It's Been A Nice Ride

Looks like the honeymoon is over here in the Northeast...after several months of above average temperature and not a lot of rain, the weather is catching up to us. Next few days are calling for clouds and rain..then temps falling into the teens and low 20's for a while. I don't mind riding in the 30's and above, but once it dips below freezing and the ice starts to accumulate on the roads, it's pretty much over for me.
Oh well, guess it had to become winter at some point in time...Still, it's a depressing thought....

I'll take it though...
Last night I worked in the garage until the wee hours without running the heater. Sweet! And a few times, I actually opened the door to listen/watch the rain. A man and his bike...a garage...and a Guinness. It almost doesn't get any better than that.

Last night hit a low of -15f here. So, as I was shoveling the 8+ inches of snow outta the drive way, I started the LT in the garage. First try after sitting for about 3 weeks. Great machine.

Let 'er run at idle until she came up to temp (about 30 minutes), then while on the centerstand, put 'er in 1st for about 10 minutes to spin up the tranny and final drive. Spread some dead dino juice around a bit. Then back on the tender...

What brings it all together is that fridge sitting in the corner, with that Guinness inside. So cold that there's ice in the bottle! Yup Joe, it doesn't get any better than that!

Guinness on the garage floor?! Not in the freezer, ice cold, where it belongs? That's Guinness abuse!

Really? Well don't tell the Irish because over there they sell Guiness extra cold in the pubs. The difference between it and "regular" Guiness? Well, it's colder! Of course maybe that is all BS for the tourists...


"Pioneered in 1998, our smoother, colder GUINNESS® Draught Extra Cold is the coolest thing on the bar. Experience the same powerful surge and settle that gives GUINNESS® Draught beer its uniqueness… in a crisper, colder form.

Using the same classic recipe as GUINNESS® Draught, GUINNESS® Draught Extra Cold passes through our Coldflow supercooler en route to the bar. The result is a GUINNESS® Draught that’s served 3°C cooler. With an initial malt and caramel flavour, cooler GUINNESS® Draught Extra Cold finishes with less bitterness than classic GUINNESS® Draught beer. Chilly, isn’t it?

3.5°C of Preparation
GUINNESS® Draught Extra Cold is best served at around 3.5°C (38.3°F) - that’s 2.5°C (4.5°F) or so colder than GUINNESS® Draught. Like its traditional sibling, it’s served with the legendary two-part pour. First, tilt the glass to 45 degrees and carefully pour until three quarters full. When settled, fill the glass to the brim."

MY Guinness (operative word "MY") is kept between 45° and 55° in a nice cozy dark corner in my garage. When it gets too cold, quite simply, it does NOT taste as good...ahem...in my expert opinion.



And just as a reminder...

Umm...hello! It was a natural evolution! When it gets too icy and snowy to ride, there's only one thing left to do. FARKLIZE! And whilst farklizing, there's only two choices of beverage to consume. Coffee or Guinness.

So much to learn grasshopper. But that's OK. We're here for you.

I dunno, Larry. Maybe folks like talking about beer more than winging about the cold and ice. Or maybe it's Just Joe.

Hey Ken, speaking of KA pussies: it was 5 degrees F when I got home to Lancaster this morning. It was 30 degrees F at the end of my shift in Sylmar last night!

I kept tapping my thermometer as it kept going lower and lower. I'm really hoping to get some of this global warming over here in a hurry--please!

Larry,

I fight the winter blues with the health club. Don't let Joe and his beer dreams add inches to your waist. Joe is the master of thread-hi-jacking. At least he does good posts with excellent photos!

A from the heart big Thanks to all!!! But not surprising to me first my question is about beer

From what I have seen on this site I feel this is the place to gain the needed information to clear up a couple of different points of view. The subject of course is Guinness Stout, and issue is what makes a great stout taste so good. I have been fortunate enough to have found 3 different pubs in the last couple of weeks that have fantastic Guinness. In each glass you could write your name in the head and it would be there to the end. Each was built in a slow pour way with time to settle in between. However each bar tender in each place told me their Guinness was the best because,

1. The keg is all ways fresh
2. The tap needs to clean and they have the cleanest
3. The temperature needs to be cold

I had to make sure that there was truth to what each bar tender was claiming so I did my part and made sure to have more than one. So my question to the Guinness fans is what if any truth to claims is there?

Greetings Dave! Welcome to our little web site and thank you for your support with keeping the lights on.

You asked a very wise question. A review of the site will reveal that BMW owners spend a lot of time customizing their machines. Considering that a man could literally spend hundreds of hours in his garage, it's only logical to wonder what does he eat and drink while doing so?

I'll let others deal with the eating part, I'll address the important issue: what does he drink? A Guinness is logical choice and I can think of none finer!

In spite of the confusion created by some site members, a Guinness is always served ice cold (never under any circumstances over 38 degrees F.) My Guinness is always so cold that there is ice in it.

Now, the thinking man might ask: what if I live in a very cold climate and I'm out in the garage doing the usual winter projects to my bike during the non-riding season? Is it too cold to enjoy an ice cold Guinness? Absolutely not! Heat the garage up! Heat the garage up to whatever temperature is comfortable for you to enjoy an ice cold Guinness. For me, that's about 70 degrees F. The amount that you will spend to heat your garage up to 70 degrees is a very small sacrifice to enjoy a drink of this caliber.

BTW, the finest establishments will serve Guinness from a keg. The contents will always be same day fresh. The tap will be changed for a clean one each day and the keg will always be ice cold.

Your first question being about Guinness shows that you are a deep thinker of considerable taste and character. A logical BMW rider.

Happy riding and drinking (just not at the same time)!

Straight from Guinness.com:

GUINNESS® Draught is best served at 6°C (that’s 42.8°F), with the legendary two-part pour. First, tilt the glass to 45 degrees and carefully pour until three quarters full. Then place the glass on the bar counter and leave to settle. Once the surge has settled, fill the glass to the brim. It takes about 119.5 seconds to pour the perfect pint. But don’t fret. It’s worth the wait.


That's still too cold for a true Guinness man. But it sure beats 38°!

Yes, I am aware of the company info at Guinness.com. I disagree! 38 or less is the perfect temperature (for a true American Guinness man). BTW, it doesn't make any difference which Guinness products you are consuming, the colder the better.

As far as the two part pour: I have no opinion on that.

Uh-Oh

I'm afaid I have a cofession to make. I don't mind Guiness too much but basically I don't LIKE beer at all. It pretty much tastes the same to me, though my son and my daughter are extremely well versed in the different beers from this and other countries. They are true beer lovers and know more about it than I ever will or want to.
However, I do love and appreciate German motorcycles and have two Beemers. I'd have more if my wife would let me.

Robin, you have swerved in to another topic near and dear to my heart. But, at the risk of hi-jacking ANOTHER thread, i digress!

Over here in the UK,we leave our Guiness and beer in the porch.Its always cold enough.And you think you have it tough.Plus if her indoors wont let me in,i'm sorted.We have a lover porch,spent many a happy night in lt.

Just booked a table for two for me and the wife. It was bound to end in tears though - she's crap at snooker.

Such an unfair world. When a man talks dirty to a woman its considered sexual harassment, but when a woman talks dirty to a man its £2.50/min
