Last year I let this site sit idle for the same reason you haven't heard from me in seven weeks. It's thirteen degrees outside and there's a foot and a half of snow in front of the garage. Obviously not riding weather. It's paining me not to be able to ride as the price of gas reaches $3.50 a gallon but I'm neither a masochist or a glutton for punishment. The roads are covered in snow more often than not and it's been in the twenties since the beginning of December. I was starting the bikes for awhile just to here them run but it's too depressing to look outside the garage and know I'm not going anywhere. 
Hopefully there's light at the end of February and maybe the weather will warm enough to make it possible to ride. In the meantime I just sit and watch the snow fall and think to myself "This too shall pass",
