Thanks! That is my other toy....a 1974 Steyr-Puch Pinzgaur 710M. Awesome off-road and air-cooled like my Ural.

Rode to work this morning, roads were bare and the sun was starting to come out.

90 minutes later, it was a mini-blizzard and I dashed out of the office to get the bike home.

Roads were rather slippery on just two wheels. A couple of pucker moments.

Good news is, it should be all buttoned up by end of next week!

Yep, the snow pack up north, and around here, is big...gonna be some fun water crossing this spring

Sadly it wont be anytime soon by the looks of the forecast

But it gives a procrastinator like me more time to get his bikes ready
