If you are shivering in your boots, well, as I write this it is a sunny Saturday morning in Sydney Australia 76 degrees and warming up to high of 81. I am not in Sydney, but some of our members do live there... we can always dream...

In the mean time lets dream about these two great cats that have been nominated for the February 2018 Ride of the Month. Nominees, PLEASE post some more pics! We love pics!
