The word envy comes to mind. :sun: 30's here in So. Illinois. Low temps do not stop one from riding, it's just that working midnights and having differing days off with the other crazies makes it difficult at times to get together. (misery loves company) I'm taking last week of the month off. Hoping for clear roads then. New years day ride just around the corner. We'll ride to the Kaskaskia river (old timers call it the Okaw) and watch the real unbalanced ;) folk jump into the river.

OK, so the picture was taken in the sun... it's only 70 at 3:20. Brrrr, I'll need to put on a fleece vest in a couple of hours. :D

Yeah, but is that a "dry heat"?

It's been hovering right around 32-38 degrees f here in eastern Washington for the last couple weeks -- which is exactly the range in which we get black ice. Fortunately, it's been a little colder in the mountains, so I was able to make a BUNCH of high speed, hard-leaning, big-carve-pull-a-G turns last night -- on my 185cm Atomics. Love the bike -- brings me close to the sensation I get when I'm skiing.

45 F here this AM on the way in...which is way cold for us pansies down here. It's one of the few days a year we get to check if the heated parts on the bike actually work.

It's not so much that we are pansies as that we can grow them this time of year... :)

Got to 52 F in SE Washington today and the skies were just overflowing with our own type of liquid sunshine! Great riding weather!

Minor thread hijack............

Ron, Loved your post but I've been looking at the LED's around the perimeter of your mirror. A great conspicuity addition but I'm wondering if they bother your eyes when riding at night.

On a similar note, does anyone know a source for led covers? I have been unable to locate purple LED's except in ultraviolet (duh!) and was thinking of using white LED's with purple covers or red LED's with blue covers.

Anyone have a suggestion?

Please resume normal threadishness. This hijack is now over.

Loren
