They say it's best to keep your mouth closed and have people think you're an idiot than to open it and prove you are.
I really enjoy my rides no matter the weather. On mornings like today there is even the added adrenaline of negotiating frosty surfaces. I guess I'm just a junkie!
Hmm... I've just proven I'm an idiot and a junkie!
Yes, I do have a cage and a choice. Warm, dry riding gear too!
All my Mistresses have two round, sticky black feet and are Made in Japan or Germany!
If I die on Phillip Island, so what! I'm already in Heaven! WOOHOOO!!!
I was almost taken out today on more than one occasion, and I have a very short commute. I'll stick with the car, but to each their own!
Fuuuuuuuck, I nearly lowsided my bike today.
The road wasn't even particularly icy where my back end slid out. I had just enough momentum and my leg stuck out to right up my bike while I was still moving. Must have hit on the grease strip with a slip of the throttle there by accident.
Saw one dual sport out there, one scooter and one sportbike out there along my commute.
But shiiit. The back lane and side streets were bloody icy... . As I am writing this in the office, I see another scooter as I look out the window. Those crazy scooterists
BTW, did anyone see the news lastnight? They interviewed a guy on a sportbike who was riding in the snow (but pulled over and walked his bike), on the highway. Man that guy (idiot) was crazy.

Crazy mofos, I almost sliped and wiped out just walking to my car :P
But dam, do I miss my bike already.
Weather forecast for tomorrow will be icy and cold and below zero in the morning. I think it'll be high time I park the bike and take alternate transportation to work. Should have done that today.
yea, my bike's stuck at work right now...this sux
anyone wanna lend me a bike ?
Left the house @ 9:30. Was still very icy along the back lanes but once onto the main roads, it was just fine.

It's almost exactly this time last year that the snow started too .... (26th Nov)
If you wanna say something, speak into the mic. It's right above my balls.
I rode in this morning. It was nice, but not as interesting as riding home last night.

Couldn't. Home with a cold. But the trusty Norco was all set to go! ! ! ! !
A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.
Well, today is better that what was forecasted. Rode in today. Some other guy at work rode in today as well.
I rode yesterday but I may park her today
