    Weather to ride, or not

    Is this winter ever going to go away? I'm going to have to get the trickle charger back out!!

    This winter SUCKS!!!!!! Good grief, below freezing on April 4 in the Ozarks? And snow possible tomorrow night?? SERIOUSLY???

    Allegedly, the sun is supposed come out this afternoon and be in the 60's; but we're in the process of resurfacing the shared portion of our gravel driveway, so I'm not sure I want to risk riding on it. Gotta go for a walk and check it out after lunch.

    Someday I hope to become the rider that my bike deserves.

    All the worry in the world doesn't prevent death. It prevents life.

    Normal temperature here this time of year is +9C. This morning it was -9C, feeling like -20 with the wind. It snowed the last two days. Glad I went for a ride last week, because it sure isnít happening now.

    The best thing you can buy for your motorcycle is gas.

    Yes, we are nearing the end of the best riding weather right now. It'll be back in October though.

    Thumbs up

    Weather HAS to improve by April 14 and 15 that's our first trial and it's near Tweed which is very close to here, ground is frozen to ice and snow covered now & I could skate on the lake that's not good

    ... but at least there won't be any black flies or mosquitoes so I'm up for riding regardless of weather

    The ATA keeps sending out very optimistic messages about the Tweed trial on their Facebook page, but the forecast is now calling for up to 50mm of rain, 3cm of snow, ice pellets, and freezing rain.

    The first CVMG vintage trials event is also this weekend in Stanbridge QC and the forecast there is calling for 20cm (!!) of snow.

    I do believe I will wimp out and stay home.
