Northern Ontario CBR

So last week I was suppose to go for my road test to get my full M (motorcycle)license. I work 12 hour rotating shifts so the test was between my night shift and got woken up by a phone call from the testing place saying they have to cancel due to road conditions. I thought "road conditions"? what do you mean then I looked outside

(I know its of my truck but like hell im putting the CBR out in the snow haha)
Looks like I wont be doing my road test till next spring now haha

But some good came out of it tho, I spent the afternoon putting on my fender eliminator. The reviews are right the Hotbodies is pretty low end but for 40 bucks im not going to complain
On to the pics, I waited till some of the snow melted the next day to wheel the bike out

That's a bummer. Canada needs to invade the US West coast. The whole thing.

Lol I shouldve kept my ice tires from my CRF450R haha. They have to be one of the worst thing to mount, the tire is so stiff and if you ever slip the iron goodbye knuckles

We had a nice bit of snow here last night and the city trucks have been out spreading salt. Just tucked my bike away this morning. Made it to the first week of Nov last year, but got cut short this year. Is it April yet?

You guys got more than we got (just dusted in Sudbury).

Unfortunately, I've sold my CBR, but it's still in my possession. I have to get it to Ottawa. I've been waiting for a break in the weather so I can do a banzai run to deliver it.

Ya know, even before it sold, I was having regrets. I hadn't ridden it much in Sept and when I rode it to the dealer for the safety... I still like it better than my CRF250. Who knows, maybe I'll lose my mind again next year and either find another one or spring for the CBR500.

All night a work I was listening to the radio for the weather and kept saying chance of rain, and at 6 am on the way home from work the roads were drying up and thought good I can live with a bit of rain during my road test.... They got that weather report wrong lol.

No snow down here so far, but have had plenty of opportunity to test the cheap rain gear I got (which taught me don't buy cheap rain gear) recently.

Weather reports...lol.... if I got that much wrong at work I'd get fired.
