    Talking Piece of Cake

    C'mon boxergrrlie - get on out there and fire that Baad Beemer up. Boxer twins LOVE the cold. Nineteen is plenty warm enough, just ask the Kook. Heck, he strips down to his vest when the temp is that high.
    What are ya, a girl? Oh yeah...sorry...
    It got cold as bejabbers here as well. It was 40 something Sat morning so I rode in without my liner. By the time I headed home the temp and dropped A BUNCH and the wind was blowing like crazy. Man, did I miss my liner. I went wah-wah-wah alll the way home. Sunday was really chili, but better days are ahead!!

    Gonna ride the Tail of the Dragon next week - - weather permitting (meaning no snow or ice on the road).

    tennessee snow

    hey Lewlei, the tail of the dragon is should I say slick right now according to local weather folks. Maybe in a week or so all will be well for some hi speed twisties. A storm passed through here this weekend and left some of that white stuff and temps went to the mid 20s with 30 mph winds on Sunday. It will warm up mid week back to the 60s late afternoons if the weather folks got it right. Temps in Cherohala and the 321 are always 10 to 15 lower in the mountains and those shady spots. Just check the road closings before you head out. IHCB

    Ironhorse - - thanks for the info. I grew up driving the canyons west of Denver and know just what you mean - - especially the shady spots. Do they sand these roads like out west when it snows? That stuff hangs around on the corners long after the snow is gone (as does the ice in the shade). I'm hoping that by next week the warm weather will have made it rideable.
