Summer's On The Way..

And no, I'm not going

Tonight is the Winter Solstice which means the evenings will start drawing out again, Spring will soon be on the way with (hopefully) a good Summer to follow that

no. that is not accurate unless your in the southern hemisphere. to this point the days have been getting progressively shorter and shorter. from today (dec 21st) till christmas eve are the shortest days of the year and are for all intents and purposes the same length. december 25th (christmas) is actually the first longer day of the cycle.

i think the full moon before the spring equinox will be the time to get the bike back on the road time to get wrenching! there is a lot of maintenance to go. did 13000 miles on my main bike this past riding season!

It doesn't feel like it here either, but at least we're gonna be on the right side of the Winter Solstice now

Re: Summer's On The Way..

OooooK Loopy. I don't think this does it. I think we need to be smoking the good stuff mixed with lot's of this and we somehow reach you up there. High as a kite again. Maybe it's cabin fever.

Re: Summer's On The Way..

Its kind of like saying "you're dying the second you are born.".......well maybe not but I do hate winter, even more as I get older, no snow and only 34*f and I still hate it. Glad I saved the wsbk and Motogp seasons on the dvr......helps get me through.

MMmmmhhh next summer here...new braided lines, TYRES of course can't wait, bit cool here at the moment and rain, but not as bad as UK (snow). Bring on the spring as the shortest day has gone for another year

Do, or do not, there is no try !
