    Rick, I agree...I won't be riding today either. Although I did have to give props to the guy on the Kawa 500 sportbike next to me at the light this morning. when he lifted his visor and looked at me, I could tell he was not riding by choice this morning. I try never to say never, but I would not pick to ride today if I could help it....lol.

    Electrics rock...but I always take extra layers in case of a malfunction....

    It's raining on us in Sardis City also. Just spent nine days in south Florida at my daughters house wishing I had a bike there. Just had to tough it out and play golf instead.

    Well, I don't think it's too cold to ride. I thought about it this a.m. and was going to fire up the electrics and ride over to Barber's for my volunteer shift this a.m. Then I looked at the thermometer again. Hmm! Only 26 degF. It rained yesterday. Roads may be wet. Plus there are several water leaks on Colonnade Drive. Better take the car. Yep! The Colonnades had ice clear across the road in 3 places. I heard on the radio that 2 B'ham motorcops hit a patch of ice on Colonnade Drive where it passes under US280 and both went down. And this was about 2:00pm today. Let's be careful out there!

    I agree Jack. Actually it warmed up fairly nice today...a little sun goes a long way! Maybe I'll get out tomorrow for a while!
