    Who rode in today?


    Every day I get more and more sure I want to get a nice set of gerbings... Now, only to get off my ass... This whole week has been cold as hell riding... at least this morning it was above 35...

    But when we ride very fast motorcycles, we ride with immaculate sanity. We might abuse a substance here and there, but only when it's right. The final measure of any rider's skill is the inverse ratio of his preferred Traveling Speed to the number of bad scars on his body. It is that simple: If you ride fast and crash, you are a bad rider. If you go slow and crash, you are a bad rider. And if you are a bad rider, you should not ride motorcycles.

    i have too many open projects and not enough time... so i winterized the bike already, one less distraction to keep me from getting the jeep done.

    Under normal situations, i would still be riding this time of year.

    I rode in on monday with my Gerbing. It was like it was 70 out.

    I had to send it back to get it resized since i'm such a skinny bastard so I couldn't ride in today

    I rode into today and monday without my gerbing..

    It's only 10 miles... I don't really get cold enough to need it, plus the traffic sucks ass. Between the heated grips and the regular gear and a sweater, etc.. I warm back up if traffic stops.

    The pavement was COLD this morning though... I think I painted darkies on a few tight 90 degree corners.

    My rear was spinning and sliding all over the place this morning. I didn't think it was that cold, but I guess my tires thought different.

    It's all water under the bridge, and we do enter the next round-robin. Am I wrong?

    Holy Christ!

    I rode from Lowell to Manchester last night, it was 34 degrees out. I froze my effing everything off. I dropped the bike off to be stored for the winter. All I have to say was holy christ it is effing cold out, well not today of course because I rode yesterday.

    On the way up to Manch some fuck in an old beat up ford tempo decided it would be smart to cut me off while he was going 100. Fortunetly my friend was following me in his 3000GT and took care of the stupid fuck so he would not think about cutting a bike off again.

    ITS EFFING COLD!

    I haven't intentionally but last year when I lived in Waltham and worked in Boston it was quicker and easier on the bike. I rode all year. I got caught in the snow a couple of times.

    It's not as bad as you think.
