weather in ny sucks

so mother nature is playing games with us one minute its getting nice so u figure u know its almost riding season then bam the weather decides it wants to snow. I've only gotten a chance to ride my rc a couple times since I bought it because of this weather so its like everytime it gets above 45 I seem to roll the rc out an ride for atleast 30miles. this bike is so much fun to ride I cannot wait to do some serious riding on it

I am over in VT, and I picked my bike up in December so I still have not even rode the damn thing! It is sitting under a cover in my living room until the snow melts outside so I have a place to keep it. I live up at killington and we still have about 6 inches of snow on the ground, and with the glorious weather we are having, we are getting another 4-8 today.

This is why I live in SoCal. 91 yesterday. 89 today. I hope the shop is done with my new RC. I have had it for less than 1 month. Have not been riding it much cuz of rain. Mods being done include include pair, flapper, soft rev and dyno. Hotbodies undertail and rear hugger, Proton sigs, Sato frame sliders and 15/41 sprockets. I'm so excited. I just can't wait.

That ain't right! It's supposed to be 50 and sunny here tomorrow following the rain we had today to wash away all the salt. Looks like a ride is in order tomorrow
