Too late, its a done deal. The red rocket is tucked in and the Stabil is stabilizing. Blue bomber is going under sedation soon too...I guess I'll just have to be satisfied by walking around in my speedo if I'm still in Mich by this weekend?

If you are out and about keep a watch for the forest rats.
Many were splattered along the roads today.

I will be doing my part to try and reduce the chances of forest rat and motor vehicle encounters.

Be nice young'n.... Yes, I am a fair weather rider and proud of it! Being gainfully unemployed I can pick and choose. Most of us have so many miles and days under out belts we don't need to get out just because the roads are clear. If I lived Up North I'm sure I would get in even more days but I'm stuck down here in the flatlands.. ...So don't rub it in ya rascal or I'll roost ya with the big DR if we ever hook up!

Looks like I am done for 2012 also. Supposed to snow and be nasty up North by mid-week and don't want my bike in the salt brine. So it stays at home . Time to change oil, clean up bikes and get ready for the trip SW.

No Bambies will be harmed in any way. I like Bambi too. Now, Bambi's mom and dad, well,... Darwin can be swift.

Bummer. I think you have too much faith in the weather man. It's only a 30% chance of snow on Tuesday up here, then sun for the rest of the week.

As a matter of fact I have. It always takes me a week to get back to sleeping normal after a time change. Waking up before the sun rises sucks! How does the working class do it?...... Stabilizing the DR tomorrow then plug her into the battery tender before heading south. Hopefully its nice enough so I can get in a little ride out into the country, maybe even a bite to eat.
