    Default Less than a month to the season!

    Last year I took my first picture on a proper ride at 19th of April. Its inching forward fast. Outside my window now I see snow...

    I haven't gotten my projects done (scared to visit my grandparents), and the seasons sort of sprung up on me. I hope it will be early so I can get it over here.

    Hopefully this season will have more border crossings and a trip up north.

    How are ya'll? Did your season start or still waiting?

    Well, those of us below the artic circle usually can ride year round.

    We NEVER run into reindeer around here because we know the reason for the season. By the time you finish reading this, your riding season will be over. Sorry.

    My season is shorter, but on the flip side I have sun all night for several months, and I get to ride in northern lights. Being able to ride all night is a huge advantage- And where do you have better scenery?

    Raindeer are okay animals, they are usually easy to spot since they usually come in big groups. Last year a sheep tried to kill me several times and I got a moth in my eye.

    I see allready some days where I could probably ride, Ive seen three or four bikes out, but there is tons of salt and still ice at places. I won't take the risk though. I need several days of non freezing nights before I take my first ride.

    Its now 10pm, and 0.6c outside, so barely above freezing. But5 we are getting there.

    I sleep at night. Scenery? It's everywhere, and here in Arizona rivals Norway if you understand the state's diversity of terrain. Where else can you ride from high deserts to Pine forests to vast lakes in a few hours (probably several places, but you get my meaning). If I want to ride at night, the temperatures here make that an easy deal.

    Night rides? Those here who know me know my penchant for night rides.
    The season is upon us here in N.J., USA. The winter flew by in a bit of a fog. I still need to replace my chain. The new one is on the bench in the garage.

    When consulting the magic 8 ball for advice, one must first ask it "will your answers be accurate?"

    I rode in this AM in a huge Snow squall... TCS and ABS were working over time on the Tracer.

    I'm getting out now. I think I have maybe a 500-1000 miles so far.

    Winter is rough but I just love the riding around here. I'm back on daily commuting but it can stop at any point. Like this Thursday we have a foot of snow moving in with temps dropping to low teens (Fahrenheit).
