Yup, I was out riding on Saturday as well, and I saw a ton of other bikes out.

If this keeps up, I'm NEVER going to get to my winter maintenance!

I too rode on Saturday here in Louisiana . All that came to a abrupt end on Sunday tho.
It was 74° till 1pm...It started to rain while in Wally World.
In 30 minutes the temp dropped 12°…
By the time I got to the bike it was 54°…
My word....I LIVE IN THE SUB-TROPICS HERE.....
For the next 8 days at least it's gonna be in the 30's at night.
Even my house isn't prepared for this extended cold.

Yea I'm a woose. I moved from Colorado to get out of this climate.

Where's that global warming now??? WELL?????

Hold the 'ALT' key and type in 0176.
It's here....http://www.takeflightgraphics.com/PC_ke ... rtcuts.pdf
And it only works with a side keypad...It won't work on my laptop's top row keys...
Also the degree symbol is included in the "alt" keypad on my android tablet.
That's why sometimes you see my post with the ' * ' instead.
It.s all about the character map thats in your computer....It's different with Mac too

We had a beautiful Saturday here as well, went for a "short" ride to a friends leather/cycle parts shop not too far away. Well, I'm sure ya'll know how it goes, started to leave there and "well, why don't just run over to", by the time we got home it was dark and my odometer showed 270 miles. Awesome day !!!

I have to maintain a network of computers at my work and off site.Then some half dozen different ones at home too.
After many years of fighting with windows,linux,unix and android operating systems and their little quirks , I have found the final cure for ALL my computer difficulties....... :geek:

I unplug them and go for a bike ride. :D

I wanted to get out for a ride Saturday when the temp hit 58 degrees (I tried the alt key and 0176 but it just threw me off the site) well anyway I waited all day for the remaining snow and ice to melt (which it finally did by about 3 PM) but my road which is dirt/gravel out to the hiway was slimy mud, so it was a no-go.

Got 300 in on Friday last, and am heading down to Texas to ride the "Twisted Sisters" tomorrow morning. Going to ride for 4 days! Supposed to be in the hi 50's-low 60's so can't wait! It will be a little cool when I leave in the AM, but no problem!! I'm riding!!
