extreme weather

While you guys are putting up with winter over in the UK we have had extreme weather form North to South in our state of South Australia.

It was 49.3c in the North & 14.5c in the South on the one & same day

Cheers Terry

U.S. upper midwest (Minnesota, Wisconsin) are looking at daytime highs of -15F (-26C) this coming Sunday/Monday.

Even colder northwest of us I'm guessing.

We're having a cold winter this year.
Maybe we'll get an early spring? One can hope.

Looking good Kam. May this be the start of a looooong relationship. Is that pic a little out of focus or is the bike trembling?

Just caught up after a few months of not looking in, sorry.
Even sorrier to hear about the biff, but glad you are (mostly) ok
But now a new bike for the new year

Neil.

[QUOTE=DougZ73;23104663]The man, the myth, the legend. Congrats on the new bike and a happy new year to you and the mrs./QUOTE]



Thanks Doug .... same to you and your family.

'man, myth, legend'? - you missed out 'the muppet' (who keeps trashing his bikes) bit !

btw.... I have upgraded to a better camera too.... just got a Sony NEX 3n ...can't wait to try it out when we get out riding .....although it will need to excel to beat the wee Canon that was perfect for the task..... time will tell. However I do love the 'low light' capability of it and the 'panorama' mode that stitches pictures together ..here's my first try at it .....(and with no flash in the dark). I'm pretty pleased with it ... (That's Sarah also taking a pic in the pic! Lol!)

Hi Terry.... the 14.5C sounds quite appealing .....but you can keep the 49.3C ! Yikes! I can't imagine even thinking of wearing leathers and helmet in that heat!
