:grin: Wow I have not ridden in over a month. Great weather down here this week and was able to take her out. I rode for about 2 hrs. and only 5 minutes into the ride I realized "I love my bike". Sure am glad I have some people to share this thought with. :)

noj70,

We just took out bikes out today...it was 40f and cloudy today....It has been a little more than a week since our last ride.....

I get that feeling everytime I ride.....I call it Road Fever...I have a terminal case that would be fatal if I stayed home very long :)

Heather, 60F outside and you're inside painting? I think there are some Kentucky roads that need painted in a burnt rubbery color... Hopefully you'll get out soon! :)

My wife and I bought season ski passes to one of the local ski resorts last year and wouldn't ya know it.....no snow and to warm so any snow they got was wet and melting. :(

This year we are doing the "Pay as you go".

Now the real trick seems to be how you put a ski rack on your bike, ride up to the base of the NC mountains where it can be 60F in the middle of the state and cold enough for snow out there and enjoy some turns, oh wait it's the east so those must be skids on the ice. Oh well NC and most of the east has whistle cleans's problem this year, rain after every snow.

My brother ski's Mt. Baker in WC's territory on the days the weather won't let him be a carpenter....seeems to me he finds to many of those each year. I do know he has more raingear for his bike than I ever imagined existed...........

i hear ya there. we didn't have a whole lot of snow last year either and on top of that it was one of the colder winters on record. so, even when i did make it to the mountain when there was snow, i couldn't stay out for more than a few runs without freezing. and of course you know what freezing cold does to the snow, ouch ! last year was my second year on a snowboard, needless to say, i am back to the good ol reliable and fast skiis. i have only used my pass once this season, but hope to at least break ten, we'll see how mother nature helps me out with that !

Welcome RayB, obviously you are among the chosen few to make a great decision... ;-)

There is no place better to help you spend your hard earned $$ on upgrades.

I've looked at others on snowboards and thought to myself...."you just keeping using your skis". LOL :)

yeah, i think that is a wise choice. snowboarding is just so different. maybe if i started out with that i'd be ok, but i've been skiing for almost 20 years now so i have a certain mindset about how i should feel coming down the mountain. snowboarding just doesn't put me in that happy place !
