And . . .
Apparently I was the major topic of conversation between some deputies and a judge. I heard about it from a deputy. They were impressed with my gear and how I look like I'm from Alaska. I find this funny since it was in the high 30'sdegF today. Not what I call particularly cold. It's, also, funny to me since I wear less gear than I used to. I often used to be caught wearing too many layers and getting hot and sweaty which leads to cold and miserable.
He also wanted to know where I got "those things you have on your handlebars." "HippoHands," I told him and he sent himself an email on his smartphone. He owns a Fury and a Goldwing, and while he would be the first to admit he's a fair weather rider he would like to be able to ride when it is "cold".
Cold. This weekend it is supposed to be cold. Next week, too. Let the fun begin.
- 38F/3C and dreary for the ride in.
- 37F/3C and overcast for the home ride.
