Default Why I'm not Riding Right Now

Do I need to explain?


Patiently (sort of) waiting for Spring.

Nice Bike and Great PIC! Alot of us are suffering the same way. Being outside Chicago, we've gotten cold temps but hardly any snow. Nothing that even hid the grass. Again, I regret putting the bike into storage, just before Christmas.

Been riding the sled up here for the first time in two years. Got a foot of snow before Xmas and hit the fields. I call her the bee hive (500 2 stroke). Better than nothing but miss the scoot. Going to be near 50 all this week. Snow will be gone. Maybe I'll wake up one of the hibernating bears.

Well, this ol' bear went for a rumble yesterday, nippy enough I didn't go for the hour-long ride I briefly considered. Wednesday however, I'll ride in on my commute, 55 miles. Supposed to be around 40 in the morning, close to 70 by afternoon. I CAN DEAL!

I'll play!!

I took this one on Christmas day. I like the way the bike looks in the snow.
I was only out for about 20 minutes though.
