You have a FAK, right?

Weather seems to be averaging about ten degrees in the morning the entire week.  Cold blast has come come through months early this year; crazy weather probably caused by global warming or something.  So cold, the light snow we had days ago still sits on the ground.  I don’t mind riding in the cold, but won’t on the snow or ice.  So…all the bikes are staying in the garage, connected to the warmth provided by their battery tender connections to keep each of the batteries charged up.
