Talking If this is global warming, I like it!

Northeastern Pennsylvania, December 17th 56 degrees.
This is great, no snow and little salt. I have manage to extend my season on the wee by almost 1 month over the fatboy. The extended Givi windshield, heated grips, and hand guards. Combined with the following gear:
Tourmaster 3/4 length textile jacket

FirstGear HT II OverPants

Tour Master Cold Front Carbon Gloves

Sidi On Road Sympatex Boots

I wear underarmor top and bottoms, smartwool over tha calf socks, Nolan Ncom 102 with the no fog clip in, and a windshear over the nose and throat guard.

If your Strom is tucked away, break it out...revise your Christmas list..its not too late. Here is a link to see how your gear fares..... Now get out there and ride till the new year! ( And then some!!!!!!)

I agree Global warming is a wonderful thing. With an eye to the future, I just purchased some beach front property in southern Tennessee. The ony drawback to global warming that I can see is that kudzu will then grow north of the Ohio River.

Hmmmmm, I gotta disagree.

Less snow in the valleys of Eastern Washington but waaaaaay more high winds and flooding.

I think I'd rather have the snow.

I know alot of members here are over on the west side of the state, how did you guys fair through last weeks storm? Looks like the flooding over there was pretty bad.

Sorry to hear that...Funny thing about Mother Nature is, I always felt it balances out over the long run. We had record rain this summer, now things have kind of went the other way, so keep your fingers crossed. I am sorry about all the action MT. Hood has gotten out your way. People challenge mother nature all the time, and unfortunately, sometimes we don't win.
