I should work on painting my house, but the next couple of days should be sunny and near 80, and I've just now gotten back on the road after breaking a throttle cable a few days before Christmas, and it's running so well and felt so good on the way in to work tonight...

  80 degrees??!! I'm jealous. Where I live, I wear my First Gear rain pants even if it isn't raining just to keep the cold wind from blowing through my jeans.

Five unfunny Centigrade. About 37 F isn't it? Damn cold with a wind chill here now aproaching minus numbers.  :o
Roll on those lovely warm spring/summer weekends for some nice rides out 'with-the-lads' sort of times.  ;D

Probably best if I keep quiet about the weather here, but generally it ranges between about 60 to nearly 100 degrees F.  Hurricane just passed south of the main island and we got a lot of rain.  I'm not going to worry a lot about rain though, just wear a wind breaker and change out of my wet clothes when I get home.  Good rain gear gets a bit warm and damp inside here.
