Chain Reaction

The fancy digital display* on the bike read -3o centigrade.

At such temperatures the visor is so cold, even the meekest of exhalations will cause it to fog up.

Unable to hold my breath for the entire 20 minute journey, the visor fogged up fairly quickly.

Eager to actually see where I was going, I flipped the visor up exposing my face to the sub zero temperatures and biting wind.

Which made my eyes water.

This water promptly froze.

Freezing my eyelashes to my face!


* While this may be a common feature in cars, most motorbikes don't even have a fuel gauge. Actually, anything more than a speedo and an indicator light on the "dash" is positively hi-tech.
