Hey, I too have a long driveway and it was covered with ice a few weeks ago. I felt I needed a ride as the blacktop roads were fine. Soooooooooooooo, I backed my motorcycle trailer up to the garage door, loaded the bike, towed the trailer 400 feet to the blacktop at the end of my driveway and unloaded the bike. Rode 200 miles and when I came home, did the reverse procedure. LOL........Boy, it was sure worth it.
Good weather here now so been out everyday for a week or so.
It's sure been a terrible biking winter this year. I guess I got a little spoiled the last 2 winters.
It'll be HOT before we know it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've got a long lane and we still have it covered in snow. Even though it gets up to 38 right now, I'm not going to chance it. Just think of all the warm days in the summer you don't ride, when you could. There is also a lot of sand on our roads, I think they ran out of salt.
And they are also calling for another 1 to 3 inches of powder tonight
I hear ya brother. I just finished my winter projects on her and took her for a test spin yesterday. Today? Three inches of white stuff.
Daytime temperatures are sneaking up to thawing and all the roads are bare but my driveway has 4 " of packed snow and ice on it so I can't get out to the road to ride. Today I went out and shoveled some gravel from the side of the road and laid it in a 2 foot wide strip for 200 feet up to the garage.
