The weather guy on the radio tells me it’s 19 degrees outside right now.  The thermometer on my porch tells me it’s 12 degrees.  It’s such a sunny day too.  I want to go ride my motorcycle.  I hate winter.  What’s up with this it’s gotta’ be cold for half the year crap.  It snowed yesterday evening.  It was those great big flakes kinda’ snow so I knew it wasn’t going to last very long.  It was enough to cover the grass and windshields and of course since our township hasn’t needed to use any of their plows and salt they just had to run them up and down the streets all last night and there is so much salt on my road that it looks white.  When I got up this morning I looked outside and thought the street was covered with snow.  Twelve degrees!!!  It’s too cold to go riding.  Last weekend I went to an antique motorcycle show and in two weeks I’m going to go to the Big Motorcycle Show in Timonium.  Why do they have most of the big deal bike shows and whatnot during the winter?  Triumph Come Home and Bike Week at Carlisle are held during the summer.  Ya’ know, like when you can ride there.
Yes, I have a bad case of Bike Fever.

  1. She’s my 2006 Triumph Thruxton 900. She’s the modern day interpretation of a sixties cafe racer. She gets up and out of her own way. I like her. She’s kinda’ like my baby. Currently she is hibernating in the garage all hooked up to life support, ie. a Battery Tender.
