We use to pull each other behind work van on snow covered back roads using Romex for rope sheet metal for a sled because that's all we had.
Now that I think about it we were crazy. We hit bare spots on the road and would be up on the guard rails in the corners.

Saw a guy on my way over Snoqualmie pass the other day skiing behind a truck. Wind was blowing about 40-50 and snow was almost whiteout.

Forgot about this, I actually got a shot of this, heading back from Stevens Pass on WA SR2 yesterday.

Looks like someone forgot to strap it down or just decided to dump it.

Does anybody know where the list of motorcycle manufacturers accepted by the State Of Ct is? I scoured DMV website and can't find it.

Yea, one day I might get another XR650L. I did like that bike a lot. It makes a good dualsport. I also know a lot about the bike and I know I could do a good job fixing it to suit my needs. One day maybe.

I came across this album of interesting motorcycle pictures. A little something for everyone. There's probably a more appropriate place to post this, but here ya go..
