Re: Or.....

I can't belive you consider this trip an alternative to watching doug put  in a new clutch in sunny Tampa area....  It is going to be in the mid 70"s today.  I know it is a lot like watching paint dry or grass gown but  It isn't going to snow anytime soon!.....  think I will go mow my yard!... (or go for a ride)  Now that is an OR I can live with..
Have a safe trip..stay  moderately warm .

Sure, see the big Tampa clutch job...Or you could leave with me this morning for Deals Gap. I'm in a Western Chicago suburb where it's +6F according to my clock. Suiting up and gettting ready to go about 12 miles west to breakfast. I'm lucky. One guy has a 1.5 hour ride to get to the restaurant. 
Bring the right equipment. 
I've got Gerbings gloves and jacket liner under heavy leather jacket, 3 pairs longies silk then two poly pro under leather pants. Heated grips AND seat. Tires inflated 5 pounds over to compensate for the cold temps outside my garage. 10-40 non synth oil...hope its thin enough. We should be out of this before the bike has to sit more than an hour and a half, so I'm counting on a bit warmer weather down south. 
We're heading straight south to I-64 then east to Lexington. Hope we're going far enough South to cut over. We're meeting a guy in Lexington, so we're pretty much stuck with this, I think. 
This is my 5th year at this and this is the coldest it's been so far. 
Why me?
