    T'was the early morning hours when the first snow fall
    covered the ground in this east-central Illinois town.
    The roof-tops were covered,the tree limbs were layered
    and with hardly a track in the newly fallen snow. Just before
    daylight I took my motorized bike for a winterland ride. I was
    wearing light weight winter gear and all caffined up. I turned
    on my ice-blue low-glow lights and what an awesome effect
    in the newly fallen snow I hooped and hollered and some came
    outside for a look. I heard one person exclaimed," What in the
    world is that thing." Little did he know, it was Night Time Sally,
    raising her skirt in her first winterland debuet powered by a belt
    driven GEBE.

    Yes! I was riding in that snow this morning, too. (near Peoria)

    It was beautiful. but it was too warm for my rainsuit. I was pedalling. So I did get a bit wet. But it wasn't enough to be a big problem. Other people thought I was crazy, but it felt great. And when I got into my neighborhood I came across another set of bicycle tracks, too. That was neat.
