    This weather "Sucks"

    I live in Southeast Michigan and have had many good years here, until now...My F6B has been sitting in the garage since last November 12th with only 1 day of weather decent enough to take a short ride..Talk about frustation about now, but I know many have had similiar weather days...I looked at the new 2018 Goldwing Tour last month and my wife said, "what the heck for" you have not ridden your current bike for almost 5 months!!!....I am keeping up hope that one day soon I might be able to ride again before I get to old to care!!!....Regards and ride safe, those that can.....

    Weve had a very dry winter here in Colorado, and it has been one of the windiest Ive ever seen. Already quite a few scattered wildfires east of the front range. This current storm passed mostly north of us with only a dusting of snow here. I rode ~150 miles on Wednesday (my riding buddies each got in ~250). Good time with temps 55-80 depending on the elevation.

    It looks like this coming week will be cooler and perhaps a little moisture. Will probably turn nasty when we should be out riding more.

    Toledo here and it looks like it may be a few more weeks before the weather breaks

    Just got back in from blowing snow for the second time today. 1 1/2 hours this time, 8-9 inches with 18” drifts. It’s still snowing. Leaving next Friday for Arkansas, on the bike.��

    Yeah, but, once the weather warms up, what about the roads?? SE Michigan is low on drivable roads, I'm buying stock in the company that makes the orange barrels.
