Definitely, Paden RD was real slick. Had to use 2wd in some of the snow.

I have almost no 2 wheel dual-sport experience, so I respect the hell out of you guys that ride full bore on roads that make me fish-tail!! There were times on the slick Trans-Lab that I would have gone down on 2-wheels.

Definitely!

Same to you. If you head out for a couple hours and want some company, I am near Munster and unless I am oncall, I am always ready to go.

While I am thinking about this....I need to swap some tires soon...in case some of you guys weren't aware, Richmond Motorsports will change tires even if you do not buy the rubber from them, (a policy I never understood), for $20, if the wheel is off the bike.

Tomorrow I may see if I can actually get my second day of bike commuting in March...
-2c in the morning, but 5c during the day. I dont think i'll venture out on any dirt roads around here yet. Still too icy and/or snow covered.

Dirt roads, like the one I live on are snow and ice free. A bit "squishy" in spots from the ground thawing but doable

Another week of decent temps and the forecasted rain laster in the week should make a big difference...hopefully enough to melt the ice on my lane way

Went to see the Toronto Supercross races last night. Makes for a great night away with the boys. Couple of beers, loud bikes, bullshit stories, toxic fumes, and supercross girls.

If anyone wants to take the edge off those cold mornings on the bike, we have a couple of electric vests for sale in the Flea Market.

One Aerostich mens XL and a BMW womans size medium.

If I could just find that damn picture
I wonder what pic you're speaking about ?

2 or 3 working days and the bathroom (yes, the one I'm completly rebuilding for month!) should be done... I'll then be able to prepare my bike for a new season!
