That sounds normal to me! Just not the winter thing... here in Michigan winter means snow! You ever see snow? Seriously, I know a guy from the Virgin Islands that never seen snow till he was like 30 up here in Michigan. And he never understood why cars had heat!

Oh....and don't forget to post up some pics of you and the wife in the Members thread.

Yeah once i had the flu lying down and it started snowing (while in UK) my wife dragged me out to take and play in the snow and take some pixs. Although in Bahrain winter is temps like 10C just cool wind and clear skies, summer is too hot to ride

Thanks Gasman, Media is full of crap, yeah alot of ppl here are upset about america, but mostly ppl hate the government and politics of it all.. We do have an Navy base here and to my knowledge all is well, i have quite a few friends there. Bahrain's population is 600,000 local's and 400,000 (americans, euopeans,asians) that should give you a better picture i guess
How about you? where you from?

Those population numbers do put it in perspective.

I'm from Michigan...obviously in the states. Nothing major here... typical mid-west states mentality. I'm a biker and do what I can for my fellow bikers!

Ew... that would be hideous. I've been on a guard tower and watched 'em roll in... and you even smell 'em in your barracks, there is no sealing the sand out...

I've been through some high winds in construction zones and got blasted so bad that I could hardly see were I was going. My neck was red for getting sand blasted. I couldn't imagine what that would be like in the desert.

Yeah STAY AWAY from them! lol
We do have sandstorms sometime that get so bad your visablity reduces to about 200m.
The Good thing about living on this island is we only have two seasons, summer and winter. Summer is too hot to ride a bike but the good news is that it only lasts 4 months a year. After that the weather is generally cool and great for Biking.
