Dave!Will somebody please remind me why it was I put my ride away for the winter? I dare say that the weather now is perfect motorcycle-riding weather. Crisp, fresh, invigorating... cool but not cold. The kind of day that makes you glad to be alive. The kind of day that offers a chance to squint at a sky so blue that it hurts your eyes just to look at it...



Seriously, something is very, very wrong here. Twenty years ago, we'd be ass-deep in snow in the middle of December. Five years ago we'd at least be ankle-deep. Today it's so warm that you don't even need a jacket?

Thank heavens that global warming is "just a myth" or I would be starting to get very worried.

    Well it’s 6° with a coating of snow here in Rochester Minnesota. Does that make up for it?

  2. Ben says:

    Just out of curiosity, what camera where these taken with? I’m guessing a Canon something. Not your Rebel.

  3. Dave2 says:

    Rochester… is that off of I-90? It sounds familiar, as I drove from St. Paul to Milwaukee once.

    The Rebel is too big to carry with me everywhere, so I’ve got a Canon Powershot Elph that’s pocket-sized. I bought it mainly so I could have a camera when I ride my motorcycle, but it ended up being so handy that I carry it even when I’m not riding.

  4. Ben says:

    Ah, I thought so.

    Great cameras except for some occasional colour and fringing issues.

  5. Tina says:

    I hear ya! I am living near Saijo and this is just great “winter” weather for everything…dreading my first summer in Japan though with the humidity that I have heard about!
