It's killing me!

I currently Have my bike parked in my living room, getting it all shiny and ready for spring rides, and summer travel. Although I get the pleasure of polishing chrome and aluminum, I swear I can hear her calling to me in the middle of the night begging me to ride her. One huge problem with parking a bike in the living room is it is a constant reminder that there is snow outside and a current temp of negative 18. I look at her from the couch and she wants to be ridden, not sure I am going to make it till spring thaw...

Why would you buy a motorcycle when you live at the Arctic Circle?

I know the feeling.
I have my bike in the living room for the winter too.
Being without a garage in the northern part of our planet sucks!
But, it sure does make working on the Vulcan convenient, hehe.
Thankfully I have a snowmobile to take some of the "OMG I can't wait to go for a ride!" edge off.

Don't think I can get away with burnouts in the living room. Not sure bout being above the artic circle, but I am wondering if the circle is getting bigger, as it is COLD...and I mean cold...just got all my new tins on tonight, and now its even harder....guess attack it with more mothers and a cloth

Sorry, I think I should have put this in the Goats belly....

It's looking up... Temps in Colorado are getting back into the 50's by Sunday and are supposed to stay there all week. (not that the forecasters here are worth listening to most of the time) Looks like Sunday will be the day to get back in the saddle for a ride!

Nah you're good, it can go here. Sheridan, WY - ah HA! Now the picture is clearer! I feel your pain bro, a couple weeks ago I went out to the garage to start the bikes. I had them both running at different times while sitting on each one and listening to them. I open up the big garage door and see a 3 foot snow drift running lengthwise from me to the gate I need to get out. I mighta got a little misty.

Fret not good sir, the days are already getting longer.
