Angry I REALLY hate the cold.

Man so I came on today just to see whats new. Found myself wanting to move. ?WHY? because where I am it's cold, snowy, and icy. Well, came to the conclusion that this really sucks and I won't be able to do this another year so looks like I'll be moving. maybe I am sick or something but am I the only one that would do anything to ride?

I thought I clicked the wrong button after reading about the cold weather, and then the page took me to a "best bike" poll.

Ok...I hate the cold also..."North Dakota"...need I say more, however, I am moving to California in a couple of months. I guess not soon enough though since every morning on my way to work, I pass by my RC51 all bundled up for the winter hibernating in the garage.

As for the poll it's a tough one since they're all good bikes and I don't believe any one of those one liter bikes have any real advantage over the other except on the paper, so it comes down to what flavor you like. Any one of these bikes will have you satisfied fat and happy. I've already owned a R1 and although it’s not the newest version, nah! I voted for the new ZX-10 since it’ll be my next in-line4 purchase.

Man, you're in Rochester, NH. . .it's not cold there! Come up to the White Mountains and you'll feel what cold is.

I was just giving BigGreenKawi a hard time, but it really is colder up here. We have our own weather system here in the valley. Last week it was snowing when I left for an early morning meeting in Nashua, and by the time I left the valley it was just raining everywhere else.

Every day I have to walk out and look at the snow on my 9's cover. . . very depressing, and I know that's not what she signed up for when I took possession of her down in Atlanta 5 years ago. Poor thing.
