Depressing weather
on: February 08, 2013, 07:01:13 PM
I'm sat here now, looking out onto a road covered in ice and snow, wondering how warm it is in Spain. I hate  :190:

All I can think about is riding my CT in the sunshine and warmth of the Summer. I might be going mad - Help!  :005:

Hi Stefan,
My bike is still stuck at Honda L├Ârpers in Goch. All ready to go, lovely and clean, I've got the Givi Airflow and new Honda SW-Motech crash bars fitted - and terrible weather.  :232:

According the the long-range forecast, the weather is not going to get any better for at least 2 more weeks, maybe longer. I've just been watching some of my old ST1300 videos from Switzerland - even more depressed now  :003:

as we say - hope dies last  :084:

and i hope the weather will change in the end of the next week

i did not ride a motorcycle since at least 6 weeks. i hope i will still be able to when the weather becomes better   :305:

to kill my frustration i will have a few beers tomorrow at the heinsberg rathausst├╝rmung to prevent me from allways thinking about the bad weather :164:

better weather will soon have to come  :192:

Mate !! - Doc, Stefan and thetrecker  -  I just got home from a day riding in the heat 35-37 C all day
... it was a great day ...
had to sit in the pool when I got home to cool down, this made me think how lucky I am not to be in the Northern Hemisphere at the moment  :150:
