Clear, Sunny and No Snow!

The forecast for the next ten days is more of the same. Last year we've had a pile of snow by this date. I don't think anyone around here is complaining. I talked to a KLR650 rider this evening and he is enjoying the extended riding season on his new-to-him bike. Other riders at his job have been saying that it's past the time to put the bike up (as they already have done). His response is "no snow so why stop riding?". He mentioned that he told them that he knew the guy on the sidecar and they just shake their heads. Some people just don't understand.

If you look carefully, you can see the Alaska Range showing through the trees. This is what the weather has been all day. On Monday there was some great aurora but I didn't try and take a photograph.

BTW, the BlogPress app for the iPhone is considerably better than it was in the past. Especially the ability to specify photo size and placement. The reason for wanting to use an app is for times when I don't want to haul a laptop around.

Most will never understand RichardM.....less riding for them.

To me, the more you can ride, the better. I guess that's only true if you treat the motorcycle as a vehicle instead of a toy...

So nice that you don't have a pile of snow yet.

Our weather has been worse than last year. Then it was a warm dry fall and this year we've had a lot of rain. Nice to see the grass green up again though.

The grass greening up means more mowing. Our "grass" still seems to be growing and if we don't get some snow, I may have to dig out the lawn mower again...

But it's kind of nice to have an extended Fall.

No snow is good, right? We have had some cold spells lately around 35 to 40F, which seems fairly nippy for our region, and the time of the year, but it could still be considered as perfect weather for motorcycling since it had been dry and sunny.

Yes, no snow is better than a lot of snow. I still see the x-country teams out on roller skis. I bet they would prefer some nice, fluffy snow.
