The fall was spent making all the best tweaks to the DL650 that I now wish I had done long ago.
I remember riding this road with you a different day. Good times.

Richmond Va chatter

Was out at Madstrom's place today picking up a vest and finally stopped at Get-n-Go in Skinquarter on 360. They have some good food,

Stop in if you are out there playing on Skinquarter & Rocky Ford roads.

Now to get the vest hooked to the RT.

They do. I've stopped in there a couple of times over the years.

Completely off-topic

Does anyone have a Blu-Ray DVD burner that connects to a computer via USB? My family wants copies of our TAT trip movie, but a normal DVD burner is standard definition and not HD. I'd love to burn some HD DVDs but then will mostly likely never use a Blu-Ray burner again. Would be interested in renting one from a fellow inmate for a week or so. PM me if you have one available. Thanks.

They just finished a complete rebuild/remodel from the fire they had a while back.

I'm looking at western Powhatan, Cumberland, Farmville. Maybe rte to Scottsville. Maybe Mountain View Market. I got to thinking about their chicken and dumplings.

I'm still trying to get motivated. I'll probably just settle for a ride out to Farmville around the middle of the day.

Older daughter just got in from up in MD. Here for her sister's pinning ceremony a little later today.

Also, got a note from a friend of mine in Helvetia. 3 deg. at his place and sez it's 10 deg. colder nearby.

Brrr!

What's the coldest you've ridden in Guy? I used to commute as far into the winter as I could stand and found that 15 degrees was pretty damn close to my limit. I might have been able to colder had I been more prepared, but seeing as I was commuting I didn't wasn't wearing my full on snow man suit.

Nowadays I draw the line at about 25 degrees as I fear the black ice and don't like feeling like the Michelin man when trying to get on one bike.

Probably around zero or a little lower when I was living in Lynchburg. Daily commute was 12 miles to GE and my riding gear consisted of blue jeans and an old Army field jacket. That was on my 305 scrambler. Those were bubble shield days and my beard would freeze to the inside of the shield.

I could not do that. My commute is 23 miles to Midlothian via 64 & 288. I usually am pretty well covered up top, but bottom is/was thin long johns, jeans and stitch. No way I would ride more than 23 miles in that. Even in 20 degree temps my legs would start burning they were so cold.
