The Winter Blues

I admit it. I’ve been a bad blogger lately. It’s not that I don’t have anything to write about; in fact, I have lots of images, videos, and reviews that I want to post! So why don’t I post them?

It seems that I’ve been diagnosed with the winter blues. As I write this, it is a balmy 9F outside and actually -8F with the wind chill. Oh yeah…and there’s ice and snow on the road.

In all reality, I should be thankful that I got to ride all the way until the middle of November. In Colorado, the weather can be very unpredictable from October through May. It’s been a great season and the Bee and I got to spend some nice time together over a distance of 3,000 miles.

That isn’t much to many of you, but for me – a husband, father of three kids, full time student (just graduated), and full time worker – I think 3,000 miles in 6 months is pretty respectable!

So already I feel a little better. Just writing again on my blog makes me feel a little bit more in touch with the bike. I look forward to sharing more pictures, ride videos, and other bits and pieces along the way, and I hope you all will enjoy it too. With a little luck, the winter blues will be gone before too long!

Meanwhile…I’ll be dreaming about warmer weather, and nice open roads like this…

  1. I battle the winter blues every year…it’s like a part of me is dormant from November to March! I think what causes it with me is the lack of being outside in the fresh air, so even in the dead of winter I try to get out for a jog or walk at least a few times per week no matter what the weather. It helps!
