Oh the mistake we make in trusting the little vermin.......... One only needs to have watched "Caddy Shack" to see how devious the little vermin are.

Seriously-

My first day off in the last 10

THIS is how I spent my energy


Clearing the 20-30 inches off the north side of the roof

Tough to get the scale in the sea of white crust

A minor spring(ish) day- made it into the 40's

snow melted fast- I could see over the snowbanks along the driveway




Some fog developed as the snow melted, balmy 44 degrees will do that



Long flat run out toward the northwest- promontory area. Little potential for ice on a north face out there





The Golden Spike parking lot-
A quick stretch and phone check before turning around

No trains runnin down these tracks

Chilly, but I looked like this in the helmet

I was kinda ham-fisted with the throttle

Again went out northwest, but now the snow has cleared off the dirt
Cool, upper 40's and windy.

I should at this point, introduce "Mr.Salty", a new mascot, generously donated by this year's secret santa (Hawk )


Gravel over clay- some gravel swim but quick, the clay was tacky


Coyboy Junkies played "Driving Wheel"


Mr Salty approved


A few miles later, "cowgirl in the sand"


That speck middle right is a golden eagle , she was on a fence, bolted as I stopped (sadly the camera was in a distance mode)




Salty used his Mojo and the ipod spun SRV's version of superstition




More in a few

...to continue


Headed east into an area called the "Salt Wells"- a dry clay crust in the summer, winter and spring turns it to a shallow dry lake


"Sloop John B"- had been awhile




"Man in Black"- Mr Cash


NO other vehicles for over 1 hr out there


My favorite of the day


Melted fast at the road's edge


For comparison, the same are last week (taken whilst out hunting)


Back to the moment




Mr Salty approved of the days events



Thanks All

Spring is upon us, give or take a couple of months.

The tires are anakee 2's- have been as good as any non-knobbies Ive ridden. THey are very good on that tacky clay stuff. Okay in gravel. Everything is bad in mud/sand, save knobbilies. The Anakee 2s have been very good on pavement

I have had no issues with the cast rims, but typically dont do "heavy" offroad. My understanding is the pre 07 cast rims are from a different make/manif (German) than the post 07/08 (non german), not sure how much that matters.
