I don't know how much more of this brutal winter weather I'll be able to ride through.
If you're asking me, I'm in North San Jose, CA. Milpitas border at the south end of the San Francisco Bay Area. It's in the high 50s and pretty close to perfect riding weather.Ok, I've gotta ask - where in the world are you??
It looks picture perfect, especially for riding conditions!
Maybe that's his only mode of transpo. I rode through 3 winters when my bike was my only mode of transpo.There was a guy on a yamaha MT900 yesterday, riding around when it was 14 degrees with salt and sand all over the road as it was icy the day before. That was just plain stupid (looked like a squid), but some people actually still ride in the dead of winter around here, if there is no snow on the roads, regardless of how nonsensical. I draw the line at 37-38 degrees, and after the salt and sand has been washed away. That sh*t is traction kryptonite.
Yeah, I thought of that as I typed my reply. HUGE difference between here and where you are! Worst I had to deal with was rain and every once in a great while black ice.I was thinking of that, or he could have had a car in the shop. Either way, with the roads blanketed with white powder (de icer) he should have taken an uber or cab. We have a ton of cheap cab services around here and given the extent of his gear I would say he was local so a cab ride wouldn't have cost much. You can ride winters in your area much easier than we can. Not a chance you can go three winters around here with just a bike.
Same here. That and I was born and raised here. Deep roots.The weather and lane splitting are one of the reasons why I still live in CA.
Holy Crap!I don't think people realize how fast snowmobiles really are. The language is terrible in this video, but the snowmobile is way more stock than the Hayabusa.
