while some of us have road bikes for pavement, the red color will put you far in the lead....we'll just make some meeting places...
although I do plan on having my red '77 R100s on the road this coming season with valve job and new rod brgs so it will be much faster....

wicked wahm today

All that sun that fine young man from overta Woolwich was hoping for yesterday? I think I got his AND mine today. Double dose of rays, no doubt.
50 miles of banging around Happy Valley, NH was very nice after about 10 weeks of no riding due to knee surgery and oh yeah, winter.

Hang in there. The days are getting longer.

You were right.

First track day is in May. Hope to some of you there.
I'm curious if you'll still be able to hear the 250's horn with that new pipe.

The owner and his son came down into the shop today to find out what the hell we did to make the whole place rumble. I think they were expecting to find something awful, but it wasn't us.

Didn't ride overta Bear Peak and didn't ski today. Probably skiing Bear Peak and Attitash on Sunday. Just riding today. It is fun to ride to a ski area while people are skiing. More fun to ride to one, ski, and ride home. I love Attitash too. My wife worked there for years. We all had season's passes. Woohoo! We skied a LOT of days at A & BP. Speaking of Attitash...

For any Guard, Reserve, Active, Retired, and all veterans of the US military, FREE LIFT TICKETS at Attitash, Bear Peak and Wildcat on January 26 and 27. Get out there and ski if you're a vet. They'd like to thank you and you should take 'em up on it if'n you're inclined. You listenin' EC? Go take a few runs on Wildcat!

I'm a Loooong ways from Booth Bay, but I was sitting at the table having a late sandwhich and I had one of those "what was that ?" moments. The time would have been right.... Hmmmm.

Did get a chance to get out and ride today too. Only running errands but it sure is a whole lot more fun on the bike than in the truck . Days like today are truly a gift, whether you ride or not. What a great afternoon! Almost hit 50 here at the house . Not bad for January in NH.

Glad you had a good gathering. One of these days I may ride up for that . . . would like to meet some of you guys. It's the two hour ride home that gets me - I hate riding (or driving) at night.

Good thing you stuck it out, the guy you're working for is a dick I hear.

I doubt you would have noticed the earthquake with all the blasting going on.
