It’s cold now, even here in Georgia. We skipped Fall and went straight to Winter, it seems. So, between the cold, windy days and the gray, rainy days, there are fewer opportunities to ride enjoyably. I confess, I bundled up in my lined, padded jacket and donned my insulated balaclava one day to brave temps in the high 30s, and it actually wasn’t so bad. But you have to allow for an extra 20 minutes of zipping and wriggling and de-fogging just to get prepared, and it’s easier to just take the car.

And my friends Billy and Melinda gave me a really cute stocking-hanger Harley Santa dude. He’s quite detailed, down to the box of tools, including tiny combination wrenches:
Hope your holiday is happy, and that you get lucky and are graced with a few unseasonably warm days so you can celebrate by spending some time in the wind.
