O.K. it's that time of the year when the weather turns cold and generally crappy.

 so I'll start off this years "who rode to work today"

 so who is the poser?  and who is a rider?

 

 it was nice and toasty with the gerbings this morning.

Boogies + helmet = bad this morning.  Add in tires needing air, low on gas, and late to work.  If you hadn't guessed, I drove today.

I rode.  The connie's all ratted out with the fairings off.  I might start busting out the winter funny pants if it's the same temp tomorrow.

I already started thinking how I am going to add X-mas lights to my bike, David gave me the idea last year when he showed up to the Winter pizza meet with lights on his bike.

Put the liner in my overpants and plugged in the heated vest this morning for the 20 mile commute.  Didn't check the temp this AM but it was probably low 50s.  Shoving off soon from work to ride to a club meeting.  That will add another 100+ miles to the ride mileage for the day.

Actually, I don't know why anyone wouldn't ride. Makes no sence to me at all. Headscratch

Still riding, I'm not buying a damn parking pass for the truck until the snow sticks to the roads.

I rode.  Nice weather here today though.  60% chance of rain tomorrow and high of 52 degress.  That will be a little more of a chalange.
