Yeah I should be around this weekend.

Oh mine's not parked for the winter. Nick's is. I don't have any other cars, just motorcycles, so when it's snowy (like it is right now, friggin blizzard out) it's a little too dangerous for my blood on a bike.

My buddy installed handle heaters off a sled on his Ducati so he could keep riding. Latest I ever rode was around Thanksgiving.

Blizzard??? Come on, ya wuss! Hahaha. Yeah my 325 is parked, the 318 is tearing it up in the snow now, been loving that! There's a reason I didn't get some crappy FWD car for a winter beater hahaha.

I still like the idea of 180F+ running through metal handle bars.

Haha. It'd just melt the grips!

I was thinking about getting grip heaters too. I might still for dry days. It's crazy how the wind goes through gloves. I had grip heaters on my sled and they were friggin awesome. The bike I've been riding around is a yamaha xt500, so it's just a big air cooled 500cc single. When my hands got cold, I'd just hold them on the motor at stop lights. Heats em up in a hurry.

Yeah yeah, so I was exaggerating a little. But it was coming down pretty good and blowing quite a bit too.
