I've got heated ridin' clothes, but so what?

And I can suck it up and put 'em on and ride, but what's up with this goofy weather?!? If this is 'Global Warming' then I'm a monkey's uncle!! I'm ready for it to get up to around 75 for about two weeks, and then turn off and get really nice!!

I have a brand new (to me) beautiful, fun airhead "S" in my garage, and it's too darn cold to ride (Greenvul, SC). Aaaaaarrrrrgggggghhhhhh !!

And no, I do NOT care for you to remind me of weather a few weeks ago, when it was about 20 deg. above normal. I want warmer weather NOW!

Well today it finally got down low enough I wasn't sweating in the 'stitch. Those 80 degree days were killing me. High today was only 65 but it was chilly this morning when I decided to go out at 50 degrees. Supposed to be back in the 70s by Monday.

It's almost time to head north.

Will somebody please pull, or block, these kinds of posts? The voices in my head are telling me to point my bike south and seek out these ne'er-do-wells and inflict bodily damage on them for flaunting their delightful spring weather in our faces.

T-Ricky is guilty, also.

May the fleas of a thousand camels infest their mesh riding gear!

You're assuming that the fleas would even go there!

No sir - dips in the wx temps like this are short-lived. Today, the sun is out bright and bootiful and nary a cloud in the sky. Be in the mid-to-high 60s and two-wheel comfy!!

Them cold nights just make for good sleepin' and only make it rough on the mosguito population (which is a good riddance thang!), so c'mawn down Tom. Do it quick tho - cuz Boerne is burstin' at the seams with folks heading outta the beeg cities!!

With the moderators bragging about their nice spring weather we'll NEVER get the others' posts removed.

I'm with you Dave. It's been misting, raining and in the mid-30s starting in the morning and mid-50s by quitting time. I've enjoyed the ride the last 4 days. Come move south, you'll get more (s)miles on your LT.

On His Ride,
Steve
