I moved from upstate NY to Texas so I could ride all year and shoot big "horned" deer. Our deer look tiny compared to an Alberta deer. Now a new tradition is to go for a ride on Christmas day I love riding all year. Your welcome to come down any time to go riding.

I hit a bug -must have been a June bug or something- this morning on the way to work (on my 34 mile one way jaunt ) -I swear that thing went through my jaw and came out my neck. I went in to the bathroom expecting to see a bruise it hurt so much.

Hitting bugs isn't always fun and games you know

So, is "-6" like "20 below" to us?

I think there is another Alberta rider -maybe his name was even AlbertaWarrior. Have to think about it...

Edit-Soo.... I see you are from Calgary, not Alberta. My bad...

Very well, carry on

Calgary is the city. Alberta is the province or what yoid call a state. And u guys are in degrees where we are in celcius. Bottom line is 0 and below is the same i think for both. Im sure someone will correct me if im wrong. And ya i know the feeling about bugs. Got hit in the chest with a bee the size of a nickel. Though i accually had been shot. I pulled over to look for an entry hole and when i opened my jacket the sum b***h flew away hows that fair?

Yeah, I wrote a simple program for my calculator to convert celsius to fahrenheit and back. I use it to teach students how to write programs.

If you're at -6, we're at 21.2 degrees. That's frickin cold, and I'm not riding in that either! If it was zero to us, it would be -17.78 to you

Well, at least you didn't get the bee in a fullface helmet. Ever have that kind of excitement? Imagine trying to pull over on the freeway before you get stung in the ear

No but feeling it try to crawl in my ear was pretty bad. I might win that one but you win the polar bear award
