This snow and cold needs to quit. I'm thinking I might plan a Tennessee trip via scooter in the next month or two. Why the Hell not. I have some vacation saved up.
With a URAL you can say "F U!" so snow! Just put on a snowmobile suit and rock and roll!

I'm also looking for cheaper gps options. My tomtom ONE works awesome but I can't get a ram mount for it. I was just jaming the suction cup thing between the seat and tank on my xr.
Yup.. random night.
Why not get a ram mount for your fancy phone? I use this one for mine:

I will be busy this weekend with the little one, but if the weekend holds out like it's supposed to I will HAVE to find some time to ride for sure!

WHAT? A little young for a hack?? How about a challenge.... you and your scooter and me on my 900lb GoldWing hack, strictly off-road, no pavement allowed, only gravel roads and two tracks. We'll see if your old enough yet to even be able to handle an off road hack.

Loser buys the whiskey.

Just remember.....the wisdom and cunning treachery of age will always overcome the strength and skill of youth....

Your confusing lust with a manifestation of obsessive-compulsive disorder and the need to acquire more and more motorcycles of all kinds. THat's my professional medical diagnosis.

We rode out to Utah a few years ago and kept trading bikes because he was cramping up on the ST. It even felt cramped to little o me. On the hot days the ST puts out mucho heat and the PC very little. As much as I like the ST its just not for me. And besides, senior chicks dig the PC. You rode my bike and are probably still lusting...Nuff said.

Yes, those senior chicks with their rebuilt hips and knees would rather have a step-through.

I was in TC yesterday. Looked like January. At least the bay wasn't frozen. Maybe we should have taken Jeff up on his invitation to visit NM.? Never too late.

If I had the $$$ and the vacation time I would, unfortunatley I am just a workin stiff with lots of years of work ahead. Good thing I am just a youngin' in my 20's.

I haven't seen the Bay freeze since I moved up here 4 years ago. I can tell it its getting later in the year tho, snow is melting on the road almost as fast as it comes down. Also, it could be worse, my brother up in Pellston just got 18 inches of fresh snow.

Hey old goat.....hold off a bit before you head south. We are getting there with the servi-car.



You'd be the hit at the senior center down there amongst all the other snowbird with a *motorized* 3-wheeler. You'll have them blue-haired sweeties lined up around the block waiting for you to give them a ride!!!

Dude, I'm going to Texas not Florida. No blue hair there, just Blue Ribbon. Besides I've put in seat time on a CB 360 and don't care to put in any more.

I told Stephanie we should do this in the living room with one of my bikes.



She said something about it being a cold day......

Perhaps she would be more agreeable if there already wasn't a bike in the bedroom?
