    twas the day before Xmas


    Twas the day before x mas , so we went for a ride.





    It was chilly for sure but we bundled up. I could have used that heated vest I just bought , but it won't be here for a few days anyway.

    The open spaces exposed to the sun have melted a lot but the more wooded areas are still burried , so no off road ADV for us today.




    We stayed close to the house and just kept adding small loops









    All the sand on the roads and the ice in spots gives you good practice at throttle control, thats for sure. Small inputs are the key.



    This road turned to soupy dirty, icey mess, which was fun until it dead ended and we had to U turn on the snow pack / ice. Obviously we made it back.






    We were only out for about and hour and a half but its cold with out heated gear.

    It was good just to get out for a while.

    Hopefully I can get another ride in before this year is over, and start a new riding year in a week or so.

    Cool... you guys are hard core!

    We need you guys to uphold the NESR flag for the
    rest of us during these winter months!

    I just need to dig a path from my shed to the driveway and I
    may be out too next plus freezing day.
