    Default Still Riding In The NorthEast

    After a brief episode of snowfall last week; we've had some rain, and the roads are clear again!
    I unplugged my Limited yesterday, and gave it a run. It's raining today; but it looks as if Thursday and Friday will have rideable weather...
    It's appearing that I'll get a chance to ride in December again this year!

    How about the rest of you up here?

    Dude... I'm sorry to hear that...
    We're getting some real "Toad-Strangling" weather today; all of the salt and brine is happily being washed to the side of the roads!

    We are getting sleet, freezing rain, here in Vermont, the roads are not safe to drive on.


    There have been numerous accidents. The salt trucks are out on the road. No riding for me, my spyder is in hibernation!

    We were getting rain this afternoon, it is raining now(in the evening) Deanna

    Here, the 's remain parked. Secondary roads are ice covered and the temps are now down to the single digits and below zero at night. I will just sit back and watch the posts for current rides.

    It's December first, and we're still riding!
    Getting to ride in December, is just like stealing Old Man Winter's pocket-watch!

    I rode to work in the rain Tuesday and Wednesday. Monday and today are dry. Unless icy, I ride every day to work. It shortens my commute from 45 minutes to 10.

    Three inches of snow on top of the already ice covered secondary roads. I am going to remain parked and do my riding through others' posts and pictures.

    Keep em coming girls and boys.

    Default Spyder going in for the winter Sat.

    Not so much that I couldn't ride anymore but have to switch places with the sled and get them ready. Never enough storage space.

    Rode today here in SW Connecticut, 56 degrees, blue skies, just beautiful, and as a bonus, two days of heavy rain on Tuesday & Wednesday washed all of the DOT crap off of the roads, tomorrow looks like another good riding day as well. I'll take all I can get for as long as possible.
