    Who turned off the heat?

    It feels more like the far North than the mid South here in Southern Middle Tennessee! Only thing missing is three feet of snow, (thank GOD )

    I agree. No. VA is cold cold cold with wind blowing but I worked outside in it all day. I like the cold way more than the heat. Thank goodness we don't have ice...we get more ice than snow.

    I'll see your cold, cold, cold and raise you with our cold -31 celsius with a windchill of -43 celsius. Going to hand in for the week.
    What a lively time to go for a brisk walk. In fact did that yesterday. What can I say. I can send you some.

    You win...time to commute with the rest of your Canadians to Fl. In fact, I will see you there in about 3 weeks or so

    Don't blame you boys for packing up and moving to sunny Florida for the winter...but then again, you all are supposed to be tough and weathered...living off the fat of the land, etc....while us on the other hand, could be called "wuzzies" for whining about an occasional Zero (fahrenheit), and that is seldom here in Kentucky. Could be in Erie, Pa with 6' of snow......man, that would be nice. Just about time for a bike ride....gets a little cooler.

    It was a balmy 5 degrees in St. Louis this morning. The truck sure
    did groan when I left for work.

    If you ever see an ST1300 out in the 5 cold, give me a wave. I'm usually eastbound around 6 am and westbound on 64 around 6pm. The cold is no reason to neglect the bike, it needs it's oil to be warmed and circulated too.

    At one time I followed your philosophy, but these days I find it more prudent to keep the bike, (and myself), under cover... Blowing snow and temps in the upper teens this morning, with several more days to follow next week!
