Yup we had 4 cm the other day and now its cold again. We are expecting plus 6 this time next week. It seems like everything bike related that I do happens on the coldest day of the month. I bought my bike in -36. Exhaust programmer and big air this weekend. Oh well I guess it will be ready for riding season.

How long is your riding season? I was able to ride 3 days this week with temps in the forties. I was down from December2, 2013 until March 17, 2014. Way too long for this area.

Last year I was riding at this time. This winter has been the worst in recent memory and as a person who rides daily to work during Spring to Fall, very depressing.

However if the long term forecast has any accuracy, you should see plenty of motorcycles on the road shortly. Hang in there people, we are ALMOST there!

We are due for snow tonight and into the am but hopefully just an inch or two. Up to 60 or so this Friday and Saturday but I think there is some rain in there too. Sigh. I'm hoping the rain doesn't pan out and I can at least get out for a while Friday or Saturday. This winter really has been a bummer...

Drove up to South Bend today for work and literally fishtailed down the highway for the last 30 miles! Very tense drive!

Well it snowed some more here yesterday not much but enough. Now the rumors are it will begin warming up, 1st signs of actual Spring.

But my bike isn't leaving the garage/cocoon until after a TON of rain has washed away all the accumulated salt off the streets. I'm X-ing my fingers maybe I can fire up the bike in the next week or 2
