Winter!

1st day of December & I had to fire up the snowblower :mad:

Had about 8" wet sticky snow with some drifts & ice chunks from the snowplows. More snow forecast for Wednesday. Guess I'll take the car to work the next couple of days.... :rolleyes:

Gotta have a little snow to make one appreciate when it's not around and we can be on two wheels!

Regards,

It's not the snow, it's the cold...

The cold I can deal with. Picked up an electric vest & gloves last year. It's the ice & snow patches on the road that are scary.
More white stuff coming down right now.....:(

Hey all; Here across the lake from you guys we have had winter for something like a month now. I did manage to get the bike out on Thanksgiving day, but I fear that will be the last time for awhile. I have lived here (in Michigan) most of my life, but have NEVER figured out why!! Only seven years until retirement, and we're outahere!!! have to go, got a drive way to shovel (again...) Vaya con Dios, Dutch

There were these three Eskimos in Wisconsin, and one time while they were
at their local bar, they got to talking about how cold it was outside, and
how cold their igloos were. They could agree on everything but whose igloo
was the coldest, so they decided to determine who, indeed, had the coldest
igloo.
They went to the first Eskimo's igloo, where he said "Watch this!" and
poured a cup of water into the air. Well, the water froze in mid-air and
fell onto the floor.
"Not bad" said the other Eskimos, but each maintained their igloo was
colder still.
So they went to the second Eskimo's igloo, and he said "Watch this!"
and took a big breath and exhaled, whereupon his breath froze into a
big lump and fell to the floor.
"Wow, that's colder than mine! "said the first Eskimo. But the third
Eskimo exclaimed his was colder still. So they ended up at the third
Eskimo's igloo. He said "Watch this!" and went into the bedroom, threw
back the thick furs, and retrieved one of several small balls of ice
there. He took it, put it in a spoon, and held a match under it. When
it heated up enough, it went "FFFAAAARRRRTTT".
He won.

Bye bye (I hope) winter!

The last of the nasty icy pile from the snowplows has melted!
(Plows did a number on the yard this year) Time to ride!! (After I get healthy) 1st club ride is this Saturday. Hoping to be ready to go for the Wild Goose in April.

Same here. Snow all gone but temps still in 30's and bike torn apart. Resealing the timing chain cover on my K1100RS and maybe mounting some aux lights. I will probably not ride until late spring anyway. Having operation on foot and got to stay off it for three weeks. That sucks but I have been putting this off for too long. Got to do it. Everyone enjoy spring and the ride.:D

This is a ride I did around Holy Hill a few years ago...

And here I was parked with a few of your friends a little later in that same ride:
