I love the holidays.

how about those Lions?
We've got a ton of snow over here by the lake. I keep imagining I hear bikes going by on Lakeshore Dr. I must be going crazy.

I might do a little ride in the neighborhood on the DR this weekend just to get out.

Not bad Charlie but hearing that little 125 go through the gears was better than hearing Bing Crosby sing White Christmas.

Play around in here for a bit. Kinda like a Christmas album. The sounds of Honda engines.

music

I was in Daytona in 73 when the torch was being passed from the four strokes to the two strokes. I remember being in the parking lot and hearing the brit bikes and japp bikes and Harleys going down the front straight during practice. That was music to the ears. :

Who won that year? Winner gets a cup of coffee and a day old donut at Charleys bike boutique.

I believe you are correct sir. Even though I was there I wasn'sure if it was Emde or Vesco. I do know that it was a Yami 350. Most of the top ten were on Yamahas. You won the coffee and donut. Enjoy.

Hey Than.
I got a shovel I would love to sell to you. It also comes with an extension cord.
Just go out there and ride.

Did you get your shoulder worked on? You going to be able to ride? I've been gone two months now. 83 today. I see the shit back home and it makes me want to stay longer. I'm bikeless but wouldn't want to ride here anyway. Too dangerous.
