Default High 30's, low 40's for the first time in about a month

Here in the frozen tundra of MN, we have suffered one of the worst winters in recent memory.

Today was our first "thaw day" since Thanksgiving.

With temps hitting 30's and 40's for this upcoming week, we can all pray that the mountains of snow on the sides of the road melt quickly, and give us maybe ONE clear day. Wash away the grime, salt and sand... and maybe give us one day of riding this month.

I am imagining the pure joy as I go to pick up my Hammer S this week with a trailer and might be able to make part, or all of the 1 and a half hour trip back ON the bike instead of looking at it through the back window as it's perched on the trailer.

Wish me luck...

Which SRT8 do you have? I settled for a 300C as we couldn't abide the bolstered seats of the SRT8 300.

The temp isn't much better here in Utah it has only snowed 1 to 2 times per week this winter. I've been able to ride just about once a week on average -- except the 2 weeks we had negative windchills. I managed to get about 3 hours on the road today.
It will get nicer; once it does ride the tires off -- you've got some catching up to do!
