That Horrible Day in Winter When...

...I had to zip the quilted liner into my riding jacket.


WELCOME TO ARIZONA!!

Hope you brought a sweater and some good tweezers.

Well, truth be told, you may not need the sweater.



I love Clifford, the big red dog.

I finally wore my regular jacket instead of the mesh today for the ride into work. Didn't zip the liner into it yet though. Welcome to Orange County.

It's when all the tourists have left and you can burn half a tank of gas on twisty two-lane without ever having to decide if you really want to pass that minivan on the double-yellow.

It's when you can ride for weeks and thousands of miles without having to clean bug-splatter from your visor.

It's when it's never too hot or too humid to ride ATTGATT.

Indeed, how nice to actually need a jacket for comfort, rather than wear one for protection. I noticed today though that I still have bugs on my windshield from summer, maybe it's time to clean them off, I won't be running into any bugs for a while... then again, this is our rainy season, I'm sure it'll get rinsed off soon enough.

Agreed!
The cooler weather is a blessing.
I can ride during daylight hours without sweating to death and...
The obvious lack of Harleymen on the roads, (till May).
Just sayin'
All I pass on the roads here after October are KTM, BWM, and the occasional small cc enduro rider.
Yup!
