And leather weather! Sorry to all my northern brothers, but we in the south wait for this cooler weather. Gotta get some use of the riding gear. It is a double edged sword though. Along w/ the winter months come the Q-tip headed snowbirds. Oh well.

Its hell down here, today I went for a ride and I had to wear a sweatshirt to fend off the winter cold until about 11 ish. Another day like this and I will have to find my gloves. I wish for a frost so I can have a mess of collards and fat back.

My ride to TN and KY last week meant leaving WI at 0330 in the morning temps were 32-34 degrees. Warmed up to about 38-40 by the time I got to Bloomington IL. It turned out to be a great ride.
We have had 3 morning of below freezing now so that is a killing freeze. Not done riding. I generally ride all winter. This year if it gets bad I may do some work on the bikes that is over due.
This was coming home last winter.
15,000 on the new sidecar now it has served us well.

I think it was about Oct.12 when the cog railway shut down until next spring. A blizzard came the next day.
I'm sitting on the back porch it is 80° and humid. Later I am installing adjustable wings on my faring. I only spent 5 hrs yesterday making lasagna. Lunch will be good.

91 degrees here in FL yesterday. On October 28th? ENOUGH!
You moved to the wrong state. Carolina's is where you outta be so they loaded up the truck and moved to Myrtle. Beach that is. Swimming pools, Vanna White, millionaires and 1 billionaire.

Yup sitting on the veranda getting ready for my morning shower at 11:54 am. it will be in the 80's with 45% humidity until Saturday it will get freezing at 66.

I am ready for some winter also. Tired of the 90+ humid heat here in Florida. Give me some sweater weather. No relief in site for the next 7 days at least.
