Those were the wilderness years for me. It's all more betterer now.

Bloody Lonerockz moved to California.

He has a new bike.

He rides in January.

Like this.



Bastard.

But, the good weather cometh, slowly and surely. Oh yes.
I have major cabin fever.

Having a good shed helps with that.

For now, best you work on "Bribe her into bed" day.

Although I have to admit, a nice motorcycle ride would work wonders right now.

A nice one mind, not one of the bullshit "look at us we ride all winter" ride in the slush and shit and cold and salt all over the bike rides.

A ride to the Delta Diner. Oh yes. Looking forward to that!

But busy as ever... The new bike is a real distraction. I should be planning on riding the Iron Butt Rally on my trusty Versys... but instead I keep having to ride the Triumph around... you know so it doesn't collect dust. But I did have to put the Electric grips on... was in the low 50's this weekend... so it was a might chilly

Hope all is well!

Your bike is very warm and cozy. So there's that anyway.

Ax-Man report. CHIPs helmets $14.95. Actually they are LA Sheriff not CHIP, but close enough that you could mess with Lonerockz.

Winter riding is keeping the "V" in adventure riding. Without the Venture, we all would just be reading Ads. I ride for the thrill, I can careless what cagers/polishers think. Just saying!!!!!

Spring fever parts ordering has commenced!

I think the Fazer will appreciate new fork springs and a new front tire. Now, to go take it apart before the weather turns to shit again...

I see they come with a free (used) geologist. Man, the market has really tanked on those guys.

Enthrall us with your winter riding escapades. Where have you been doing all this fine riding? Been to any far away places?

Although you are a bloody nuisance, you can still bring that up to my place if you want. Bring pies as well though. And bundt cakes.

I appreciate that. EMP hasn't confirmed shipment date for the springs yet, but I'll ping you when I have everything in order.

I also forgot to order fork seals so I should probably do that to.
