In case you haven’t realized it lately it is still Winter. Here in Cincinnati, OH we see all four seasons at their best. We get the Spring showers, heat and humidity in the Summer, nice crisp Fall mornings, and even the snow and ice in Winter. Now, I understand there are places that receive a considerable amount more snow than us each year but, I don’t think I would want to live where they see snow as often as Bigfoot. I am however, ready to be done with what is in the picture below.
This picture was taken around 3:00 PM EST yesterday, 1/20/2011. It then continued to snow through the evening and drop to single digits so ice formed everywhere.
This Winter has turned into a rather long one for me. It seems every time I step foot into my garage my motorcycle starts to taunt me. It’s currently sitting up on two race stands with a full tank of gas and battery charger just waiting for the ground to thaw. Unfortunately I don’t see that happening anytime soon. What I want is in the video below.
I want to be back on the track in weather that is just warm enough the tires are nice and sticky and the bikes are sucking in the cool air then shooting it out as hot exhaust fumes.
So this is my statement to Mother Nature, Jack Frost, or anyone else in charge of this white, cold, crippling powder.
Please go away soon. While I do love getting snow, I want to ride. At least give me 50 degrees and clear roads. That’s all I ask. But not before this weekend, I still have to take the little one for her first sled ride.
