Sunny with a slight breeze here, and pretty cool.


Doc, there must have been a ton of those 'secret rides' commencing today, not a peep in here!



I started cleaning up the backyard for the garden this year, did a little welding project, ran a few errands on the bike ( brrrr)

Now im enjoying a cheap beer, and starting to think about whats for dinner.

PF doesn't have the free weights I use. No squat racks or anything. Dumbells only go to 80 lbs. Kind of lame. It is cheap though, my company has a membership at one in Mobile, AL I use when over there.

I might bite the bullet and join Worlds. I don't like them though. My membership was bought out by Fit 4 Less, and doesn't expire till late July so I will be there till them. Got a nice route that is 8.5 miles to get there. Just glad the super cold weahter is over, I could barely make it 6.5 miles to Power House in that single digit wind chill crap.

No secret ride done here. It was too cold for an old sissy like me.

I finally got a day off from homework and got some shop time in!

I finally got the forks rebuilt on the Versys, that was over a month in the making. Also got the TKC80 front tire mounted. Now I just need another free day and some sunshine so I can go test the tire and forks out!

Looks purdy!

Nice mattmuss.

I like that you have dual brake discs , so it wont pull to one side.

Thumb time

The gals went to Sam's grocery shopping today, so I got to spend the day in the garage.

A bit chilly, but I did get the rear-sets done for the R5. Now all it has to do is get warm enough for paint to dry, and I will paint them and the linkages. It will be good to have it ride-able again.

It wasn't much of a job, but getting time to do it was rough.
