I wimped out and took the cage to work today even though I didn't see any single digit temps

Amazingly, I was the only motorcycle at work this morning. I did sleep in a bit though. Didn't make it any warmer.

Yep, I got nothing to prove to anyone. But it looks like back to the 60s this weekend!

I was going to give it a shot just to say I did, but then I realized I wasn't as stupid as I thought...

I almost wimped out, but the bike had heat and the car didn't. I'll fix the car when it warms up a bit.

Your car doesn't have heat and the bike does? Something seems off there


You got this via Crapatalk

I changed the battery in the Kia yesterday, and it no longer likes me. I've got a few sensors tripped and the blower won't turn on. No blown fuses though, and I pulled every relay last night before giving up. Something computerized is pissed off.

On the flip side, Gerbings makes heated gear.

Well RD apparently you Aren't the only soul out there riding...some of the folks I know in NJ are still going out there for tagging...holy moly...
Now for a little rant...seems the weather people want to make the weather less boring ...now every winter storm gets a name no matter how inconsequential it might be...plus the term Winter is no longer in vogue now its the "Polar Vortex" that has hit the USA... I should have gone into weather forecasting...but it really is a worthless profession as 99% of so called meteorologists on TV get thier info from the NWS. So all they are doing is regurgitation NWS info...they are in the same category as fortune telling IMO
Wonder what they'll come up with next for the other 3 seasons...
