    Haven't been out yet this month but I did get in 100 miles on Dec 30. Too cold right now and I had a friend in Manti (20 miles away) offer to store Charlotte in side. If we get a really nice day,I'll go dig her out.

    Pete, there is really only one way to get there. We will go on the freeway over the Dam then continue on down the road to Wickenburg. 303 to I10 from there.

    Today is our first day in 2018 to get above 32 degrees. Supposed to be pretty decent this week (up to the 60's), but there is also talk of rain. I did back the M109 and spyder out on Saturday and let them run for about 10-15 minutes.

    My wife said it didn't count unless it had a destination, so took it to church this morning. 27 degrees, but at least the sun was out.

    I see you folks have snow--but at least the roads are clear.

    Mother Nature gave us about a foot of snow this last week. Three more inches coming today. The countdown remains--about a month until the ice melts off the roads (give or take a couple weeks).

    Somewhat clear anyway. A few wet spots, so now Iím going to have to wash it. Actually saw another bike when I took it to the gas station.

    Count your blessings Trent, I'm a mere 10 degrees further north, 8 hours east of RCSD and we've got snow covered (but plowed) roads, 2 - 3 ft snow berms around the driveway, an no safe Spyder riding for at least a month or so.... Shoot, this mornings 4 inches of snow now make my snow blower have to reach to clear the snow berms...

    We have had some 40 degree melt days here. Today, back to low 30's and four more inches of snow. It's looking like it will be April for that first ride for me.

    Actually the winter has been so mild here this year that I had to get the Spyder back out of storage,just too many good days. I have been back to moto commuting since the middle of Feb. Miss a day or two now and again for cold or snow but mostly ok.

    We are in the same mode here. I was thinking that's what I get for talking about the mild winter.

    As much as it does cut into riding we do need the snow for our summer irrigation water.

    Spyder has been out of commission due to a sensor problem that is challenging the dealers knowledge for a month now. I went back to riding my Goldwing. A new re-learning riding experience. Leaning and counter steering came back quickly. Will probably have to re-learn how to ride the spyder all over.....
