Oh, man! That's gotta be really hard to take, dude. You must be climbing the walls. I feel for you. :crying: Really, I do. I think we all do.

Patience, Grasshopper. The snow can't last. In a week you'll be riding (I hope).

Tell me bout it! We have had nice weather here in Western Canada but couple weeks back we were dumped with an insane amount of snow plus -30 degree temperature plus wind chill! Now i'm patiently waiting for the street cleaners to get rid of all the gravel so I can start riding my new bike. So I feel for ya but be patient:)

How about moving out of that ice box??? I guess it wouldnt persuade you if I told you it was 80 degrees here today and I've been wearing shorts to work for 2 weeks :) :) :) It always boggles my mind why anyone would live someplace like that. :crying: :huh: :idunno:

Eh, the changing seasons are great. I lived in Florida for 32 years, and I don't know what Cali is like, but the traffic down there absolutely sucked major ass. Year round riding weather just doesn't make a difference when you're constantly riding from one parking lot to another, which is what Florida roadways are.

I'll gladly give up a couple of months worth of riding to enjoy these empty twisting roads that are two minutes from my driveway. It's much more worth it in the end. I can ride for two hours around my neck of the woods and not see more than twenty or thirty cars the entire trip.

Even here in California the weather is not always perfect. I remember when I first got my Superhawk, it rained for two weeks straight :crying: . At least I had it in the garage and could just stare at it. Don't worry time to ride will come very soon.

Although it snowed another 3" in my area yesterday, i was finally able to pick up my bike from the dealer :clap: . luckily the snow melted by mid-day but it was pretty cold getting it home.

Ghost- i got the even faster titanium color.

Gforce- northeast is a great place to live. i love to see the seasons change; just image no snow on christmas?!?! :thumbd: what really boggles my mind is why someone would like to have sweaty nuts all year round :crying: :huh: :idunno: too much sun rotts your brain.

Sweaty nuts are a good thing - try it, you'll like it! Much better than having icicles hanging off your scrotum. :D

Congrats on getting the bike :thumb:
