Yes roads are fine. It's a bit breezy, but a good day.

I dug the DRZ out of the basement again yesterday. I rode through puddles, streams, mud, and snow. Turns out my really old gortex work / hunting boots are no longer water proof! My frigging feet were freezing!

I'm trying to figure out optimal BAC for a the twins home opener. I'm thinking high. Very high.

Somewhere in the .3 range? Or were you thinking you might want to watch the game, not take out a loan to afford booze, and live?

To your second point, don't be ridiculous, I keep a handle of cheap gin around for these occasions.

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend, I sure did. I took the Versys out of the shed on Saturday morning after the crazy lightning and thunder storm we had that kept me up after 5am.

I happened to get out on the bike Saturday after the roads were dry. Put on 120 miles on a group ride with some old friends on a new Yamaha Warrior 1700 and a Honda Shadow 750. Went from Cambridge to Roseville!

Sunday went to a family gathering. Another 30mi. on the odometer. Really windy on Sunday but doable.

Bike sure purrs (says the girlfriend ) and had a lot of grunt! Really happy with the bike so far!

It'll be back. The roads are clean, and so I am happy. Hopefully there is no cause to re-salt.

I got in a couple hunnert miles over the weekend, so that was very nice. I might man up and plug in tomorrow morning for the trip to work......or I may declare "arseholes" to it and drive.

I'm kind of fed up of plugging in all that heated gear shit, so I might just wait until it's above 30 in the mornings.

You going to the game?

I hear you can bring in your own booze? Is it true? $10 for a 24 oz beer is a bit much. I went to one last year (on the motorbike) and found a hole in the underground ramp to park at for $5 bucks on the SE side of the stadium.

EDIT: I just looked myself...


Entry Guidelines
Bags/Backpacks/Coolers
Soft-sided containers and bags 16" by 16" by 8" or smaller are permitted into Target Field. The Minnesota Twins reserve the right to inspect and remove any package or container or their contents. Coolers and bags of any size with hard sides are not allowed in the ballpark.
Beverages
Sealed, bottled water 32 oz. or less and soft-sided single juice or milk containers are the only outside beverages permitted into Target Field. Flavored water, performance beverages (Gatorade, Powerade, etc) are NOT permitted into Target Field. Guests may bring liquids required for legitimate medical purposes into Target Field.
Food
The Minnesota Twins permit guests to bring food into Target Field as long as items are consumed in the general seating areas. Outside food cannot be brought into any restaurant, club lounge or suite. Food containers must be soft-sided and fit under a guest's seat. Food that could be thrown as a projectile should be sliced or sectioned (i.e. apples). Additionally, any food purchased from the concession areas on Target Plaza is allowed into Target Field.
Prohibited Items
For the general safety of all guests the following items are not allowed into Target Field: ball retrievers, balloons, bats, beach balls, boom boxes, brooms, fireworks, flasks, footballs, Frisbees, hard sided coolers, laser pointers, lawn chairs, noise-making devices, weapons, wooden sticks, or rods. Small whiskbrooms and small souvenir bats are permitted.


Nope, no booze. Damn, it's just like the airport!
