Anyone else

I put the Bobber away for winter last October. It was a normal winter for around here until the first week in February then we got snow, and I mean snow. Over 2 feet in one 24 hour period. When March 1st rolled around we had about 4 feet in the yard and 9 foot high snowbank then it slowly started to melt. Today the road are ice free but we still have a foot of snow. The forecast is as bad as it can get snowfall warning 8 inches between now and Monday and not even melting. Who still other than can not ride the Bobber yet. Just me anyone else share my pain

Must just be the Canadians... with the exceptions of BC and possibly southern Ontario. In Calgary we still have a record amount of snow on the ground. More powder coming today. The snowboard season continues to be exceptional... to the detriment of our riding season.

it's the same here. all you have to do is go to the bar have a beer and wait until the sunny days come again
this could also explain why we are stronger in front of the alccol than on our motorcycles

We visited Calgary in June a few years ago. Beautiful. Car sized ice chunks on Lake Louise and snow in the shade. 😱
Good for visit though!

Riding Free
