No snow but ice in the inlet

I had a few hours, wife and daughters went to the mall, and took a ride to the shore. Temps were in the teens but it was sunny and dry. There was ice at the inlet. Rather unusual in NJ.

Yes sir! -55C
That is what I am talking about.

Somewhere near Churchill Falls Labrador January 2008. Left LC at -61C
There is something about Rding in the snow and listen to the snow's crispy sound under the wheels. Or was that my brain Freezing? Ah yes! I remember!
Yes Nurse! Hold on Nurse! I will be there shortly! yes! yes! I took my prozac this afternoon!

A little single trackin

Rode about 33 miles to the trail head, and then 15 miles of cliffs, ice and snow on the single track...tried hard but could not make it far out of the bottom of the canyon.

i ride as much as i can around here.
the xt350 is the winter mule. -4 and below zero the last few weeks
i get the XR650r out sometimes but not much. the dnr frowns on that bike being on snowmobile trails.

I took my bike out but the roads were to messy so I went SCUBA diving instead...



This is a great way to spend a nice cold day...

11 Degrees

I ride my XRL all year round and the record to beat for me is 11 degrees. That is the coldest that I've taken my girl to work.
