4-plow snow away from trailer
5-remove plow from suburban
6-change plow tires for summer tires on suburban
7-hit the road for UNCLEJOHNS house
8-Camp in UJ's yard for the rest of winter
9-RIDE !!

I just looked outside on my covered patio and my thermometer shows +20 degrees with the sun partially hitting it. Nothing like what you have but to us softies in West Texas, that's too cold to saddle up for this old cowboy.

Now, I know some of you northern eskimoes will get a chuckle out of a measly 20 degrees but all the electrics, including vest, grips, seat and even a foot warmer will not budge me to take a ride. Those are for 45 degrees or warmer, only.

Courage is being scared to death, and saddling up anyway.

Amen, there are other things to do when it's so cold. Even up here my limit for take-off temp is 29+. My old body just doesn't do 'chilled to the bone' anymore.

Yes it's a bit nippy but still able to get some short test rides in. It's amazing how much steam pours out of the pipes when it's -9 degrees.
We have one fellow nearby who rides all winter in all conditions as you can see.

Their is a limit to craziness. Easy for me to say where it was a comfortable 28 deg. this morning.
