So here it is, it's 12:30 AM, it's dark, and in the lower 30's. It's been foggy and cold all week, too, and this following a big snow dump a couple weeks ago. Every time I go into the garage I look at my bike and despair. Winter is dragging on. AaaaRrrrrrGgggggHhhhhh!!!!!!!!

According to the local weather forecast, the high for next Tuesday should should be 64 degrees warmer than this morning. Of course it will still be below freezing.:-(

I think many in your predicament actually bond with their machines by lovingly clean and polish every nook and cranny possible. PMS can occur in the desert, but it's a very rare malady at this time of year around these parts. My wife and I had the opportunity to meet another GL1800board member and his bride last night; got a ride planned out for Saturday - should be fun.

I wish I could say I feel your pain, bruddah, but I can't. :shrug: Thermometer says +45F right now (4:45am mountain time) ; my carpool is leaving early, my wife is going to be busy this weekend...

:biker: to work today, I think! :thumbup:

You can always start an oil thread or extol the merits of a deer whistle. Over on VROC.org they had a "3 word" thread (limit of 3 word/post) that nearly shut down the server.

What PMS? I plan on putting 4-500 miles today. 79 degrees forcast for today and for me, that is the perfect T-shirt riding weather.

PMS is just another word. I would think by now that all you live in the North with the freezing temps should be use to it by now. They made their own choices to live in such cold climates and it is by choice they are all still there. So..........PMS is just an excuse!

That's my theory and I'm stickin' to it! :eek:4:

Come monday the trike will be in the trailer and we will be heading for the Texas gulf. After 7 straight days of getting up at 3 am with temps running in the minus 13 to 27 below and spending the days plowing snow for the city I parked the motor grader. I have had it and we are heading south BY BY cold. PS I'm taking my swimming suit as I hear their water is not SOLID to the 2 foot depth.
