    That's how it was here in Houston, too. Sunny, mid 70's rode all day...today sleet. Supposed to be back in the 70's by the weekend, though!

    Used to ride in nice weather like this, now, I just park bike, drive any vehicle I have that runs with heat! Meanwhile, rebuild and service Bike for those warm nights and hot days!

    OMG!!!!!  Winter or summer that has got to be the worst freaking commute.  My OL is from Milwaukee and when we visit her family we never, ever, never go anywhere near Chicago.  We take the looooonnnng way from Ohio.  124/24 across Indiana and Illinois to Interstate 39 and then north.  Of course we don't HAVE TO BE anywhere in a hurry since I'm retired at all.  But God!!  I just can't imagine that commute.  What the hell do you do for a living that makes you have to do that?


    Peace

    I just go the heating bill for January and compared it to last year, Dam this cold is getting tiring. That and gas just to warm the cage that could have gone to riding the bike.
