Not hibernating, out riding. It was a bit bracing particularly when I encountered 30 miles of freezing fog.

No fun in riding on leaf mashed damp roads up here in the Borders. Mild last night at -3 deg c. Road salt liberally spread. No thanks. I really do want to hibernate. These short days are bad for my mental fitness.

We were out last Sunday 10 bikes and 11 members - starting at 2.5 degrees c and ending up at 9.5c by the time we got home.

We are are small club but apart from one or two older members (over 70) no-one puts their bikes away for the winter - it makes us laugh when dealers and Magazines start talking about "The new season" starting in about May - we've probably done about 10 rides out before the beginning of May. Looking at my fuel stats I'd done 1,454 miles before May this year :D . I try to post all our rides on facebook along with some photos.

Salt is a Bu**er tho' so I usually ACF50 the bottom of the engine , exhausts and fork lowers before they start salting the roads and then only rinse the bike off with cold water and dry with a blower.
There would appear to be a surfeit of prolixity and sesquipedalian content today please do not use a big word when a singularly un-loquacious and diminutive linguistic expression will satisfactorily accomplish the contemporary necessity
