Ammo cases on your F800? No way! But Zebra skin? Now that's a good choice!

These are the rules by which we live in this de facto CenTex riding community. If you start to understand them, you should think about moving.

Jeez. I have no idea how that happened. Must be that illiteracy side effect of the hypothermia treatment they warned me about.

In other news, checking the temperature at home. If not too frigid, I am heading north again Friday. Gonna get up north Friday before dark/right at dark. Plan on Saturday and Sunday is to "perfect" the far northern route. Let's say above I-20. Ambitious but maybe. Depending on when I can leave, may try to run a little on the way up but probably just slab it on FM and SH's.

It was a balmy 27 degrees F this morning and I had to run the heated grips on low. Love these things.

It is really strange the tips haven't come back. Probably diabetic related along with being really cold for a long time. Whatever it is, this shit needs to end.

You gotta keep circulation in the tip. It won't work right otherwise.

Well I think I might be to blame for the weather. Got in from Anchorage Sat. May have brought some cold with me. So i am a bikeless ADVer in Granbury for two weeks. Jelous of your winter riding. Looking forward to learning where all the local dirt is when I retire here. Lastly i now have to talk parents into a night at loco coyote.

Well, that was a little off-color. But I see the point.
