Don't be a pussy, some Canuck just finished his Canada Coast to Coast today, arriving in St. Johns, Newfoundland. He left Vancouver Island January first. Look in Great White North.

I hate winter too... sure, I put on a brave face by taking the bike out on the occasional "nice" day- but it's no substitute for nice weather & the smell of squished bugs cooking on the engine...


This slippery & cold winter crap...




Is a cheap substitute for this... nice warm traction action.


I think I'll bring the bike into the house now... sure, if I want a little bit of


That guy- Paul I think his name is- that just rode across Canada in January should get an award...

Let me add some clarification, I want to ride DIRT, in the mountians that are 45 minutes from my house... I don't want to ride the pave. Rigth now my mountains are snowbound.

street riding is OK, dirt is muuccch better!

Ya well try 2 feet of snow at my shop door and I don't live up in the mountains. at lest you can ride the pave if you want to. here its 5 months of ice and snow. I hope to have a bike stashed down there some day so I can ride in the winter maybe in texes or something. well I think its time for some meds now.

Cool2 well, maybe it was only pavement...

but I'll rub it in anyway: yesterday's ride was a blast. Cold and rainy, but the darien suit and the heated grips fixed all that.

It's not the Cold

It's not the cold that is stopping my riding, it's the salt covering all these roads. I have seen what salt does to a motorcycle over a few years--it ate my Honda 350XL into a pitted rusty pile. I did try cleaning it but that salty liquid got into everything and ate everything.

Do I need a full fairing sport bike for my winter riding? Would TKC 80 tires work on a sportbike. I think I could get one cheap and make it a salt bike. Then I could cledan it off in a carwash with a hose (Not going to do this but I am getting very antsy to ride today--it's 18 degrees Fahrenheit but sunny and still. I could ride--but NO!)

So go!







Take action against winter. Aren't humans the master of their environment?
