What month is this?

A run a bit further afield this time, especially since the weather is so good. Stopped at the Glencoe Café for lunch as well. Really nice and if you're passing by I'd recommend it.

Green with envy,  what more could any motorcycling enthusiast possibly ask for?
I'm going out on my bike.

Yes it has been absolutely incredible.  I can't ever remember a February like the one that we are having. I have been out on the bike for 3 of the last 4 days.  Clear blue skies, and wall to wall sunshine = perfect biking weather.

This time last year we were freezing to death.    Funny old world 😎😁

 February.
 
 There is snow and ice on the ground. Actual temperature at Chateau Geriatric last night was minus 16.5c. With wind chill factored in it was minus 31c.

Bet the scenery is impressive though Rob.

A pic would be nice to remind us what snow looks like.  :015:

There's been little in the way of winter in Texas this year, with plenty enough decent riding weather to keep gas fresh, battery charged, and riders proficient. We're heading into the freezer this weekend, though.

Our National Weather Service has been throwing inaccurate forecasts all winter. They just can't figure out the underlying dynamics, which don't fit the usual pattern. But while much of the US has been brutalized with cold, Texas has gotten a pass.
