Got up Friday, ate a large breakfast, and got ready to go to work -- 3 degrees Celsius on the thermometer (BRRRRR). Sure to be ice on the road down in the valley as it rained last night. Ah, well. Suited up with extra layers of wool under the Joe Rocket jacket, polar hiking pants, Polartec neck guard, Teknic roadracing boots, and barely adequate winter gloves. Did slide across the inevitable ice, but not too bad. Was 15 miles down the road before it occurred to me that I have a truck -- this brought a smile to my face while I gripped the cylinder head with both hands at a red light, which didn't last long enough for the heat to soak through the gloves. Just another commute in paradise. No DTs for me as it doesn't snow very often in Malibu and I always ride to work.
If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

I was so excited this spring when it started to get above 0 degrees Celsius that I had to go for a ride. It was 3 degrees when I headed out. It was cold but I'll do it again in the spring. Probably won't be as bad as the niner has a little wind protection.
It was weird in PA on Friday it was rainy and around 42 degrees and I saw more bikes on the road with their riders getting soaked than I have seen in a couple of months ,I thought I missed a bike holiday or something.
No riding here. Bike is stored. I have an 8 x 10 on the wall I stare at all day! LOL! I also have it on my screen saver and even though it's an old game I still play Road Rash to get my riding aggressions out.
