Well, living in Florida I wouldn't expect anything less.

Come to think of it, isn't 74 rather chilly?

LOL, 72 is the switch to short or sleeveless shirt before the sun comes up.

I am the Mighty Furball. Hear me fluff.

I can only be responsible for what I say, not what you understand.

It's a bit warmer here on LI, 23 degrees but still too much snow to ride. I was riding in December but January passed by without a ride. We had around 2' of snow last Tuesday and I have a drift over 4' high blocking in my bike so I don't think I'll be riding any time soon.

Hate to rub it in but my buddies and I did a little over a hundred miles in the desert Saturday on our dirt bikes. Yesterday would of been great for another ride but had to watch the Patriots win #4. This coming weekend is looking to be in the mid 60's again so plans are in the works for another motorcycle trip, just not sure it it'll be street, dirt, or dual purpose bikes. Either way, some fuel will be burned up.

I'm on LI as well, on the North Shore. Today started with an ice storm and now has turned into heavy snow dumping another 8 inches on top of the two feet we got last week. I'm going to put skis on the Shadow soon.
