It's cold outside

I want to roll up to a starbucks on a fine Italian motorcycle, take my jacket off and sit outside enjoying a nice latte under a moonlit 70 degree night, with like minded friends. Damn I hate winter.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

One of the main reasons I put my house move on hold (other than the accident) is to look south... I have a feeling I might be moving to warmer climates in my near-is future... Not only am I bummed about not being able to ride, but I just HATE going out in this stuff...

What is that like? Do you feel the metal shrinking, or getting cold inside your leg?

When I'm outside for an extended amount of time, yeah, I can feel it get "cold". It's in my lower leg, and so is more susceptible to the cold. It doesn't hurt or anything (so far), I can just tell it's a bit cooler than the rest of my leg

I look forward to winter every year. Myself and my family have a blast in winter. Every year we take a winter vacation to the north woods to hit the snowmobile trails and go boarding/skiing. Good eats/drinks up there too. Summer is great but I'd get bored if it was always hot out. It's nice to have a change.

I moved the bike out so I could move the car in for an oil change. Left it out there because I have to do 2 oil changes today and it started snowing so now my bike has snow all over it and I still need to do the 2nd oil change. Damn snow.

We are having a wicked ice storm down here in Macomb. For the past 2 hours I have been watching cars attempt to drive up the embankment to the apartment complex. Cars are scattered like grains of salt. I'm literally stranded in my apartment. lol.
