    Who says Winter is here!


    Got my ride in today! The bike's got blinding acceleration straight through the curve, turns in very nicely, and comes in a nice yum yum yellow. It's a couple of cylinders short of a real bike, but that could be cured if we painted it green. LOL.

    Hmmmmmmm... Funny thing happened today....I went to the garage to start up the TLR, and it was GONE!
    Then I saw it running down the highway, with someone else on it!
    For a minute I though I was dreaming...But low, and behold it was only Ryan running at triple digits.....

    And I will NEVER paint it GREEN!

    Seriously, both engines come in the deal! I'll even let you ride it sometimes.

    Maybe next summer we will swap up bikes just to remind me why I like the V-Twin over the inline 4!

    117, not bad. I had a 150 mph wind gust today. No really Mark, I never broke 55. LOL. BTW, I'll assume your were boarding. You gotta start reading weather reports my man. That is some crappy weather. Bet you were wishing you stayed in the sack and gave the wifey a morning roll-over. Haha.

    I went for a little 60 mile jaunt on my 9R yesterday in southern NH. Corners were a bit sandy and the road was a little chilly for pushing hard in corners but it was nice to get out. Only saw one other bike out, a cruiser.
