No far away places but to go to Rochester/Cities(100+ miles, round trip) in minus/single digit temps just to do it. I ride because I can and to encourage people to do what is out of the norm. Riding(winter or not) isn't about distance or places, it's the thrill of getting there. Winter riding gives me the thrill due to I have to pay so much attention to road coditions and surrounding. I also ride only by layer(no elctronics) to see what it takes to make it. I don't do electronic right now because i still testing out situation. Just remember, this is the State we choose to live in and figure I will ride if roads are clear. I have found out my sloped 300 ft drive gives me the most challenge(state roads clear drive not so much).

Prop, I respect your opinions and hope someday you find the thrill to winter riding like I have(took me 40 years to find the adventure). We all have different thrills, may you follow yours and I will follow mine.

I did that winter riding no matter what thing one year here, to be honest I found it tedious, and far too hard on the bike. It just doesn't appeal any more, just as commuting to rochester or riding to Minneapolis doesn't appeal in either winter or summer, but I am glad you enjoy what you are doing. That's the most important thing, really. Watch out for the arse hats. I still see drivers texting, even on icy roads.

I have winter projects now, so the weather being shyt is not the issue that it used to be. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to my first Delta Diner run of 2013. I considered going there by car, but it's not the same.

I found nothing wrong with the seat height. And it's adjustable, y'know.

Don't worry, if there's one thing Grainy knows about it's slacken off.

EDIT: And make sure you slacken off the top yoke clamps before attempting to slacken off the top cap.

Anybody wanna go drink some 'spensive scotch?

One other intriguing spot you whiskey lovers should check out: Merlins Rest. They’ve got over 200 whiskeys behind the bar and are trying to make it more affordable to taste your way through them. Any pour that’s usually over $8 is now also available by the “dram” — half the pour for half the cost. “It’s a fantastic way of expanding the palate of our guests without the necessity of them taking out a second mortgage,” says proprietor Lee Tomlin. Not having to choose between Macallan 25 and paying rent? Sold!
