Hi in Cold Canberra

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by giggsy, Jul 9, 2008.

  1. Hi Guys and Gals

    I have been a lurker for a while now so I though its high time I jump in and introduce myself.

    I have been riding on the road since january 2007 but in November 07 got my first "real" bike which is a shadow 750 and I love my baby.

    Don't laugh cause I ride a cruiser. I am only 5ft so don't have alot of options.

    I love getting out on the bike but it doesn't happen that often especially in winter but trying to ride at least 2 -3 times a month.. groan I know.

    Look forward to chatting with you all

  2. Hey there's not much incentive to get the beast out of the garage when it's as cold as a mother-in-law's kiss outside; do the Canberra winter thing and bunker down for a few months and surf Netrider :LOL:.
  3. Welcome to NR !!

    "Winter" ?? :?
    What ? You don't have wet gear? :p
  4. Yes I do have wet gear but the cold still gets through. I need to HTFU I know but I am getting there. Heading to Nowra on the last weekend of july and went that way a few weeks ago and it was very cold. I just purchased a new winter jacket so should be warmer this time around
  5. Welcome to the best forum on the net :grin:

    I suggest you try wearing a full body wetsuit under your wet weather gear for lots of warmth. (im serious)

    have fun!
  6. yeah but I am 5ft nothing and not the skinniest chick out there so its really hard to get clothes to fit.. i mean realllllllllyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy hard
