Snow?

Snow?

PostBy: McKoker On: Mon Nov 10, 2008 6:53 pm

My neighbor's father went to PA a week or so ago....not sure what part. He claimed they got 12" of snow while he was there.

Anyway, we got our first snow last night and today..about 3-4". But, it's the snowbelt. Drive a few miles in most any direction from our town.....nada.

Anybody else seen powder yet?

Update: neighbor said his dad was in the Johnstown/Altoona area

Your neighbor's father was right. The Pocono's got a foot of snow. We missed it completely. :( So far no snow in the forecast.

When I was a teenager for winter riding we would drill and put small bolts through the rear tire then lay rubber over the bolt heads to protect the tube.

Your a diehard! 8-) I park the bike when the temp falls below 65* -- after riding around in 115* heat of Phoenix, the cold air just feels 100 times colder........ naww, I'm just a puss. :rofl:




We had some heavy sleet for about 10 minutes this afternoon -- looked like the end of the world rolling in, with the dark, black clouds and all. 10 minutes later, the sun was out.

This is perfectly normal NE weather :roll:

Chemung, I used to do that with the CR125 that I posted a pic of in the motorcycle thread -- me & a group of buddies got to talk to a guy who raced professionally, & he gave us the inside scoop on the angle of the studs, what size to use & the firehose, or rubber-over-the-tube trick. Nobody could touch us out there (local frozen lake). My 125 was smoking 500's ! :lol: It was just like riding on pavement, only you could drift in every corner without high-siding. :up:

Ran them on a frozen lake, Cool. We just drove around town and in fields.

Had a guy come over to me at the gas station on the way home. Tells me I'm a die hard and that he has been thinking about beemers, but they're always too tall for him. Just sold his Hardley and wanted a bike he can ride 600 miles a day (whoa) When I told him they make a short version he was surprised no dealer had ever told him that.

I didn't have the heart to tell him I was quite surprised by the snow as the weather forecast was for clouds only....heehehe

It's only a few miles from my house. We go once in a while in the summer.

I've never been able to touch tip-toed on any bike I've ever owned -- except the Harley. I just hang my ass off the side when I need to stop! :lol: You should have seen me on the DRZ! :lol: :lol:


They screwed up the forecast here too -- said sprinkles in the morning, then all sun --- but I took the truck in.... :oops:

You have more brains than I do...Just ask my wife! She wasn't too pleased with me riding home in the snow...ah well...she should be used to it by now.
