Default Damn winter!

Soooo....parts of Minnesota got over 2 inches of snow Monday night/Tuesday morning.

That sucks. Time to break out the snowmobile I guess.

I usually ride through the winter if the roads aren't too bad, but with all the ice/gravel/salt/$hit it doesn't happen much.

Maybe I'll just use the winter to tinker on the R5 a bit more.

PA is having some weird ass weather right now. It's nearly the middle of October and it's 80 out right now.

Sometimes it will get in the low 60s here and the sun will go behind a cloud for a little while!

I'll ride a few times in the winter, but not often since it's much more likely a cage will slide on the road and take out my bike. Midwest winters is why I own an on-demand 4WD.

it's been getting back into monsoon here, went riding the other day between showers but I think it's going to be wet and nasty for the next 7 or 8 months. I get out for an hour or too as much as I can but winter it's dark by 4, 40*s and wet most of the time so it's time to see if my fat ass still fit's in the bottom of my 'stitch suit...
