A Mid-Winter Ride

It’s been a poor winter for snow-lovers here in St. John’s. We had over 100cm (39″) of snow in January, but it was usually followed by mild temperatures and rain so it didn’t stick around long. Today, February 1st, the temperatures reached to almost 10 degrees C (50 F) so of course we spent the balmy Sunday afternoon on the bikes. The task of washing the salt and grime off afterwards was completely justified by the looks of disbelief and envy we got from just about everyone!

It’s the first time I’ve ever ridden a motorcycle in February, which is usually our snowiest month of the year. The forecast for tomorrow calls for a high of -7 degrees C (19 F) so I think it’s safe to say that today was an anomaly. It sure breaks up the winter though!

The Suzuki’s and the ice wall on the South Side Road. It is February, after all.

The Vstrom. Not entirely sure why we always end up on a wharf, but it seems to be our thing.

Vstrom and DR650, with the Battery in the background. Barely a trace of winter to be seen.
