    I'm not with you on this one, it's beautiful out here on the dry side. A bit crisp but truly beautiful. The snow is shimmering in the sunlight like a million little diamonds on the ground and everyone knows diamonds are a girls best friend. :wings

    Winter makes spring that much sweeter! :clap

    Still riding here, can't really go anywhere though

    GP seems to be a snow free zone. Snow's everywhere else, and we get rain, which then turns to solid ice at night

    Got caught on the bike in the ice few days ago. Could hardly stand or walk, but my tourances gripped it like it was glue

    Bike's tucked safely away. Skis have been out and in use. Winter is great! It really is all about options. Snow just means playing a different game!

    I don't really mind the snow, but this extended freezing weather sucks...my house isn't insulated for this crap.

    My electric bill is gonna be ridiculous.

    I have been riding every day, to commute, and for fun. Some people have poked fun at Me (all in good nature) because My Ural has a useable top speed of 65 , but I havent seen another bike out in at least 8 days. Guess it is My turn to poke.

    I've seen two other bikes out besides mine. A TS-185 (WB-PDX's) and a 'Busa. Go figure.

    Since I'm stuck indoors, or at least the bikes are:

    Repairs are underway. Upgrades and farkles will follow after Christmas.

    Plans for a spring epic ride to Baja are underway. I need to schedule vaca with the boss. And my employer....

    I reread my old ride reports of trips past. MEmmmmmries.....
