That's not nice to make fun of them because it's cold there. Heck, I can sympathize with them, it almost dropped below 70 degrees today and that would have totally sucked.
Anyway, even with our harsh winter I (bike 755) was able to get some riding in.... Here's a pic of Nicky Hayden about to stuff his front wheel into the six inch gap I left open between my front wheel and the curbing today...

Wait just a second!
Before all you warm weather guys start to brag about how you've been riding, many of us "Northeners" here in Wisconsin have also been having a great time backen' her in too
Myself, lobster and a few other Superbikers2 guys had a nice time this Saturday on the ice. Sure, it was a little chilly (about 5 deg.), but it was good fun, and the ice was excellent, smooth as glass
It looks like next weekend will be just about perfect, mid 20s!
To give an idea of available traction, Diesel joe has some cool pics on his site... http://www.dieseljo.com/
That would be way cool being on track with the best of the best!

January 17, 2005
Temperatures plummeted across the eastern half of the nation Monday, approaching an all-time record in northern Minnesota and freezing the Gulf Coast as a river of Arctic air pushed southward.
Thermometers registered a low of 54 degrees below zero at Embarrass, Minn.
``You keep living, but it gets old after a while,'' said Christine Mackai, the town clerk for the community of 691 people in northeast Minnesota.
Minnesota's record is 60 below, set on Feb. 2, 1996, in Tower, about 10 miles north of Embarrass.
The cold at Embarrass didn't stop the regular customers from getting their morning coffee at Four Corners, a cafe and gas station.
``Everybody left their cars running,'' waitress Trish Roggenbuck said. ``It was pretty much breathtaking when you walked outside.''
