Year round riding

Boy sure was cold commuting to work this morning,
on my VFR.

It was only -3 celcius here in Montreal, but at least it is sunny.
I had to break out the long johns this morning.
Ha! Ha!

I am hoping to beat my record this year in terms of how long
I can ride before the snow comes.
My best record to date was back in 2001 in Vancouver I rode
on Christmas day Dec.25th and I started again on Feb. 14th on
Valentine's Day.

Here on the East coast, my best record is I rode until Nov.15th
and then started over again March 24th.

I hope to beat that record this year.

I believe there is a club in the USA and a website of riders who ride year round in some of the coldest states in the US.
I believe they are called Rounders, not sure.

How about you guys, how many of you guys ride year round?

Well, Happy riding folks!

Wish me good luck!

I'll never forget the morning I woke up to -14 here in Vancouver.

It was cold but clear with no snow on the ground, so I walked outside and kick started the ol' RZ350, completely forgetting that I was still running water in the radiator from racing at Westwood. Not a drop of anti-freeze in that puppy.

Cracked the block as soon as it fired up.
