Didn't snow here in S.E. Pa......but it was 38 degrees when I came home from work tonite!!! My attire was Flannel lined work pants, long johns, heated vest and gloves, leather jacket, face mask under my helmet!! I saw that snow up north on the weather map this morning!!! Why do we live here????
I moved 180 miles from my home town and you'd swear by my families attitude I moved halfway round the world. I guess your roots keep you in one place for a long time , unless you can get them pulled out of the ground a bit, I pulled mine out a bit when I moved 180 miles, soo maybe I can get them out enough too make the big plunge to Arizona ( or New Mexico)Job security is another thing that keeps you planted a little, as you get older you have to wonder if you'll be able to find work if you make the big move!!
I always feel like some day we will just pack everything up that we want and sneak away in the middle of the night and just go where we want to end up?? no forwarding address, no phone... I guess thats just a fantasy... just get the heLL out of Dodge!!! Saddle up and ride off into the sunset!
It's still in the 100's in Arizona. It's supposed to cool down to about 92 this weekend. It's almost perfect riding weather. By November it should be in the 80's. DucnHar, you're wasting your time back there with that Duc in the garage! Have to get out to Phoenix now!
Tell them how nice the bikes run in the cold. And how nice it is to see the leaves change. 100 degrees, yuck. Give me a nice 65 degree day anytime. Its nice to wear the full leathers without having to peel them off.
Yeah, same to you tony! We here in SW Washington (not NW where it's been pissing down rain!!! ) have been sunny and warm; last week it hit 80! Today through next week - high 60's into the mid 70's and sunny. Sorry for your weather woes, but
AZmnstr, my Duc is only in the garage if it snows.. I ride to work everyday year round. But I do want that 100 degree weather. I can't say I like the Pa. winters, cause I don't. I want to be in Arizona before I die. I love hot weather, the hotter the better.
AZmnstr, what is the price of real estate out there. Some where, south, where there;s NO chance of snow, and in some small town, not to far from a workplace. A little bungalow with a big garage!!
Is unemployment high out there, or are there jobs to get!!??
It was 80 here (Atlanta) on Tuesday so I just had to put a good 100 miles on the bike, that and I wanted to hit 600 before my thursday service appointment. Probably the last 80 degree day here till spring if Farmers Almanac is right. The past week has been so nice, 70's during the day, 40-50 at night. I'm hoping for more sunny days to ride.
