Port Dover Friday 13th Feb 2015

Well I was hoping I was going to add another ride to my collection of winter PD13's. Done November, December and January so far. Checking the forecast doesn't look like I'll be adding Feb. to my collection just yet. A high of -14C and overnight low of -29C! Anyone who goes is a better man than me (Harleys idling on trailers don't count). I went in Dec. '13 (-4 to -7C) and there were perhaps a dozen bikes there at lunch time. Oh well, we'll see what March looks like.

One of the busiest ever last summer... and several yrs before another summer date.

Next week... fuck that, not even in a car.

i like to be as adventurous as the next guy, but -22 and not getting out my driveway will definitely hinder my chances of getting there.

I'd ride my sled if I could figure out a route.

Unfortunately, the weatherman's forcasts have been right for the last week. It's -18C as I sit here and write this. Lovely and sunny, though! But I'm not equipped for this. Good luck to anyone that wants to give it a try.

I wonder if the Brave Knight Pirate made it to work or weather he's frozen solid on the side of the road somewhere?

The thermometer almost hit -8 this afternoon but I decided to run away and fight another day. I see that actually only one guy rode into Dover -on a Ural sidecar from St. Thomas.
