Got a little nutty yesterday and took my favorite one out for a ride down to where I used to work to get a sticker. Was a bit cool out but I got a new pair of gloves while there so the rest of the ride was much more gooder wink Thought I better stop and get a picture or no one would believe me out riding in the cold.

If you had lower, normal height bars, the wind wouldn't whistle down your sleeves and freeze your armpits.

Anything over an hour riding with lower bars and my hands go numb. Don’t know why but with my arms straight out they don’t. Also keeps me from gettin too ripe on a real hot day smile

That Beezer knows no bounds.

There is also the certainty of knowing you will NEVER see another one like it parked next to you!

I remember riding the A10 to that place to meet you guys for lunch one blistering hot summer day. Matter of fact, I rode for 6 hours in a mesh jacket with only a pint of water with me, and just about fell out from dehydration after I got there! So maybe a little "cold" is good ... !!

Good for you... I thought Id get a ride in this weekend since the sun was shining but it was not to be.... Son moved close by and now since I have a pick'em up truck I have become the delivery boy for facebook market place furniture .... Woke up this morning to a text from our tree guy saying he would be here in an hour to take down an 80 ft tree that needed doing so I spent the rest of the day cleaning up wood... No rest for the wicked !!! Glad you made it out though ... Jealous - yes !! smile

Love that bike, Tim!
I'm glad somebody got out for a ride this weekend. I also had "plans" to get out but a fall down our basement steps on Friday left me feeling a bit beat up. laughing

Thought I'd best take it easy on the weekend.

I thought maybe some of you guys would remember that old honky-tonk joint. We’ll have to do another weekend camp on the hill one of these days.
Sorry to hear that Tom, I know I don’t bounce too well myself these days.
I hope so Bill, it’s snowing a bit as I sit here at home tonight and after the year we’ve had, some rallies and camps in the new year would sure be something to look forward to!

I second that! I was really hoping that I was finally going to make an Ohio Valley BSAOC meet this year but that didn't happen. Heres to NEXT YEAR!

Thanks Tim, I don't bounce too well either apparently, although I'm pretty sure I used up another life, Not that I'm a cat but I must have at LEAST nine lives- that is to say I began with nine, by now there's probably only a couple left! laughing Pretty darn lucky, is all I can say. Worked a full day today (9 hours) and felt pretty good about doing some actual physical stuff. First long-ish day in many months. Am happy to report it went well.

Meanwhile I still wonder what 2021 has in store for us. I know there won't be any tours going out right away. hoping some of us can get together for some motorsickle ridin and beer drinkin. At the very least. I'd say that 2021 can't possibly be any more F'd up than 2020 but don't wanna jinx us.

Here's hoping!

Had a number of good trips this year, and everyone, including the BritBikers, kept things reasonable with regard to the current infectious disease concerns.

It only hit 30 degrees here today, with a couple of inches of snow. I didn't even go outside to work on a bike, much less ride one.
We had some great rides this year. Here's hoping that 2021 will be back to normal. beerchug
