Lead, or follow, but just stay out of my way.

Just came back from a week in AZ. Daytime temps were high 50's, low 60's. Saw tons of riders out and was sooooooo jealous. It was enough to make me look at used bike in AZ, so I have a bike out there to play with. (I know Mama won't be too thrilled with me buying another "toy" while there are new house expenses to consider).

I would have to say wimp a few years back a bunch of guys came down for bike week and wanted me to join them for a ride .
they were wearing sleeveless wife beater tank tops I had on a light jacket it was 67 degrees well I caught a cold . and they were used to the -10 degree weather I guess and never even sniffled

When I head south (in about a month or so) the bike will be in the back of the toy hauler. OK, TX, AZ, UT and then back home.

It's going to be a while before we are riding in these parts. It dipped down to -30 C (-22 F) last night, the coldest that we've seen this winter. We'll see a "balmy" -20 C (-4 F) for our high temp today. The cold weather is forecast to stick around for at least another week to 10 days. Yuck!

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.
