Let the colds\flu fly! In a normal winter we tend to jump from warm temps to cold ones quite a bit. Just about each time this happens people start getting sick.

Oh gee, thanks.

Last week I had bronchitis, this week a headcold. The bike is sitting here wearing its Nokians and looking disgusted with its engine.
