I hate the winter

Man, I wish it wouldn't get any colder than tonight. Tonight was decent riding weather, but I don't think that I'd ride with it any colder out. I had on my lid, some gloves, jeans, and a sweat shirt under my jacket, and it was very comfortable. Let's all pray to our respective deities for more riding days this winter. Maybe we can even ask santa.

Winter's not so bad as long as it gets here (IMO). This cold crap without the snow sucks. Ideally I would be able to ride up til the snow flies and then ski til the weather's warm enough to ride. I'd also have to do those wicked powerslides on the big wheel on the icy roads, man, those were the days!

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!
