The Joys of Mother Nature

As some of you know, Mother Nature has been giving us Bikers the raw deal in the last year, with weather. Well She has done it again to us, a week of Chinooks and sunny skies had almost cleared up the snow and the Ice on the streets, enticing a few hardy souls to take their Dual Sports out and tease us cruisers.

Well as someone who is suffering from PMS (Post Motorcycle Syndrome) this was unbearable especially after last years incredible summer of below normal temperatures, snow and rain, and generally not fun riding weather, I was ready to get the Bike out and even go fro a 1/2 hour ride, to work out the fog.

Well the weekend is here, and guess what, Winter has started again, 3-4″ of snow and -16 Celsius temperature means one thing the PMS continues. However I am not alone in these thoughts, as the owner of Foothills Motorcycle Apparel, we have many customers into the shop today, and I feel better know I am not the only one Suffering. Most of the riders have trips planned to haul their Bikes down to the States to more temperate Locales and work the fog and the bugs out in the Sunny US.

Oh well what is a Biker to Do, I will just have to sit here and dream, about the long and winding roads, that I have yearned for since last summer, We have a series of Rides planned and we are looking at ways to help out with the numerous rides in the Calgary Cochrane Area, if you would like more information or to ask about ways we can support your ride please contact Betty Anne or Gary at 888-851-0619
