Just wondering if I was on the only one who noticed how badly Peter was shivering when we first got there...


Yeah, I noticed it as well. Crazy Minnesotan fooker.

It was nice to meet you Peter B.:clapping:

:)

Wicking it up in the Carolina Mtns...

Just wondering if I was on the only one who noticed how badly Peter was shivering when we first got there. If Skooter had asked for his autograph at that time it would have been interesting to see him try to hold a pen. That crazy fooker rode 6 hours for breakfast, and my bike was reading temps as low as 29 that morning.


Oh, I noticed. That poor boy was shaking like a paint shaker. An 0300 departure for him for the long ride from the Twin Cities. Silly bastard. If I gotta be that tough to win the IBR, I am in trouble!

I froze my butt off while riding across west Texas Wednesday night/Thursday morning. At about 5 a.m. I finally had to park at a Denny's for many cups of tea. No thermometer, so I don't know how cold it was, but my guess is not near as bad as what Peter endured.

Heated gear for Peter/Skooter or no?
Walked away Posted ImagePosted Image Is it really crashing if you don't fall down?--
I wouldn't change a fucking thing; I've lived hard, played hard, and I ain't done yet. I've paid some severe penalties along the way, but the rewards have been so much greater; even if for just have participating in the game of life with utmost abandon. It's not who rides the furthest in a day, but rather in a lifetime. CBA member #1, IBA #31845 and very proud of both.

Yes for both. But when it's really cold..............

My upper body and torso were ok, but my legs, feet, and to a certain degree, my hands eventually started getting cold.

Yeah, Peter was riding at highway speeds at temps well below freezing for over 6 hours. You need really hardcore heated gear to keep up with that, IMHO.

It was nice to see a few familiar faces and also have the chance to meet some new ones. Thanks for coming up Greg.
Seems like I really only had a problem with the shivers when I stopped and unplugged. Funny that riding a sled when it's in the 20's you don't need much for staying warm but on a bike you can get pretty cold. Just shows the different amount of effort you're putting into it.
