-30 ... R U kidding???
on: January 13, 2015, 12:49:03 PM
OK so it's -20C in Toronto!!!  The northern wind chill brings it to -30C.  Dangerously cold with frostbite warnings within 3 minutes of being outside ... wtf???  I'm so tired of the cold and it's only JANUARY.  Motorcycle season just seems sooooo far away at this point  :230:

I keep going to the garage and and living room (where my S1KR is stored) and stare at it endlessly  :019:

The fun of living here in Canada. I know what you mean waiting for spring sucks. It is to far away. I have only ridden my bike for 20 mins total. So waiting for spring is taking a long time. There is snow on the ground here and a lot of it but not to cold - overnight but + in the day.

It's cold here in San Diego, too.  I had to wear a wetsuit when I went surfing this morning.

According to Google it's  "12C, Wind W at 2 mph (3 km/h), 95% Humidity"..... Not too bad for riding. :002:
Most of my life, I drank whiskey, rode bikes, and chased women..........the rest of it I just wasted.

I'm meeting a friend at ten for a quick ride in the hills.

At least when it warms up you guys have someplace to go...........

Just you wait.  When it's mid-summer with decent temperatures up there near the perma-frost, San Diego will be... uh.... well... nevermind.   :010:
