mister pig wishes that he had body armor on when he crashed.
That and a good helmet (not a half helmet) have saved my ass several times.

Tug Hill - I think that's in New York right? I always ride until the snow flies too - last winter Igot to stay out until November 29, this year had to park on November 7th. Sure am hoping for an early Spring - its been snowing here every day for the last week!

Nice pix, as long as the pavement is wet and not icy looks ok. We are completely frozen up here in the great white north!!
