Cool Is anyone else tired of snow?

I can't wait for the weather to start getting warmer. I have about a foot of snow on the ground and it's snowing again. But it's going to warm up a bit this weekend so I'm told. It just seems like it's been a very long winter. I haven't been able ride since November and I am really looking forward to getting the bike back out. But I have been able to get a few things done to my bike. So far this winter I have added a sissybar, luggage rack, Kurykan ISO chrome flame grips and I just got my Mustang seat on. Although I have not been able to ride, just setting on the Mustang seat feel incredible!!!!! That was the best $362.00 I have spent. It makes the stock seat feel like concrete! I can't wait to take it for a long ride and see just how comfortable it really is. And tomorrow I should be getting my Cobra freeway bar.
I know spring is on it's way, but it can't get here fast enough!!

I agree, I'm ready to break out the scoot soon!! We still got over a foot of snow here but that storm coming up the East coast isn't going to touch us. Going to be in the 40's this weekend. Just warm enough to break her out!!
Ride safe.

Hi guys..Tell me something..its been staying around 4-5 degrees celsius here in Atlantic Canada...the roads have been dry and I'm very tempted to go pick up my new bike and go for a rip.The roads aren't white with salt stains and you can't see sand and salt on alot of the main roads but how can you tell if the salt has been washed away off the roads so it doesn't get on the bike.I understand that it doesn't take a whole lot to make a mess of the exhaust and underneath.Thanks

Roger

Rog: I can't speak for you but I wouldn't, I will wait until it warms up and the salt is off the road. I store my bike in a heated garage and do not start it during storage. If your storage is not heated and it been running you can expect some consensation . You will have to give it a super cleaning to get all the salt off. I have 2002 1500 and it looks like it just came out of the crate. First to put it away in the fall and the last one out in the spring.You can't enjoy a ride in this weather

Still a patch of snow on the north side of my house. Been there since December. This has seemed like a very long winter, even my wife has gotten the winter blues this year and it usually does not bother her. We didn't get as much snow as we usually do, but it was colder and stuck around a long time. Rain/Snow tomorrow, but nice weekend forcasted. I think the worst is over, however we've gotten snow in April before. I did get a ride in last weekend... and for you green thumbs out there I also planted peas.
