Stopped for another coffee on my way home, and....My side stand broke.....Luckily for me Alan brought me some sewing last week... he'll have my stand before the days out :D :D
It just broke as I tried to kick it out. At least it didn't send the bike over on its side.

I dont think we've ever had anything like that temperture, I think the worst I've ever experienced would be around minus 15.

That is really cold, some of the materials are acting funny, like car tires and metals too.

I'd forgotten that Alan had a side stand I broke last year, he'd had fixed that one so we swapped. Bit of an effort to get the spring on. I use thin nylon cord to pull the spring over the stud wrapping it around my gloved hand.

Yes, the cold does funny things. Does -63 C in Siberia on the Omolon river count? How about -71 F on exercise above the Arctic circle in Northern Canada, now that one included tracks breaking on APC's and metal on some of the trucks just cracking from stress. Ah, such fond memories.... glad I live where -20 is coldest we generally see. I am envious of your getting out at this time of year Steven.

Our latitude where I live is 50.9097 and yours in Kamloops is 50.6745, Does that mean I live further North :D

Yes Steven, technically you are further north than I am but here is a bit higher elevation at 550M in the interior mountain range of BC. Today is good with -3 and just a bit of snow. No riding for a month or more yet.
