You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din. I got out for a couple of hours one Saturday and froze my nads off, even with heated gear. Crazy

It warmed up to about 50 today at my house and that has helped melting the ice on my driveway.  I hope it stays warm for a couple of days.  I will try to ride the BlackBird to work on monday if I can get out of the driveway.  It's been almost a month since I have been on a bike and it is driving me crazy.  Last winter I was able to ride the 60 miles round-trip to work at least once a week.  It's been damn near Minnesota cold here for the last couple of weeks and I moved from Minnesota 2 years ago to get away from the cold.  The Widder helps but the mid 20s is where I whimp out riding.  80 miles an hour and 20 degrees on I80 gets a little cold ever with the liners in my gear and the electric vest.  I need warmer boots because my feet turn to ice.  Any suggestions?

Rode Lehi-Toole-Salt Lake loop Saturday. Wasn't actually as cold as I thought it would be. Today would have been nicer.

Hey Kevin.  I'm hoping to ride to work tomorrow (Tuesday). My driveway MIGHT be cleared enough for that and we're supposed to be mid to upper 40's.  Haven't put a single mile on the STeed since Dec 26 ... :-(

That's what the 'snow melt' stuff is for. Apply liberally to your driveway and get out! I plan on an enjoyable commute down to Camp Williams Tues.  Bigok

Hi Clair,  that's too bad that its been over a month since you have been our riding.  Has Todd been out recently?   I had my Josh, my 9 year old go out Sunday and work on clearing the ice in my drive so now I have a path from the garage to the street now.  Who needs ice melt when you have kids.  I was able to get out Sunday on my BlackBird and run it down to the gas station to fill it up.  I plan on riding a couple days to work this week since it hitting close to 50 degrees.

Yeah, I headed up Friday during lunch hour to check out East Canyon from Little Dell but the road was closed so I went down Emigration and was treated to some rocks on the road. Nailed a baseball size rock but didn't bite it.  Smile Bigsmile

The road from Little Dell is usually closed until Memorial Day, but they keep the road from Morgan to Henefer and down to East Canyon resort open for winter recreation uses...it was pretty sandy, but not bad...I'll take a sandy curve in February over I-15 any day Smile

Hey Mike. Long time no see. I was at Taggarts with our Hill Riders the same day. I thought that Strom amongst the other DL and ST1100 looked familiar when I left.
