Was a bit chilly....

My buddies driveway is shady, has a spring in it and was covered with 2" of ice most of the way up....that was not fun.

Dude,

How old are you? I rode the entire winter of 80/81. Didn't have much snow that year but it was cold as hell. You are a crazy man, I know first hand how brutal winter riding can be with the sand and cold.

How do you like the 3 wheeler?

I haven't seen very many on the roads over the summer, maybe 2 or 3.

It's my buddy's trike. He loves it. I've ridden it once for 30 minutes or so. Takes some getting used to, but not a bad ride. I won't buy one until I can't ride a two wheeler.

There aren't many in this area, but more are showing up all the time.

Ya, like you'd come riding in the cold.

Who was going to strap a rope to that poor Gixxer laying on it's side under the porch?

Any blue tick hounds under there too?

LOL....I knew someone would comment on the Ames store. It's been closed for many years.

We had a great time. Amazing how an hour on the bike can make everything look different!

Ya...going up wasn't too bad...back down was a little scarier with a 600 pound bike under me. I dumped about 40 pounds of rock salt on the ice just in case!!!

Saddlebags? Who has those? My bike has panniers.

cell phones go in a pocket unless you are an engineer or wannabe.
