Only ~25 more snow storms to go till the Versys comes out of hibernation......... Snow may be up to second story of house by then.

Wow! That qualifies as really fat snow. Now I know why I don't live in Ottawa during the winter!

SHAME, SHAME guys! (You know who YOU are...!) Here are a few from a 150 miler I did yesterday.... When I found the snow/ ice on the road, I continued just enough to "pull a 180", then back thru it and cut out my plans to ride up to the 6,500' level.... (I know, I know - chicken... !)

Default Used to ride in New England

Christmas Day ride on the Old Brick Road, 12 miles of soft sand and the longest remaining section of brick pavers in Florida. It used to be the Old Dixie Highway, the superhighway of its day ... in 1914. Located south of Palatka off CR-13.

Default Riding conditions?

Unseasonably warm and dry, I'll take it. Got to take a 60 mile ride and try out my new Oxford heated grips and Barkbusters, oh yeah and take care of some more of the "break in" miles.
