You can put me down for a great big maybe. As for the deicer, I just run by the local dollar splash and do a quick blast down.

Here are some "back in the day" New Year's ride photos - just to make myself feel bad about being a weather-wuss.

Candiya, you gotta ditch Photobucket or pay! I deleted my account a while back.

Yup, we have a Polar Bear run here every year, it's about time I posted a thread about it. I like the challenge

Oh bummer - I didn't realize that the photos weren't showing! This is actually Mike's photobucket account. It looks like they changed the access to the photos since yesterday. Yesterday, I could click on the photos on his Photobucket site to view them, and today they just show the upgrade Photobucket icon. Ah well. If anyone's curious, they were the snowy photos on this page. NY ride in 2009 with Jim, Steve, Kat, etc.

The biggest killer for me is deicer. Last New Years run I went on ended up having to rebuild both calipers, replace the pads plus it took forever to clean the bike up and get all that crap off.
I rode my old Ninja ONE TIME in a drizzle right after they sprayed that shit on the roads. It took about two days before bolts started rusting and white corrosion started showing up everywhere. FRACK THOSE ICEHOLES!

There is a Poker Run starting at the Nisqually Bar and Grill in Olympia on New Years Day. May be something a little different than the loop.

My bike didn't get rusty after last year's NYD ride, where I was the ONLY one to do the loop. Rinsed it off with a hose a couple weeks later.

I'm down for a ride this year. Also looking at an April Fools Day ride. Lunch in Astoria anyone?

I might think about it. Depends on weather. On the Bonnie, even an Aerostich won't keep you warm if it's really nasty.

Just my little ride to green Mt. Left some nasty de icer on my bike. I've had to clean it a couple of times and still find it.
