For the first time since Dec. 23rd, the Sun is shining! Yeah! Unfortumately, it's only 22°.

I needed to go into my office saturday, and decided I'd ride no matter what the temperature. It was 18 degrees out at 7am when I left. Flannel lined jeans, t-shirt with a fleece over it and Corrazo jacket. Termoscud lap apron and handlebar muffs with gloves. Full face helmet and balacava.

mmmm....mmmm....mmmm, toasty.

It's a 25 mile one way commute. Took the long way home. did over 100 miles and was comfortable. I was generating so much heat in the helmet I had to keep the visor cracked, even at speed.

My wife thinks I'm nutz.

Didn't see any Harley's anywhere

It was 23 degrees when I went for a ride this morning. No problems except my fingers were frozen inside five miles. I've got to get some handgrip muffs or something. Gotta keep riding!

Had a ride with the Sydney scooter club yesterday. Beautiful weather, but not too hot. Went to Balmoral beach and stopped there for a coffee and snack or ice-cream, then on to Mosman, another lovely beach resort (with a pub).

As it was an impromptu ride, not the regular run, there were only 10 scoots insead of the usual 30.

There! Now you can all hate me!

It was really nice here in KC today, until around 3pm. The wind shifted and it suddenly got really cold. Still a good day out riding with the club.

The temps got into the low 70's yesterday so H and I had a great opportunity to ride the backroads for about 80 miles. That made for a very enjoyable afternoon. The 10-day forecast has the temps in the high 60-s, low 70's. What is up with this great weather in January???
