I know I'm not that as good of rider as you Tim and keeping that blistering pace was what did me in but.....my wife didn't mention your name at all when asking what happened nor did she hold you responsible, I love you brother but you've got to let go of this go.....it was my fault 20 years of road riding at least and first time I've hit the pavement(racing in the dirt a different story) and a simple wash out...THAT WAS ALL MY FAULT FOR NOT PAYING ATTENTION.......if anything it's because I wasn't pushing and got lax.......I now hold Nick responsible for anything that goes wrong and my wife is clear to blame him.......I'll check back with this thread in a couple months when this subject is hopefully dead.

As far as the racing goes, I fully realize how serious that they are up north about that. I'm not looking for that. I was thinking that it would be a hoot to get a bunch of us together and go up for a fun day...maybe find out when there may be a bunch of locals just out practicing & horsin' around and wouldn't mind a buncha new faces out hammering the ice with 'em.
Last winter I took a set of shinko 244s and ran some small hex head sheet metal screws into the knobs around it... Since I was commuting on it I just did 2 rows, but it made a huge difference... It was pretty easy to pop the front up on ice... Just had to make sure I didn't lean it over too far on pavement...

I'm probably going to die on it following woodsrat on a leisurely ride so it would be of as much use as the parts bike.

I've had a ball on days when a heavy dusting of snow made things just slippery enough to be a hoot. Won't have to drive very far, either.
Let's all stud up and head over to oPaulo's place to practice. He really enjoyed me helping him to find his septic system a couple years ago when I first studded up the HonDeere tires.

"Can't ween 'em!

Back in about '72 I ran outa gas in Arvada Colo.
First car that rolls by rolled down the passenger window and hollars "Can't ween 'em! Stay put!
About 6 minutes later he's back w/a couple gallons of gas. He wouldn't take a dime. He, still chuckling, says "Just pass the favor on."

Damn humans. [gotta love 'em!]

It's on the list...
Rode to a R A Rally in Red River N.M. in '01 on a '75 /6. 166 after Joplin. Straight shot across the bottom edge of K.A. and down into the north edge of O.K. and across the National Grasslands to Boise City.
Big slabs and high-pressure hoses to wash out cattle trailers...3-year old pickups w/horse trailers at the end of endless lanes.
Fairly low speed/long days. Lotsa tired... no bordom.
Just an aside...On the way back from N.M. I swung up through Trinidad Colo. and east through La Junta on 50..about an hour east, I started seeing smoke way to the east and about dark+1 I had caught up with a pretty decent prairie fire.
The look on the officer blocking the west bound lane's face was priceless when I blew through the smoke rolling east.
[I got a real good look!]
W.R., I appreciate the opportunity to contribute to your delinquency.
...un-written reciprocity.

Wicked Trip talking

All this trip talking makes me want to go to Moab, Utah about the first week of April.

Road Trips

I like the part where I find myself asking "Why in the hell do I do this?"

I like the point at which a picnic table feels like a 4 star hotel.

Good friend and I had a conversation similar to this but about working on vehicles. We always hate it and swear when shits not.going right or were having issues but end up doing it again the next day or close enough. We figured it comes down to dna. Its just something in us that makes us do it and we pheen for more. Like a long motorcycle trip. You finish a 1200 mile 2-3 day trip and say damn that sucked. Then a month later cant wait for another ride.

I know I haven't posted for a while or even rode for awhile for that matter...but for some reason I had trouble quoting TooSlow4U. So I cut and pasted the following:

Okay, so what was the general consensus on a meeting place for a New Years Day ride? I don't who's leading, following or riding beside me. I just wanna ride!


~ So is there a New Years day ride being planned? My first ride with ADV'rs was a cold ride in December...just not sure what year???

Anyway, is there a ride being planned? Min. Temp.?
