Unstable Atmosphere May 5, 2011
7:13:30PM "TOTO II" GMC Skywarn Mountain bike with full gear on the scene. This is the heaviest of the five bikes of this model for the weather station. I get an occasional snicker from passing Escalades., but also get a lot of "thumbs-up" and beeping horns. If they only knew, you can't beat the rush of adrenalin pumping these rigs and then arrive on a weather event like this! These bikes run year round in all kinds of weather and can ride though 6 inches of snow. The motor is a vintage 1957 weather spotter with steel-toe loggers...me. (I have to stay in reasonable shape to climb the weather tower safely)
