Two weeks ago I had five feet of snow in my yard! And that's on the level! Yesterday the temp got up into the mid forties so I was able to get the old T-120 out and she fired up first kick after a rest of a couple of months. The roads were pretty much clear of salt but lots of sand so had to be carful. I put on 50 miles and that was enough for my old bones but I really enjoyed the chance to get out and about. Makes me feel young again(well younger anyway). Happy New Year to you all. Dick

Having late December weather in the USA Northeast warm enough to ride in
isn't a bad way for the year to end-
and that's a big 10-4 right there, good buddy.
I've gotten out myself for a two wheeled jaunt- and
may yet squeeze in another before all is said n done.

That sounds like a fun Christmas / year-end blast.

That sounds great. I was doing the family and friends visitation jaunt so didn't get a chance to ride during the nice weather we just had but it was great seeing everyone. Hoping for one more nice day now that I actually might have time to fire up a bike maybe

right now, it's not the snow so much as the temps, it's 13 above zero this morning. Dick

It was nearly 50f saturday, unfortunately it rained all day, 8f when I left for work this morning


When given the choice between two evils I picked the one I haven't tried before
