It is a typical Manawatu winter sunday, and as much as I was looking foward to getting the Commando out of its shed today, I think I'll just hope for better conditions next weekend. Now Im no stranger to winter riding, Ive ridden around during a few Christchurch winters - with the excepetion of snow or ice - but when you're likely to be blown right off the road, the enjoyment of motorcycling is diminished to the point where you may as well stay at home and get to work fixing something. Or.. spend a few spare hours gazing at the computer screen. So, if you havent found enough already, you'll want to browse the what cool blogs yall checkin out? thread on the JJ Forums.
