    Having had the flu for 4 days haven't been out but likely will this afternoon. My two bikes are insured 365 and it is seldom that a week goes by when I cannot ride. Getting too old to take the ST1100 out in the snow but the GS may be fun.

    The ST is very stable and effective so long as one is moving above a walking speed but a 28" inseam makes for challenges.

    The GS850 is much easier to handle at crawling speeds but maybe a 250 would be a more intelligent ride in snow?

    I rode yesterday - 28F here in Detroit.
    At work right now, logger on. Rode here today - high 30ies and sunny.

    I love riding year round. Keeps me NEAR sane.
    Some days I think I do it for "the look" I get from the neighbors.
    After seeing me ride in the cold they tend to keep their distance - not a bad thing.

    Hi,

    It was a balmy 51F for my commute this morning.

    We're due for a cold snap this weekend, into the 40s anyway. I like cold weather riding. I think my Jessie Blue likes it too.


    Thank you for your indulgence,

    Cool

    I rode Tuesday. I think it was my last ride of the year. The high today was a balmy 32* F, it snowed a little bit the night before last, so my driveway and the road out front now have ice slicks on them. If I can't get out of my driveway without it slipping out from under me, I'm not riding.

    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.

    I watched your ride to work video Cliff, I'm so sorry. If I ever get one of those video camera's I'll have to do one of my ride to work, a little more relaxing, it's one of the advantages of living in a small city. Trevor if you ever see a little red Kawasaki KH100 buzzing around town that would be me heading to work or doing errands, we'll have to connect one of these days.

    Yup that's me. Use it for work for the cheap insurance and free parking of course. I'll send you a PM with some info.

    This Sunday its supose to kiss 50' and be mostly sunny I think I'll hit the roads for a little jaunt. Just got to wash it now after every ride... They've been Brine-ing the roads. Such is the life of ridding all year round up here. I might take the 400! Just have to finish up some brake work...

    I would rather trust my bike to a "QUACK" that KNOWS how to fix it rather than a book worm that THINKS HE KNOWS how to fix it.
