View Full Version : The "Cali Can't Hang" ride...

Well, after seeing all the Cali guys posting rides from the past weekend. Us Northeastern people decided to show you all how its REALLY done!! Madrivermotoco, myself and Jesse (no idea what your name is on here, Hahaha) all met in Wakefield around 12:30. Jesse and I had about a 50 mile ride there, it was around 30 degrees when we left. We blasted down 95, hooked up with Madriver and he took us through some good roads around NE Mass. Making a few stops along the way to warm up, we finally stopped for lunch in Beverly. Once done we, more or less, parted ways and I got home around 6. It was 27 degrees when I got home.

And Cali guys, don't get your panties in a bunch. I'm just having some fun. Anyone can ride when its 50 out...

My wife and I took our kids out by the lake to see a Christmas light show. We don't have a car big enough for all of us so I have to ride when we all go somewhere together. We left at 7 pm, it was 45 out, got home at 930.

You're right, riding in 50 degree would have been easy

That's awesome. I threw my bike back together last week to ride on the two nice days we had then the other day I got my new helmet so I of course I had to try it out. 38 when I started but the wind chill made it below freezing, rode about 2 hours till I could barely pull my clutch. 28 degrees plus whatever the wind chill was when I got back. Brrrr.

I dig that CB man.

If it's above 15 and the roads are dry I ride.

I lurked the photos on Instagram earlier of this, looked like you guys had a lot of fun I'm jealous. I can respect a good foul weather ride, it used to be a tradition between my former brother in law and myself out in the Pacific Northwest just before Thanksgiving or Christmas. Now I'm one of those "fair weather" Cali guys but where I'm at right now is no joke, 27 would be a warm change of pace. I'm not about to jump on a bike and go hauling ass around Alberta, a snowmobile yes but it's made for this cold ass frozen land.

This is unusual, The Jesse I know was always the 1st guy anywhere. Glad the East Coast is treating him well!
