I have one of those.  No windshields, no snow and the sun is out.  Sorry couldn't resist. :-*
From the Deep Deep South out in left field.  There are no stupid questions.  There are however stupid people asking questions.  🤣, this includes me.  😉

Postscript: Doug made it half way home before the chains let go again.  There was no damage to the bike (well, perhaps a little paint loss), and he was able to make the rest of the trip safely, although, with fresh, falling snow, it was a bit squirrelly......... ...  The chains are now ballast until he comes up with a new 'fix'.

Be damned if that doesn't make me feel like a little girl.

Lateness.

I like the garden hose idea - I knew a guy who did his with rope.
That's the combustion chamber of the turbo shaft. It is supposed to be on fire. You just don't usually see it but the case and fairing fell off.

at least put a piece of plastic hose over the chains to keep from buggering the rims

     Yup, the sight of chains on those knife edge flanges of those beautiful Borrani rims makes me cringe, but it's your dime.

I'm guessing you don't spend much time in the cold.  Our dogs love it.  Jenny (our previous dog) isn't looking to come in, this look says 'Please don't make me come in!"

It gets stale fairly quickly (-25c here this morning), but I'll take it any time over excessive heat (ie. anything over about 23c!)

My Ontario morning yesterday at -24C. I actually used chem warmers in my mitts, first time this year. And no, I didn't ride the bike there; the garage door was frozen shut  :D

Nice cross-country ski trail though.

Wonderful trails. All on privately owned hilly wooded terrain that the owners keep open so locals can ski there. And hike in summer. And f'in cold this week!
