    It's 35 degrees on a sunny Sunday morning here in the Northeast. Dammit!!! Supposed to warm up to mid 60's today :D, low 50's by 10am.

    First oil change scheduled for this Thursday, around 1500 miles on the clock.

    Preparing for hibernation. C-Tek is out and ready, she will receive a loving bath with detail of engine bay and interior from me personally. Fuel stabilizer and full tank of high octane, mouse stickies/traps/poison and mothballs will ring the garage floorplan and the car itself.

    Nov 1 she goes to sleep til the salt and pea gravel get washed from the roads in Spring :(.
    But for today...I'll ride her good so we both enjoy the moment :cool::p:D!!!

    Man, I love this car!!!

    You are right, past couple of weeks have been bad for traction here in MN too. Going over 80 degrees today, could be one of the last days to feel her "hook up" for a while.

    Its really too bad your weather is not better in the Fall and Winter so you can be out and about happily.

    Here, it's currently 58 degrees with a projected high of 83. By December it will take me at least 30 minutes to scrape the sunshine off my windshield; in January, probably 40 minutes. Luckily I have a good base tan so I shouldn't burn over the "Winter".

    Ok...bad joke. I hope your HC is raring to go after hibernation!

    I am not looking forward to winter....but generally we have some decent days well into November.

    You can't beat a fall drive in the Adirondacks....in a Hellcat.

    There is a reason there are more hellcats in Texas than any other state. We can drive them all year! You're just living in the wrong state.......;)

    I feel for everyone that has to store their Cat for the winter So glad our weather allows us to drive almost year around. Only a few days of snow a year and it does not last long.
    DGatzby HD weather here also!
    Hard to decide Cat or HD?

    Hey Red Harley. Nope, over 80, fall leaves in bloom. I have the perfect little solution for this afternoon, I will walk right by the Hellcat confident it will bark on my next command:

    image.jpg
    This little 93 FXR is better than showroom perfect. Internally the little sleeper of an EVO puts down about 95hp and over 90 ft-lb. Andrews gears, Backer shifting forks, SE clutch to hook it up, new rubber and shocks after Sturgis this year. Oh no, my decision is rather simple later this afternoon.

    My summer tires would turn into Fred Flintstone-mobile rolling rocks :eek:.

    All those bikes look great! I've had mine out on Christmas Day in the past when no snow had fallen and the roads were free of crap. With the right gear riding is fine...just can't lean as much on the cold road and rubber.

    Temps hit higher 50's...signing off for now...time to enjoy!!!
