I know it might be colder other places but it's 25 degrees with a wind out of the N.E. this evening here at the house.
I wish my Canadian friends would keep their wind to themselves.:confused:

sorry to hear that your riding days may have ended for the year ron. my 1200 wing and 450 nighthawk have been in hibernation for about a month and the 1500 wing is at the dealer having the bank angle sensor replaced, its still under warranty. i probally won't get it back for two weeks and i don't think i'll have warm weather for the ride home

Not to gloat or anything, but the temperatures are in the 70’s down here. A front will go through on Thanksgiving dropping the highs down to the 50’s for a couple days. Sorry, I guess that is gloating.

Yeah Mark, It kind of is but that's ok. Us "Yanks" would do it to if we lived down there.

It's a mis-spelling. He's a " Supper Moderator " in charge of what's dished out.
That may be Chopin. So in that case "NO Soup for you!"

We're getting there. Highs this week in the 40's and it's probably downhill from there. After the oil is changed the Wing goes to bed until late March. Sleep tight my love....

Well the weather turned during the night. Yesterday 35 MPH winds are down to 5-10 MPH "Oh" and the temp has also changed from yesterday's 20 at this time it's now 14 degrees.
Come on guys no gloating, how about a little sympathy here. I know you can do it, you know, stuff like " So sorry, To bad, Wish we had some of that weather, sorry you can't get the Wing out for a ride. You know stuff from the heart.:eek:
See you later.

So sorry, too bad, glad I don't have any of that weather, sorry I'm going for a ride today. All straight from the heart.
Actually you live in a beautiful part of the country. I hope to ride US 2 from the Mackinac Bridge in Michigan all the way to Everett, Washington one day. We all have to put up with something for where we live. I know a lot of people who do not ride down here in July/August because it is too hot and humid.

Yeesh, now the wind is our fault too. The Alberta Clipper invades the lake region of the northern States,but it's really the remnants of an Arctic high marching down. Brace yourselves boys and girls, it was -34.7c (-30f) at CYEG this morning, and it could be colder tonight. Those lovely cold air masses have a tendency to slide south, so keep the woolies handy. Darn near froze my hiney off hunting yesterday.

Crownfire: A few years ago we rode 2 east from Washiong ton over the Mac. Great ride. We are about 90 miles north of Everett about 3.5 miles from the Canadian Border. When you get out this way let us know and we'll put on the coffee and Burgers. Will even throw in the .50 cent tour.
