We decided to watch WSB coverage from Assen.................................  its effing snowing there so no racing...... what a crap day  :151:     

I'd just got back in to watch it as well. 😞

Not as bad as the other year at brands,  everyone was building snowmen in pit lane on Saturday afternoon.

As Sonny said the thunder and lightening in Texas caused morning practices for Moto GP to be cancelled as well.

And I got absolutely bloody soaked - a sunny morning tempted me out and then turned into torrential (well in U.K. terms) rain.  April showers were never like this when I was a lad  :125:

On Monday last I was riding around in 19c and thought that I should take the liner out of my jacket - yesterday I was out again and it was cold with hail showers!

High 60s, clear and brilliant sun, light winds today in NE Texas. Every HD in town came out of the garage and hit the boulevards, so I joined them on my Vulcan 900. We all just rode around town and waved at one another, too cool for school. Excellent Sunday afternoon.  :123A:

Glad to hear that you are enjoying some good weather Sonny

And great to hear that you haven't been hit by the storms in the East

On Saturday managed a 2017 mile run from Biggar down to Kielder and back on the back roads  :biker1:



Weather was sunny, but it was very very cold.
It did not get above 3 Deg C (on Tango's dubious outside temp reading) and with the wind chill it felt even colder, so I had to stop off at a couple of Cafe en route.

Tower Knowe - Kielder


The Glen Cafe, St Mary's Loch


But I didn't really get cold, as I had my headed jacked on full blast  :36:
The forecast is for it to get much warmer by the end of this week  :123A:

We've had 2 or 3 mild wet winters here -- no snow or ice to speak of. I would celebrate but it won't last... what we have going on now is weather instability, weather unpredictability and wild swings... and I know the inevitable downside is coming since other parts of the States have been crushed by Arctic weather while we've been getting off easy. Now we are rounding into tornado and severe thunderstorm season.  :goggle:

Richard, it's good to see the venerable Geoff Orange #1 out and doing its thing across the Scots countryside. Ride it til the headers rust off, brother!  :123A:
