This winter sucks a$$ longest i've ever been shut down

First off, i would like to thank zx-10r.net & everybody on here for helping me get through this long long month of january, just reading the threads, watching the vids( not the n.w.s. vids & pics L.O.L) getting in some friendly arguments about things to do with our bikes......etc has kept me going. I love motorcycles and have been riding streetbikes since i was a sophmore in h.s (1992). Tomorrow marks the 1month anniversary since i last got to ride my bike, making it the longest shut down iv ever experienced in my street riding career & it sucks. I will usually get my bike out for a small ride in anything 40dgrs & up but we havent seen that, and to top it off it did hit 55dgrs today but our alley still has an inch of ice & 2in of snow on top of that. The weather is to go to crap again tomorrow & on the 10 day forcast it doesnt look like its going to crack 30dgrs. So to sum it up, i hate winter but feel real luckey to have a great site i can go to (zx-10r.net) and talk it up with an even better group of motorcycle/zx-10 enthusiast, thanks for keeping me sane. here's to ya

I feel your pain! It's been a long winter and it's only just begun. I would suggest doing a few mods. This way you get to interact with it.


Stay single...See double...Bed triple!

Yeah, it was 47 degrees here yesterday but same as you, I'd have to get my 10 past about 100 yards of snow, ice, and mud to get to the "clean" road. Oh well, my bike is sleeping in my kitchen under a blanket anyway.

16 below here yestarday with the wind chill and my bike has been in hibernation since mid October. The bike has started coming apart and the Visa bills have started mounting.
