    Hi,

    That is a beautiful shot.



    I commute to work every day. It looks something like this:

    This video gets a little interesting at about 10:30.

    It was 50F this morning, not too bad. It was 44F the other day. The mid-to-high 30s is as cold as it will ever get here, for my commute anyway. At night it will get below freezing, but not too often.


    Thank you for your indulgence,

    BassCliff

    Planning on heading out tomorrow with my neighbor. Supposed to be in the 50's. Not bad, a December ride in Upstate NY!

    I went out yesterday with temps under 40 to test ride the Bandit's new brake rotors. Didn't stop for any pics though. You should always put the GS in the foreground and the ZRX or any other bike in the background for future pics!
    btw, 8C would be a balmy 46F, right?

    I'm regretting having stored mine already. It was nasty weather when when I put her up, then it got nice for 2 weeks. Oh well.

    Basscilff, nice lane splitting past a CHP at 11:03 in your vid! VT isn't quite so nice that.

    I do have the luxury of having a garage and keeping my bikes ready for riding throughout our winter. But I do have to work to keep the snow and ice clear on the driveway to have any chance of navigating the first 75 feet out to a clear, sun melted road!
