WTF is up with this weather anyways? It was 14 degrees F a couple of days ago. I am so fired up about getting back on a bike, and Mother Nature has been a Mother f---er! It ought to be 55-60 degreese where I live. Both bikes have been waiting patiently in the basement for 3 months now.
The 929 has a brand new set of Power Pilots that need a good scuffing. The 919 has a new K+N and a new 15t front sprocket. Did any of you make any changes?

I hear ya... Janaury was 30-50 here in Wisconsin... and finally now we are seeing single digit temps...

Not sure if its global warming or just some ocean jet stream thing that swayed the temps for a month...

I have to stop looking at bikes... I will be on a new 1 this spring at this rate!

It's nice here....lows in the high 30's then upper 60's for the high.
Did a nice weekend ride..a little cool but the 20-25 knot wind sucked ass.
Nothing like riding into the wind doing 80....

So, yeah.... I'm hoping it warms up soon and rains for a week straight to clean the roads.

Gotta get rear tire on the 6, fork seals done on the 929, tires & throttle on the rc... and a good detailing to all. But too damn cold to go out in garage. Hasn't been above 30, but calling for 40's by thurs., and of course teens for the weekend. :mad:

New Racetech 1kg springs in the 919 forks here. It was fairly tolerable here the last few weeks with temps in the 40s then starting last Friday it was in the teens with a dose of snow and ice. C'mon March.




Oh, yeah, the Wrist Twisters stickers added an extra pony or two!
