But annoyingly cold 🥶. I'm wanting to do some work on the scoot today (12g rollers) but it's too grey and nippy.

For most of you it's the longest day so no excuses; ride baby ride 🛵

Happy Winter solstice. take your Winter solstice and put it where the sun does not shine. I am moving to Winter and you are moving to Summer. If I was rich I would follow the Sun, But I am not.

Proper Winter Solstice here, never got much above 10 C and forecast zero overnight. Yay, start on the downhill run to summer.

Happy Winter Solstice to others who stand upside down on Earth.
This one is worse because Earth is furthest from the sun in its wobble orbit.

We haven't had negative C dawn temperatures yet and our days are still in high teens,
so a little more moderate than you guys living closer to the big ice block at the South Pole.
But I can still comfortably ride my Vespa and I have a coffee meeting in an hour with another Vespa rider.

It is now 8C and the sunshine is streaming in...

Life is good.

I rode Gabriella to work today suitably dressed for the temperature. It's now 17:40 and dark outside. According to my weather app the temperature is 8.1, feels like 7. Zero overnight, predicting 13 tomorrow after frosts. Ride carefully people.

At least we don't have to put our scoots away for the winter.

Like the poor Canadians 😝

Mind you if i did live somewhere that snowed I'd probably keep riding and use different tires in the winter so I'd be less likely to drop it in the snow like I did recently on a day trip https://modernvespa.com/forum/post2551266#2551266

As much as people like to say today is the start of Summer in the northern Hemisphere, I am sad as I know starting tomorrow every day is going to be shorter and for me summer is over.
I like sunshine & warmth as someone said I'd love to follow the sun but....

I bet it'll be nice out at the coast today! If I still lived there, I'd be riding out to Ft. Ross, Goat Rock, or Bodega Bay.

Circuit City used to close all of the Bay Area stores for a day and bus everyone to a massive picnic at the Castle Rock Rec Area. I remember thinking how hot it felt in comparison to Santa Rosa.
