Not your fault; your definition is what the Internet says. But the word was supposed to be logarithmic. That phrase is incorrect and repeated all over the Internet.

Damn. Now I've repeat it again.

snow is a good sound attenuator. flat clean ice, not so much.

68Db on the A scale. Yes, I measured.


Looks like we'll finally be needing the plow this weekend

You've got nothing on this guy, Ben

This is going on Sunday at Norm's, a pretty cool bar outside of Fort Atkinson. I've never seen a sport bike on ice. Interesting.

We should. I need to get out and drill though. From what the fishermen are saying, the entire west shore is completely fooked with the wind shift last week. With Nathan in wrestling and Bob in MKE, my local spotters aren't around for daylight drilling. I don't want to venture out by my lonesome.

I'll be out Sunday. The boy has a BB tourney on Saturday. Hopefully with a front tire that holds air this time. I didn't think I needed a rimlock in the front.. Lesson learned..

I will be out sunday as well. may head to mke saturday.
Due to the cold I have yet to get my pipe or oil changed on the mxc. Hopefully Saturday afternoon.
may bring both bikes and swap wheels for a back to back comparison. Initial thoughts are much less shifting on the exc, and not nearly the low end snap.

Is the ice ok to ride up there?
Or is it all cracked up?

If it isn't rideable, it could be a good weekend for the Rock Lake Open Invitational.
