Happy Halloween!

This is T-H-E day for all those who ride orange Vespas!  Get your spook on you guys!

Changing the exposure on today's image of Lake St-Louis in the morning reveals more of who was hanging out all night just for this occasion.
Ride safely, and spookily!

Ha Halloween Vespa, I like that thought!

By the way... it is November and you are still riding!!!

Thanks Sonja! The weather's kind of holding in positive territory. Also I have better gear this year, the windscreen helps with the hands. If I had heated grips and a lined jacket I'd just keep going!

you can buy those one time use hand warmers, but expensive in the long run. How about an old fashioned rubber hot water bottle ? Fill it up at home and ride until the water cools.

I had an idea a long time ago with diverting your exhaust through the tubes of your bike, or with any watercooled engine, have a diverter to flow the water inside the handlebars.

it was freezing this morning, frost on the windshields, so no riding

Bob, it was cold today. Zero Celsius when I set out this morning. There was frost on the lakeside lawns. I had my visor closed to the last notch. My windscreen protected my hands sufficiently so that my fingers were merely cold when I got to work, not numb or anything. When I take my gloves off I put my hands one at a time on the headlight. Ahhhhhh! Feels great.
