It will be freezing every night here in Central Fla at least until next Tuesday...  Suffice it to say I am not riding to work,  my blood is too thin from living this far south for riding in 20deg temps.

It's been below freezing continuously for over a week here, and will continue  to be below freezing for the rest of this week. The daily highs are in the mid-20s and the lows in the low teens at night.

I can't paint the Ace Air Canisters in this weather, so they are going to be at least a week delayed before I can get them done. So, for anybody waiting, that's what's going on.

Home of the ACE Fireball 535 Bullet,  Ace GP Hi-Lift Roller Rocker Head . Pistons, cams, etc. Highest performance Bullet engine mods available .  AVL mods. Redditch 700/750 Twin mods. UCE kit soon.

hey Garbone-- DO the flatside!  You won't regret it.  the increase in torque
thru the whole rpm range will amaze you.

I have  sust been out-pacing the vehicle traffic as I walked home from the station. The roads were covered in that worst kind of black ice with a little bit of melt water on top.

Cars accelerating from 0 to 2 mph were getting wheel spin and roads were grid-locked as far as the eye could see.

It's amazing, every year in places that have ice yearly, the drivers forget how to drive on ice and snow.  ???

  Not much of a problem around here with that...but this is frozen tundra about 7 months of the year.  We've hovered around 0-10 above for about a month now.  No biggee.  Springs on the way..in about 2 months.  Will.

I know what it's like in KY, I lived there for about five years (Louisville area).

We had a real cold spell (for this area) a few weeks ago. It was down around 15 at night, 20s during the day. Now it's not so bad, in the 50s during the day. Lots of rain, though, making a muddy sloppy mess at the end of the driveway.

I must retreat to my place of Zen and meditate on this.

This winter is inching into the Record Books as the coldest in the last 25 years!  We need a Straight-Up movie maker to rebut An Inconvenient Truth with The Inconvenient Facts! 
Long live the Bullets and those who ride them!

My AVL picked as good a time as any to croak, we've been in the mid 20s to upper 40s lately. Before you chastise me, I'm in South Texas and this isn't normal. But I have Ballentine and Pinch to make my cheeks rosy.  ::)

Well, this is kinda related... I think...?

Way back when....  When I had lots of youthful testosterone instead of brains, that is. I was moved to visit the girlfriend in upstate Vermont (at UVM). All I had then was my R90, no car, and I rode year round in Youngstown, NY (NORTH of Buffalo!) while stationed there at a small boat station in the USCG. But  I could not make it to Vermont until the heavy snow was out of the Adirondacks.

So the first break in the weather and I was off on weekend liberty to ride 400+ miles each way for a little warmth  ;D

I wore everything I owned covered by a bright red snowmobile suit. I recall being so tired and cold on one return trip at night that I pulled over at a Howard Johnson's on the NY Thruway and layed down on a picnic table outside the restaurant window. When I awoke  I was covered in frost and my faceshield was frozen shut and fogged over. I must've been quite a sight to the customers watching me out the window. I guess stiffness would be an appropriate descriptive term for the entire weekend..

Ah, what we do for love...
