Posted by: Rif Addams TITLE: MOTORIZED BICYCLES: How cold it is!
I was sitting here at home on Wednesday, staring out the window at the sunlight casting it~s golden rays upon the world. I was nice and warm inside, drinking coffee. The roads were nice and dry.
The temperature was at around 42 degrees F.
Suddenly I just couldn~t stand it! I quickly put the motor back on my 66 Schwinn Typhoon Deluxe, and was on my way! It was chilly but bearable with my layers of clothing and scarf. Around 3:00 P.M. I stopped over at a friend~s house and hung out for awhile.
I didn~t realize quite how late it had gotten, and how much the temperature had dropped. I had a 5 mile ride ahead and the temp. was now down to around 34 F. with the wind chill of travelling at 20 M.P.H. I had to stop about every mile to thaw my hands and face.
WOW! What a rush. It was so invigorating, good for the body, mind, and soul!
I was a giant popsicle when I finally got home...

I must be a masochist or somethin~! I just got back from doing it again! It is 43 degrees F. outside; but man, I gotta RIDE!
Moto-biikes are absolutely the bestest fun in the whole wide world!
I can~t get enough, I just wish my Moto-bike would go faster...
Well gotta go get some coffee to thaw these old bones out,
