Wrestling with winter blues...FZ withdrawals.
Coping...barely...by sitting in a sub-zero garage w/ FZ running (fumes, dude!).

i can't even anymore - last year sucked with the weather, i thought we would catch a break this year but it's just as bad. At least oil is cheaper than it was last year.


MoFizio - i thought you were out of the NE? When's the light at the end of the tunnel brother?

Excited. Thanks for the support!

We're supposed to have a high of 16° here this weekend. It'll be my usual sit on the bike and make engine noises despite the wife's disparaging comments.

And this is the weather here right now 14°C (58°F).

We get some weird temperature swings some days, all has to do with the mountains and Chinook winds. Unfortunately the roads are a mess, so no riding either.

For example, a small town south of Calgary - In February 1992, Claresholm, Alberta hit 24°C (75°F) – one of Canada's highest February temperatures.

It's dropping down to -26°C here this weekend with a HIGH temp of -20°C on Sunday.... FML why do I still live here? 3 bikes and only 6 months to play? Terrible...
Oh, that's just nasty.
Amazing, really.
Why again did our ancestors choose to live in such places? :confused:

It can be freezing cold in the morning, then t-shirt weather that afternoon and back to freezing that night. So if you are a clean freak, you won't survive around here, the Chinooks make it impossible to keep your car clean, lol.

Port Dover would have been a cold ride. Insurance is due soon and the month is a short one for earning pay. I could take five minute rides but the salt here is danger.
