I have returned!

After riding Excelsior every day while I was selling my jeep, kinda killed the novelty of riding......

Well, I sold my jeep and bought a Subaru Forester, which I LOVEEEEEE.

Been working on the car, changing axles, fixing the AC...etc...and finally the weather isnt stupid hot outside and I can ride again.

Rode to work, the beast LIVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS.

So much fun.

Kinda funny that this is the time of year when most people (here in N. America) are packing their bikes away for the winter! It was 32F on the parking lot thermometer when I rode in this morning.

It gets cool in Fresno in the winter, but that is easier to deal with than the triple digits of summer. Thicker gloves, a padded, armored jacket, full helmet...all are easier to use than trying to stay safe during summer, although I ride year round.

Well C-bug it is supposed to hit -25 here on night of the 10th and have a high of -11 for remembrance day. It is an unusual low but normally snow stays on the ground at this time of year. So you enjoy the fact that you can still ride even if it is cold. I certainly wish I could as I have been to busy to ride. The one nice thing is that the cold slows down work so I can do more in the garage.
