Versys on record snow day.

In McKinney, (Dallas TX area), we got a record snow fall of 10-12". Good ridin' weather!

I have family in Arlington. They are transplanted Canadians and I must say they are loving it. Enjoy it while it last's and welcome to my world up here.

Falling down is your bodies way of saying you just screwed up.

Getting a kick of everyone complaining about snow. Here school does not call a delay until we have 10" on the ground and temps are well below 0. We had 18" in Oct and Dec saw temps of -13F. Jan and Feb have been dry so there's not much snow on the ground right now. The last big one dumped 48" in a day and a half on my house in Mar 03. This is an El Niño year, most likely we'll get hammered in spring.

So did you actually ride in the snow? were the roads covered?

I tried that once on a dirt bike but it didn't work too well.

I ride every day rain or shine and I did ride yesterday. But I didn't ride the day we got all the snow. My wife was holding a knife to my privates; she said I couldn't. I have ridden on the very few snow/sleet days that we have had. If it is one of the two days a year that Dallas gets just slick ice on the road, I don't ride.

For us, this kinda snow is a BFD! But I'm not complaining. I think it's cool! It's all gone now.

Second that on the Texas snow and people complaining. The news here acts like it's the end of the world for everyone.

Drake - too much black ice still on my rides into work. Maybe tomorrow will finally be the day to get back on and ride.
