Snow on friday!?!?!?!?!

I'm finally getting my bike put back together after getting my new front rim painted and all wheel bearings replaced, plus front and rear sprocket and chain. Looking at getting it completed this afternoon. Forcast for tomorrow is a high of 54, and snow likely friday morning........WTF

i was talking about Montana just last night in school. It must be an amazing place to live to deal with that weather and not have at least 5 months of riding.

Florida has a poor job market! :headshake

No shit! I try to get out by 7:00 am and back around 10:00am at latest. Par broiled brains and riding don't mix. The heat's bad enough, but snow would really suck. Just send us the cold air

Hmmm, I have a friend in Bozeman I should contact.....Is this supposed to be the "beginning" of winter, or will this be an isolated incident? Even though it can get pretty damn hot here, at least we can ride year round

Montana is great if you dont mind the snow. Personally i'm a snowboarder, so the only time i get the blues is inbetween seasons. Too cold to ride the bike, to warm to hit the slopes, and i'm freaking out, lol.

Its not the beginning of winter, we get weather like this every year. It will snow at night, and hit 65-70 to next day. Makes a road trip a little hard to plan.....

Im from Ontario, Canada. I love snowmobiling and like Scott10r said, the inbetween season SUCKS!
Although I still ride my bike until the snow starts accumulating on the roads. I took my bike out in the middle of January once with full leathers and s**t loads of clothing on underneath, my sled gloves on, snow banks on the sides of the roads two feet high. But the roads were dry and the sun was shining, and I had the itch. Should have seen the people in the cars as I past them on my bike, it was priceless. Should of had a video camera to record it. Every now and then I got a thumbs up from guy's. They must have been fellow riders waiting for spring to come.
