My Maxi-Scooter Riding Group got together for one last run today
in 43 Degree weather. We rode from Minneapolis/St Paul (The Twin Cities)
South about half way to the Iowa border for lunch at a Resort
(Winlims Resort/Restaurant) on beautiful Lake Roberds.

Despite the cold, 12 hardy souls showed up for this adventure.

I thought that at 43 degrees you guys broke the thongs and headed for the beach

Based on smily faces, looks like a lot of fun!

You've mentioned it before, but it's funny how weather over here, in the southern/mid Finland goes hand in hand with the weather in Minnesota.

Great time to have good fairings around you when riding, your Burgman must be a good companion for these rides.

Weather from Frostbite Falls Minnesota
Thanks for everyone's comments.

We are known to go out in T-Shirts in the Winter. The real story, most of us
suffered frostbite from being out to long in freezing cold in our youth.
We really can not tolerate cold in our hands or toes. You might actually
do better riding in the cold.

As I have said before, this is Finland. Not only would you find the countryside looking the same, many of your Finish third cousins moved here 100 years ago.

We really try to crowd as many group rides as possible into our short riding
Season. I am envy you folks who can safely ride all year.

So, please post ride reports and photos. I can live through you guys as
I sip a brandy and smoke a cigar next to the fireplace.
