Snow Wing

Couldn't believe what I saw on the way to work this morning...16 degrees, snowing hard, about 3" on the ground, roadways 100% ice and snow covered....

Sure, he has training wheels, but still here I am grinding along in my 4x4 truck and this dude is RIDING HIS MOTORCYCLE!

83 today, 82 the next 3 days. And we had a 4.5 last week; rocked the floor a little bit, but I didn't even bother going outdoors. Just waited for the next one, but no after shocks.

Just got home after an evening out downtown, almost froze my face just walking a couple of blocks to the truck. Supposed to be a windchill of 25 below in the morning, think I'll get the FJR out and ride to work.

Hey, it's gotta be warmer than the 919, right?

but if you freeze the boys off whatcha goin do then???

maybe they can use those silicon fake ones like they do when the neuter dogs...
