    Who rode today?


    I went out for a 95 mile Jaunt. It was nice. I stopped by the Vanilla Bean Cafe and had a cup of coffee. There were no other bikes there. It was nice to get out. Fun times.

    I contemplated going out, roads are bare, but too much work to get my bike to the road did I just say that?

    Re: Who rode today?

    ice on the driveway...and still some ice in shady places on the roads....and big puddles and hidden potholes everywhere...

    I'm proud of myself for exhibiting restraint...a new capability for me!!!

    Degs and I put the finishing touches on the DRZ motor install and fired it up for the first time.

    41mm fcr flatslide carb and a 470cc motor

    Power+cold race tires with snow on em+cold roads = rear end all over the place

    Plus there was no seat, which is actually uncomfortable. Whoda thunk it?

    Got the KLR back together but spent all weekend hauling sand in my truck for the driveway and widening the driveway for the oil delivery tonight. Still 1+ miles in any direction is all ice/snow.

    I wish!

    Blew out a wheel cylinder on the truck (messing around in the snow) and ended up doing a full rebuild on both sides....late Saturday and most of Sunday......

    Re: Who rode today?

    We thought about taking the bikes out now that our garage purchase is going through. Only problem is they are snowed in pretty substantially, and I'm not about to shovel a path in someone else's yard. Would have been nice to get them out, but oh well. Soon.

    Re: Who rode today?

    I was contemplating taking my bike to class today, but I was in the same situation as mzdagrl. I walked out of my apt to see my bike snowed in on all sides and I don't have a snow shovel. I didn't feel like shoveling it out and riding in the sand/snow/ice/dirt that's all over the roads right now. Instead, I took my Piaggio Typhoon to class! I'll ride my GS500 again when the weather warms up a little or the roads clear up more.

    Re: Who rode today?

    rode my bike from my current place to my new place today...only ~10miles, but it's been a while

    cleared up the driveway real well the previous days in anticipation for this transfer

    hope there's no accumulation this week as the rest of my stuff still needs to be moved!!
