So just put the new battery in my Burgman400.
Of course had to take it out and get the fuel moving after a difficult time getting it running from over winter.
Temp gauge showed 35 on the way back. Was wearing insulated coveralls for the test flight. :)
Brrrr.

Still waiting for that new CeeBailey's wind sheild.

We have a few months to go before we'll see anything in the 80's range. :)

Brrr ... just googled where Massachusets is located .. and was just thinking you are farther North than the most Southern parts of Canada :)

Did a road test on my new Cee Bailey's windshield today. 42F. You can see the snow in the background.
... only went 6 miles to town and back. On the way there with an open face helmut ... On the way back with face sheild :thumbup:



Can't wait as we are supposed to hit 61F

Went out the other day @ 41f and was happy to have a full face helmet on. Brought the wifes new scoot back from the dealer, she wanted a bv350 so I offered to ride it home for her. We are expecting a significant warmup over the next 5 days starting tomorrow with a high of 68f. I am real excited since when was it, just last Monday we got 8 inches of snow.

I love the 4 distinct seasons we get in Minnesota but geeze its been a long winter.

The highest point in the continental USA is in Wisconsin. The highest point in Maine is at 47°?28? N, Portland Maine (43.6614° N) is lower than Portland Oregon (45.5236° N) and there is another state above Oregon. Even Ottawa (45.4214° N) is lower than Seattle WA (47.6097° N), Blaine WA at the border with BC is at 49° N. Just saying. :D

I have ridden every day to work this year, Coldest has been about 18F and snow. No car, just my Burgman.

I had a very nice ride in January here in Ontario - was lovely weather - 12 degree C then off to thin my blood in tropical Australia. DId a few of rides with one of the members on here and we actually started a small Mac biz between us.

Back this week and backed the Burgman out of the garage after starting it up ( instant - amazing not a hiccup ) - almost blipped the throttle having ridden two standard tranny bikes for the last 3 months. Caught it in time.hmmmmmmm no neutral....now that is actual something I would not mind on this machine.

Gonna be nice these next 2 days - 17-18 C - mid 60s and sunny - it's 48 just now. Will layer up as not used to chillier weather as yet. :thumbup:

it wasn't very springlike here either - that will tend to be the pattern now the Arctic is warming.
It's all explained here - once the polar high splits in two - the continents get colder and the high pressures have been stalling ( think hurricane Sandy ) which means the cold air is not moved out so - no or low sun, clear high pressure air sitting around. = frigid.
And when you get a damp low hitting it....more intense snow storms.


good article

Brits not very happy either.
