The first day of spring

Officially is March 20th. I can hardly wait for the warmer temperatures.

Put some "studded" ice-racing tires on, and....

-

When I ice-raced near Hawkesbury I would ride to the course on the Ottawa River (my farm was a few miles away) just up-stream of the dam at the border w/ QB. One time, when everyone else was loading their bikes onto trailers, I decided to see how FAR I could 'pull' a wheelie, so I wheelied across the river then turned around and wheelied back. The Ottawa is around 1/4 to 1/2 mile wide there.

Sounds like maybe we should call a wahmbulance! If you want to ride in the winter- do what I do- RIDE IN THE WINTER. Layer up, and short of ice or snow on the roads, have at it. I've only missed/opted out of 3 days this winter, due to ice on the road.

I might have to wait to ride due to snow, but I don't think I could live where you get summer all year round'. It's just an excuse to buy more toys like snowmobiles and quads. I still have a solid 3'' in the driveway with about 3 feet covering the bike, soooo yeah I am waiting till a few 40 days come our way.
