Cold enough to freeze the nuts off of the iron bridge here. Hope I'm not the only one sufferin'.

Yep, tough here too. 81 today and all the way down to 47 tonight. BUT when it's 95 and 95% humidity in August, I'll be envying you guys.

Witches who!

You can tell where your shorts come to in that kind of weather. Man you guys up there must just chomp at the bits waiting on some riding weather aye. One good thing, if you gotta garage, you can keep the Ole Steed in top notch condition.

I wouldn't want to be riding that at -40 either.

Feet are freezing, not even my slippies are doing a good job.

That reminds me....


Glad I am not an eskimo...I'd never survive!
