Got a ticket for violating a travel ban? I thought quads, motorcycles and snowmobiles were exempt.

We got a couple feet. My wife did ok with the snowblower, but she wasn't too happy about it. She didn't realize that it was so much work wrestling it around. I did my share cleaning off cars and whatever else I could. One of my trees broke and knocked out my power but the crews got it hooked back up Saturday evening. Those guys are awesome.

Tomorrow is my big day. It's outpatient, so you guys don't have to worry about bringing me flowers or anything. It'll be quite a while before I ride the loop again. I can probably ride easy stuff in a couple months, but a fall would be very bad. I'll stick to piloting the pumpkin mothership for a while. Oh, and since I won't be riding all the time, ill can use my time to finally get that CR500 rebuilt. Can't wait.

the travel ban was supposedly really strict in RI this time, except it said if you had no heat, then you could travel, which was a pretty big portion of the state....typical RI.

anyway, looks like I cancel that big order from the florist, good luck with the surgery.

I couldn't wait to see how he did when he got back to his old tracks. First one through always has it a bit easier.

Go back to my post and get the rider to 3:30 and when he starts laughing, hit the play button on PeeWee. Both vids together No doubt about it!!!

Then just keep hitting the replay arrow on Pee Wee.

that's great! I was liking that he was laughing the whole time but the PeeWee connection was some next level shit!

It definitely seemed a lot tougher for him when he was riding through his own tracks. That's a good bit of knowledge to store in the back of my mind somewhere in case I ever end up going snow riding in deep snow with some buddies. >note to self.. OFFER TO LEAD THE GROUP AND MAKE IT SEEM LIKE YOU'RE BEING GENEROUS I also liked that he was riding from a Harley Davidson shop!

Bob(noxious) and I were out there there last week for King of the Hammers and saw some of the motorcycle race. That start was awesomely epic...straight to a rocky uphill from the starting line. Instant carnage and mayhem...seeing it in person was an experience!
