From a pleasant Wednesday here in Sioux Falls with a high temperature of 51 to a day of Winter Weather Advisories with temperatures in the 20s, it can be a frustrating time for any motorcycle rider. Today, both of our Can-Am Spyders sit in the cold garage as I prepare the EGO snow blower to do battle with the snow. The batteries are fully charged and I'll be out in the elements once the snow stops falling. The fact that I won't be riding the Spyders for awhile just makes the snow sitting on my driveway look deeper than it should be.
By Saturday morning, I'm trading in my motorcycle helmet for a stocking cap any my motorcycle for a snow blower that goes goes from 0 to 3 MPH in 10 seconds.
Luckily, I was able to get knock some dust off both our Can-Am Spyders earlier this week on a day with above normal temperatures for the rare January ride. I was able to take both Spyders out for a short drive between work and sunset. The wife thought I was crazy but my smile told her I was happy for the opportunity to ride. In snow country, December through March is a longer period of time than the rest of the year for motorcycles riders. We'll take any good day we can get in for a ride on two or three wheels.
