Welcome Christer. Everybody on this forum seems to be suffering from bad weather.  Unless of course you are one of those smug members from Sydney, Florida, California

Christer, greetings from the U.S.! It makes me feel a little better  to know I'm not the only one longing for warmer weather's return so I can do more than just sit on the bike making engine noises... Right?

...guys?

Well it's `warmed up'  now to 4c ::)  here in Kent and predicted to climb to  7c this Sunday  :-*  , so the Bike will just have to come out and brave the climate before it takes root in the Garage.....  ;)

Welcome Christer
Nice to see a second pin at Sweden
We Vikings do not suffer from bad weather (some snow) we call it winter (only longing for the coming spring ;))

I'll send you a 5kg jar of Sydney sunshine RTman if you send me a bag of lush green pastures (like we see in Midsomer Murders each week).  ;)  Aussie weather can be sunny and pleasant, but it can be slightly uncomfortable as well; I think they're forecasting the maximum temperature in Marble Bar might hit 50C (122 F) today?  I rode the Stuart Highway in the Australian Outback a couple of years ago when it was really hot, riding past fields of long brown grass.  When I stopped for a break I realised it wasn't grass, the ground was so hot all the snakes were standing on the tips of their tails..!!
