Me too. I'm back on two wheels and the truck is parked.

How can you say that? Pie at the beginning, middle or end of any ride makes the ride more gooder.

I just assume that PIE! is there at the start, middle and end of the ride.

If it isn't, I get all cranky and cantankerous.

Then don't.

I'm sure there will be no repurcussions.

Sure was nice riding in this morning. A bit chilly yet but the ride home should be splendid. I do need to get some heated grips, any recommendations?

Or this:



Or my favorite hand warming idea (you could get fur to match your jacket):



You are welcome.

I prefer heated gloves. Steer clear of tourmaster gear if you go that route though.

Rode to work as well this morning. Chilly but that was my fault as I realized my jacket vents were open and I was too lazy to stop. Could have use the balaclava as my 2nd chin got a bit cool.

Also got cut off twice on Larpenteur Ave. so stay alert… no one is thinking motorcycles yet…. or maybe ever.
