Cold Weather is Coming

It's that time of year. Time to break out the warm clothing, gloves and pack away the half-helmet for a while. I rode Big Red to work this week. The morning temps were around 28 and of course frost on the cars. I actually didn't feel to much cold air when I worn my Gerbing heated gloves. The mornings I was too lazy to hook up the gloves I could tell the difference. I have to say that the heated gloves are one of the best investments I have made as far as riding gear.

Speaking of gear, Jordan and I now have Flip Video cameras so we can record videos on our bikes. Jordan actually used his on our trip to Deals Gap. Of course, I had to get one. It is too bad that we didn't have a mount so we could record our ride on the Tail of the Dragon. Oh well, we will go back there and we will video our next ride since we both bought mounts.

Right now I don't have any plans for any long trips. Slick and I still plan to take a trip to the outer banks of NC as soon as the winter is over. Until then, I will ride to work everyday and take in some short trips. The good thing about NC is the winterweather is not that long. But hey, I don't care, I am going to ride anyway.

Until next time and remember life begins at the end of the off ramp.

Tail of the Dragon Ride Photos

Below are some of the pictures of our ride at the Dragon's Tail at Deals Gap. I thought I would share them. Enjoy the pictures because we enjoyed the ride.

Until next time and remember life starts at the end of the off ramp.
