When you see this on the info-display, the season is over....
« on: November 06, 2013, 10:49:05 am »
Wasn't a pleasant ride riding 60 km home from work this evening. Pitch black and close to zero degree celsius (32 F). Even got below freezing reading the last 10 km. Thunder-nugget is officially garaged until April. brrrr

Mine is parked too.  I was down to 18F on my last trip.  I give up.  Until next April.

  • It's only really cold if you fall down in it.

We've been out at 11F. I wish I could tell you it was enjoyable, and part of it was (the riding part) but the trip home was lousy. The cab of the tow truck just was not comfortable at all and the suspension was downright awful :-(

And no, we did not crash or anything so dramatic but we did overload the main fuse on the bike- which was entirely my fault when I wired the heated gear and headlights quite some time before. What an ugly wait for the tow that was- without heated gear :-(

HA HA!!  Correct... something got lost in translation...  I googled thunder nugget and got myself a laugh!  ;D     I named my bike " Dunderklumpen"  (A more correct translation is "Thunder lump")  after a Swedish childer book caracter that became an animated film in the mid 70th.  A honestly kind full-figured man who brings dolls to life and takes them on a journey. (In this case, I'm the doll that my Thunder lump will take on long adventures far away  ;) )

I think that the Thunder nugget is something that you get after you eat at McDonalds.    :o
