A little motorcycle based humor to take your mind off the unfriendly riding conditions.
Your ride says a lot about you. Here (from an old Cycle World article by Peter Egan, slightly modified by other people) is a guide for selecting a ride consistent with your personality:
Ducati 916 SPS monoposto: My wife is having an affair with her tennis coach.
Honda St1100: I really do understand the stock market.
1967 Triumph T120 Bonneville: If I'd had this bike instead of a Cushman Eagle when I lived at the fraternity house in 1965, I might now be married to a former cheerleader named Veronica.
Harley-Davidson XR1000: All my left shoes are made of steel, and all my motorcycle boots have laces.
Yamaha TZ250: My other bike is a van.
Brough Superior SS100: My mother was an Episcopalian.
Moto Guzzi Eldorado: If I'd wanted a Harley, I'd have bought a Harley. But I didn't, and I didn't.
Honda GL1500 Gold Wing Aspencade: The wife and I both feel that donuts are an unfairly maligned and under-appreciated source of protein and minerals.
BMW R1100RT: The sound system on my bike is permanently tuned to Public Radio, but when I play it too loud I can't hear the cell phone.
Velocette Thruxton: I have a professional-quality dartboard in our basement rec room, next to the real ale tapper on the wet bar.

Triumph Speed Triple: I'm not waiting for any parts. Ever again.
Honda Elite 80: My mom is knitting me a warmer scarf for going to class.
Vincent Series C Black Shadow: If you need to borrow any books or videos on the Battle of Britain, the life of Winston Churchill or Gordon's defense of Khartoum, I have an extensive library.
Honda CBX: I can pronounce both "Soichiro" and "Irimagiri" correctly. Also I own many valve shims.

Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa: The Honda CBR1100XX was making me late for work.
Triumph Trophy TR6-C: I have seen the The Great Escape, starring Steve McQueen 27 times. And so have my two remaining friends.

1942 BMW R75: I show the Luger collection only to a few close friends who know how to handle them without leaving acidic or salty fingerprints.
