WTF?? Hello Canada!!!!??? Spring is slowly but surely coming...heck we hit 12+ yesterday here in Ontario and today a 11. Sitting at 6 right now at 7:17pm which is glorious really considering what we had last week! Saw a harley today on the road...made me smile right at em cause I just thought it was a sign of spring!

Who is riding and where??? Temps and conditions fluctuate so much across this wonderful land so let us know what is going on where you are.

Had a buddy PM me about my vacation the other day. Said 'i hope you have a great time and that your period starts the day before you leave'. :lol: :lol: :lol: Im still laughing over that one.
Do you have daffodils up yet? So far here just a little crocus, irises, and lilly bells. Im looking foward to tulips.

Finally - it was 80* + here today.

I got to slide the Night Train around a few corners. Which reminded me to call and order a new rear tire. :wacko:

ok ya ya..you both suck. (in different ways of course :P )

Nothing growing here yet really...first to come up will be the tulips. The amount of snow we have had though is quickly disappearing!!!! Thank god for rain and warm weather!...um warmer weather. Funny eh? 12 degrees seems sweet this time of year but come June/July we are cursing it if it falls that low and grabbing our jackets! :lol:

Took the bike out yesterday shopping ( luv saddle-bags ) took a chance + took it to work on afternoon shift, had to work late and by the time I left at 11 pm was down to about 3 or so kinda chilly, but worth it. :D

84 yesterday. Didn't even wear my gloves home from work. Stopped wearing my balaclava last week. Getting a cold front through this weekend (highs in 50's) but I'm kinda glad because our HOG bike show is Saturday and if I have to be outside all day I'd prefer it be a little cooler. I ended up missing three weeks of riding to work this winter; it was only two last year.

"I ended up missing three weeks of riding to work this winter; it was only two last year"

Just the opposite of us more Southernly-oriented bikers. :D

Don't you have to change your oil to say, 10W-40 to ride in 3 deg temps? My 20W-50's only recommended down to 40 deg, and that determines whether I ride. If it's under 40 in the garage which is about 28 outside.

I just keep 20W-50 in her, it's a rare occasion that I ride when its that cold, and for the most part it's never gets much below 50 far. in my garage. :)

Yeah, I'd let it warm up for a coupla minutes but once the oil thins out it doesn't care what the thermo says. ^_^

(mental note: add OBG to the "you suck" list"!!!) Geez have to share a funny here. For whatever reason I screw up typing OBG every single time!! Everytime I type it I type OBC ...do not know why. so then I thought I will just type OB but that just did not sit well with me since its a name of a tampon here so I thought...nah not a good idea, so then I thought I could just call you Guy lol. At least it is a word! and one that my fingers seem to type out well enough.

Okay, done hijacking my own thread. :lol:

oh and Guy, you do suck too! :P

Damn askher! I could not find that little "biotch with the magic wand!" and it is 20F here right now so I am thinking when I do find her I am going to give her a good swift kick in the a$$ to let her know it is supposed to be spring!!!! :lol:

-2 with snow/rain in the forecast today. But the sun is shining! Haven't seen it in about two weeks.

My road was washed out last week, and the repairs they did give me the confidence that it will wash out again shortly. Tax dollars at work.

But did I say the sun was out?

PD was insane. In the years going, roughly 5 I have never seen that many bikes or people, I have pics, but just too busy to upload, hopefully life will calm down. Main St had bikes, but couldn't see them.

Once I made the turn from HWY3 onto HWY 6 went down to the point of where the cops will only let bikes through, it took an hour to go from there to town.

June 13,2008 only 1 in '08 I plan on leaving my house around 6am just so I can get in early. I have a hunch it will be even worse that in July. Phli glad you had a good time.

Molsen glad you could make it out. Did you see the line up for the Tim Hortons?
You would be best to arrive thursday and camp over night. That way you can sit at edge of town and watch the parade of bikes coming and going.
