a chilly morning

Had to scrape the frost off of the windscreen and the seat this morning, but couldn't find the defrost switch.

Ouch! Cold in SD is it? Cheer up spring isn't far off.

Hope you were able to avoid them. That has always been a pet peeve of mine - scrape ALL of your windows!

If you upgraded to the cold weather package, the defrost switch is right next to the AWD button--very convenient.

The pumpkins on our porch took a beat of a beating last night as I think we were in the low 20s.

Nice job braving the cold!

Looking at the photo it also looks as though it fell over during the night.

I always plan on stupid, this young "lady" was in too much of a hurry to scrape ANY of the windows.

You don't have a cover for your nice bike?
