Just need to hook up the brake and run a cord for my new/ used heated gear and the hack will be ready.

I have a feeling that there will be a lot of tweaking to do after the test ride but, there will be no stopping me now. I will ride another season.....

I just had to go out and uncover my furnace chimney, it is only 2' high and got buried in the snow on the roof. I think this is the biggest single snow event I have ever seen...

Bloody mary
