And still a week to go!

I was young and stupid then. I'm old and stupid now.
We get too soon old, and too late smart.
I started off with nothing and still have most of it left.

Its the truth! I love it when I can look out and all I see is everything covered in snow.

Yup, it has gone down to about -30's before now, saying that the cold isn't damp as it is here. Salt on the roads stops working about -10 to -15 so they have to use rocks instead.

Re: damn snow

Still some snow here.
Went down to the Snowy Mountains, which only have snow for part of the year.
Was a balmy 26C when I arrived with a few patches of snow still visible. Not sure how much longer they will last.

Of cause these arent near a road - they were tucked up near the ridge line, but quite visible from the road!
Saw quite a few bikes out on the Alpine Way - its a nice road in summer.

Re: damn snow

Re: damn snow

Went on a ride out to the Dragon Rally Saturday (Snowdon way). All the ironarse crusties were moaning at the warm, bright sunshine, not Dragon weather at all. Great days riding... at last.

Re: damn snow

Snow? What be this? I just got off the BM and the dash said air temp 43.5C whats that, 110F?

Nope no snow... never seen the stuff, can't work out how you guys can survive 6 months with no riding!

Re: damn snow

We lose a good 3 months of riding a year here, snow is almost gone and temp in the 60*'s F the next few days, started the bike for the first time yesterday, now to scope out all the nasty pot holes winter has created before the ripping occurs.

Not so bad if you find yourself a lake and there's lakes everywhere here
Lots of 'official' ice racing tracks too.

C'mon, this looks fun, eh? I've already got some heated gear for next winter
