You need to get yourself a nice car that you will not mind driving for eight plus months out of the year, or move to a warmer climate.

Nothing better then comfort of heated leather seats and climate control on a 15 degree day.

I rode to the suspension seminar at Safety First Racing, also back around Jan 24th.

The looks you get are hilarious. I'll ride on the weekend, but not to work...I just dont trust my battery in the cold.

Definitely riding this Saturday.

I've had the itch for a long time, but I am too much of a pussy to ride in this weather. For now I just go out to the garage, sit on the bike and day dream.

Sunday should be warm enough, but I don't know if I will feel like cleaning off all the salt afterwards!

I was wondering who rode the Triple that day. Isn't it a pain in the ass trying to avoid all the potholes? About a block down from Safety 1st the roads seem like lunar craters. My car was in pain driving over the holes.

Not this week, but I rode on Sunday around the block to warm the bike up, then went to my buddies place for the superbowl.
I'll prob ride to school tomorrow, and maybe locally on Sat/ Sun rain depending.

I may go out for a little bit Friday. Most likely taking the Buell, that is after I replace the oil pressure sending unit. Maybe I'll swing by your area and see if I can figure out where you live.

This time of year is harsh on equipment...... the fine dust of salt gets on everything
