@#$#^ Winter has arrived...

Yesterday, I filled the tanks, put in Stabil, ran them around the block, parked them all snuggled under their covers plugged into their chargers, the bikes all nestled for their winter naps. And none too soon- we got slapped in the face this morning.

Last year, it lasted 14 weeks, 3 days.

I know what you mean. It's dropped to the 50's this week in SoCal, with occasional rain showers. How long is this winter mess gonna last?

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Must have been you I saw this morning while crossing the 5 bridge into Portland. It was 23 degrees and I was tucked safely into my ridgeline wearing gloves because the steering wheel was cold.

Wow!

Good thing I'm only in Jersey, I get to ride year round. I don't know what I'd do if I had to park the bike for that long. Try sleeping for three months

Whine snivel cry and moan all you guys want about the cold....you don't know cold......

I had to go over to the east side the last two days...not on the bike..... -18 this morning in Helena, -30 going over the pass.....INSANE cold.

Didn't even know that the thermometer on my truck could go that low. No bike for a while......
