Now, I know no one is really happy with just a little tease of a video. So, here are the accompanying photos to my ride in the snow.
So, let's go with the fact that it was cold that day, so maybe it was "brain freeze" that prompted me to do it. Three degrees is really cold…. That's negative 16 degrees celsius.
So…. it was
Long Johns, under
Leather pants, under
Snowmobile "Farmer John" bib overalls.
Tee Shirt, under
Long sleeved shirt, under
Wool sweater, under
Goose down vest, under
Winter Motorcycle coat.
Wool scarf, under
Wool Rag mitts inside leather mitts;
Wool rag socks inside leather boots ….
And we were good to go….
The worst part of the trip was getting to the main road…. that's what the video from yesterday shows… After that, except for some sandy spots (laid down by the salt and sand spreaders) it was pretty clear sailing - all the way to..
The Portland Headlight..
All, in all, looking a bit different than when Beemer Girl and Oilburner were here….
After a brief stop I decided to move on to another close by lighthouse - actually, two lighthouses - called, interestingly enough, Two Lights. (There are at least 70 lighthouses in Maine. You can make a whole vacation trip doing nothing but riding the coast from lighthouse to lighthouse).
Getting to Two Lights was a bit tricky… there was quite a bit of snow… I didn't fall is the good news, I didn't have time to take pictures is the bad news.
Parking at Two Lights is right down by the sea. It's a fun place, regardless of the season…
A good look around, then off to….
Where I doffed everything except what proper behavior requires and settled in with a great sandwich and many cups of coffee…
