Here I am on a weekend off of work, and the sky is pissing 40 degree rain. No riding for me... Mother nature can suck it.

Sorry,

Work on your bike, mess around on UER, Craigs list or Ebay for K75 parts, Pull your seat off and get it re-covered while your not ridin'

I don't even want to tell you about the weather here!!

Also, I was wrong, my Speed Triple turns 5000RPM @ 80MPH not 90MPH. Funny thing on the way to work, cars will still pass me, even if I'm goin' 80 or 90???

Is everybody running that late??

I'm glad I got some good trail riding in last Sunday.

Could be the last riding of the year here...

I ride in the rain (Thank you textile gear). The thing that annoys me is the water droplets on my visor obstruct my vision and the wind cuts through the leather gloves.




I make love the same way I resolve arguments. With my fists.

My winter riding gloves have a squeege sown onto the left index finger for use as a windshield wiper, I thought it was a pretty handy idea.

During a particularly violent fall while surfing, I managed to get tangled up with the board, and took the sharp side of the fin to the top of my foot, it cut thru my surfing booty and slightly cut the top of my foot. I guess the pressure must have been plenty, as it took 2 years before I got the feeling back in my big toe... Nerve and tendon damage sucks for a long time.

Heal up well.

I ride rain or shine and have the gear to accomadate. I put my bike into storage the second week of December (in New Hampshire) and pulled it back out in late February. Riding in the 20's isn't toooo bad.

When I had a dirtbike I would go out when it was below zero or freezing rain. Just have to dress properly.
