    My local HOG Chapter has a Polar Bear Ride every New Year's Day. Since we started spending our winters in warmer climates I have been missing them, but try to ride on my own to be with them in spirit.

    Didn't get out on New Year's Day but I got my poor neglected scoot out on 2nd Jan for a ride up into the twisty Gloucestershire hills. Between one thing and another (getting married a few months back for one!) life went from the fast lane to the stupid fast lane and I've had very little time for many of the things that I like to do and so she languished connected to the battery tender since October......:(:( (ths Sportster - not the wife :s)
    Got back and got her cleaned up just before more snow fell. We've had a freaky amount of snow this year for Britain.
    BUT New Year's resolution is to put a lot more miles on it this year including a trip down to the Alps in Austria/Switzerland :D:D.

    Congratulations Cedarbrook63 on finding a new life partner to share your escapades with. 2011 is going to be a good year...colder temperature wise here in SoCal and wetter winter than we have had in a long time. Finding that I have to wear my leathers and leather wrap bandana to keep my face warm...looking more like a bike bandit these days...but someone said "--ride 'er like ya stole it...Enjoy"! :yes

    Many thanks for your good wishes NHD78F :D. It's been funny old weather all around - my friends in the tropics in Oz have have very strange weather tales as well. Are Mr. or Mrs. Nino/Nina up to tricks I wonder??
    Enjoy the ride and keep the rubber side down :D
