How did you arrange that? Are you putting the bike in a container?

15 deg F when I pulled out of the driveway this a.m. for my Hamilton to Sterling commute. The Gerbing liner, heated grips, Hippo Hands and my First Gear Kilimanjaro all did the trick. Only thing that is cold is feet and they aren't that bad. Nothing a few cups of coffee won't fix.

I SHOULD have ridden in yesterday, but was afraid the precip that was falling on Sunday night would still be around. Me not like ice.

Already warmed up 7 degs so we should be good by 6pm.

Yeah, it was a little chilly this morning for the ride in. I've also got a Kilimanjaro. It seems to to the seal out the wind and rain pretty well.

We'll see you all later. ->

Yea, I froze for about a block and a half till the old 300E warmed up then I was able to take my gloves off, turn on the radio & catch the news.

See you about 6:30

Y'all wore jackets? Lightweights.

Invigorating, the morning commute was!

As a thought, guys, for future get-togethers the Vienna Inn is less expensive and friendlier.

What a great place...
Yup, we were regulars there, I miss the old ways with Mike (Myer), Phil and Mollie. In case you didn't hear, Erma died a while ago after over 30 years of making dogs

Mollie would always yell at me for copping an attitude (like she didn't have one) and I loved to watch her screw with yuppies - "Did I tell you that you could sit there - Did you read the damn sign!".

Some day we should ride up to CT and terrorize Phil and his family for selling and moving north.

Guys - it was great meeting all of you (except for Harv who I already knew).

I'll reiterate - if'n any of you just want to ride a bike with a hack just let me know. If my R75/5 will start it's yours to ride. And if any of you want to ride a small dirtbike (DT250 or XT200) I can set you up as well. And if your employers are hiring, please let me know!

FYI - My R75/5
