Hi Fysty-1

I think we get about the same weather systems you do (I'm about 30 miles south of the border, above Spokane)

The best we have been able to do this year has been to tie two days together at a time with no rain. This has only happened three times so far. We broke last month's record for precip and are waaay over our average yearly already.

We're thinking of getting the bike out for more than the 10 mile trip to town, but I'm going to check the weather first!

I 'spect you're probably already workin' on it, but you need to get another wing on the road up there as soon as possible. Should only have to quit riding when you're dang good and ready to quit.

You guys have a good spring....or summer...or whatever it's going to be. Get out and partake of some of that sunshine stuff!

It is ok Fysty...I am not riding now either, and we are supposed to have highs in the 80s (I am west of Metalsmith). I really want my bike running but the wife keeps giving me lists of stuff to do around the house. She will be gone in July for a couple weekends, so should get my ride going again, but I hate missing out on the weather now. ARGH!!!!! :evil:

We are looking at temps in the 30C range here for the next five days too. That's tooooo hot for me to be riding a Wing. Will be out on my KLR as my Wing is waiting for parts anyway.

I don't think we have had a day where it DIDN'T hit 95F (35C) in weeks. And that's not including the humidity. This summer has just been crazy!

Summer's great but Fall & Spring are cooler.
I now have a gl1800 (08) traded in my gl1200 (84 Standard). It is a totally different
ride. Faster smoother more comfortable and easier in the turns. It took a little getting used to.
