Title: Flipping cold here.
Post by: Greybeard on 29.11. 2016 22:30
Minus 9 degrees Centigrade in some parts of the UK tonight! It's currently -3 where I live. Not ideal motorcycling weather! :-\

What's the weather like where you are?

Barely got above freezing here in the Idaho mountains today. Road is a sheet of ice. Bikes are in winter storage. Time for wrenching.

The sun came out this afternoon and the roads dried off so I took the 650ss out for a ride. I don't have the BSA plated or I might have ridden it.
It was chilly enough at +8 c.  but OK for an hour long ride.

Given our summer has just started I don't think it's fair us in the Southern Hemisphere comment  ;) , but......if it was winter here in the Wairarapa, it would still be warm enough here to ride even on the coldest of days, well during daylight anyway  *smile*

 A relatively cool 30ºC here on the 'ospital clock @ about mid-morn...then went to help a girl buddy fix her little jappo, and after pulling the cover off had trouble holding the bars to move it- should be warmer enough tomorrow to take  *beer*  *lol*

18C here at 6:30am expected to get to 30C today. I prefer the cooler winter temps of 5C to 15C, I start to melt at 25C. But at least I can ride 364 days a year.
Cheers

As I drove from Banbury to Carlisle and back today, via Prestatyn, it looked very cold outside the van. Matchless G3 delivered and Sportster collected. Just get back in the van quickly before you freeze.

Pedro,

There is a corner of my brain that I reserve for the possibility that I could move it all to Lake Chapala and become a prospect for Los Ocultos (¿Es posible?). Probably not happening while I'm still alive, but keep an eye out for me thereafter.

G'day Pedro.
You mean 2999 HD's and 1 bike. I'd bet yours was the only A10 there, and drew it's fair share of maidens.
Cheers.

Part- timer!  *smile*

Frosty here in Manchester, hovering around 2 degrees C, but things need doing so it's off we go! (I've always found parking the bike up for winter causes more problems than it's worth come spring)

Was that a typo, or is there one solitary day you can't ride?
