it is was it is ....

so now to fill the once occupied time with something of equal reward ....

I'm expecting to go for one of these days today.... I should be working on the DR in preparation for a first of the year adventure, but I think the Vee needs to stretch her legs a bit.

All the ice you'll care to ride on.

Gets you off the couch with the added benefit of keeping you in tune for next season as well as learning some new limits of your machine.

I know riding motorcycles on the snowmobile trails is frowned upon here in Maine, but I hear that NH is more enlightened. What does it take to do so legally? I would assume some kind of OHV tag is needed, right? Does having a license plate take care of that? Even a set of new Trelleborgs is cheaper than gas to the west coast...

You can buy badly neglected bikes in the fall for pennies on the dollar to keep you busy all winter too
