That will have to do.
My standards a bit lower this year. I am waiting to get outta Dodge and head south. I have tickets for the Moto GP a week from this Sunday. Looks like there will be a window of opportunity late next week.

Funnily enough my temp limit was lower than that, but I'm all pissy and fed up with winter now, so it can just damn well warm up a bit.

My 'lectrics will deal with lower temps, but shit I am just getting fed up with wearing all that junk.

At least I got to ride for pie last weekend. That was nice.

I dont mind 30F but I hate all the cumbersome jackets and pants that I have. Takes a bit to get it all on or off. Hard to turn your body and head when needed to!

My standards hit deperate mode last week. I rode to work on Wednesday the 3rd, when I left the house it was 16 degrees ( my wife and kids thought I had fully lost it ). The ride home felt like mid-summer at 48 degrees with the extra layers. But hot damn it was riding!

I rode to the Delta Diner on march 1st, and although the PBLT was awesome as always, I froze my ass off. So I've been a little less gung ho since then.

I did manage to reattach my ass upon warm up, but still.

This early march type weather needs to just piss off.

Sugru?

Anyone have some Sugru they're not using? I need some to attach a Sena to my helmet. Of course, being the procrastinator that I am, I don't have time to order it online and wait for delivery.

In other news, I got a good deal on a discontinued Shoei RF1100 from Bob's.

No, but that reminds me, I need to order some. That is great stuff to have on hand.

Of High Importance

MeTV (KSTC) is showing "The Mole People" (1958) at 9:00 PM Central tonight.

I think no more need be said about this

The classics never get old or lose their air of authenticity.
