Oh yeah, my shifter after the "nap"....ummmm...see pic...

This is not what I thought Touratech meant by "folding" shift lever

Til then, you all suck. I'm ready to punch santa in the throat. (yea, I'm in retail).

One thing that did make me feel a tad better is deciding to go to the ICE ralley in State Collage, Febuary. Sounded like a really stupid thing to do, so I'm in.

Hope this thread petters off, so we can get back to the regular BS on PA ToR.
Mark, Count me in on this. I think it will be fun. Are you going for the ADV thing? Or the other festivities that weekend in State College? This might inspure me to put tires on the RatMax. I wonder if I can get street knobbies for my VMax. I will start studding the tires now.

I'm going for the ADV ICE gathering. I'm a Mansfield U alum. The PSU partys tend to get a bit over the top. But a bunch of liquered up ADVers sounds like fun.

I'm not as hard core as some (you), so I probably will be hauling the bike down in the van, do a little riding there. I can get at least 4 bikes in my van (Sprinter), if you want to toss the Big Wheel, err TW in, and have some fun. Maybe DirtyM and a few other NE inmates will need a shuttle.

Hope you and the family feel better soon.

My Sons Birthday is Feb 19th. So I will be blowing off the first day. Come the next morning weather permiting. If you have a free spot. Maybe I will come back with you and I will take the mighty tw. If its nice, I will take the RatMax and plan the round trip. It all depends on time , space and weather...... I need a the TARDIS.

It's 11 degrees now. But at least it's windy. Finally getting ready to start some work on the bikes.
At the bike shop ordering some parts. Which one of you inmates knows Dave Jennings? He told me about a nut that has rode all over the country, and then some! Said this guy knows me from some discussion group. That you DurtyM?

WooHoo!!!!
After a few days of playing, I finally got my heated vest working. THe controller was spent. I went to order one online and saw how simple it was and decided to get the parts from radio shack and make it myself. Heat again!!!! It has not worked since the 90's. Time to ride again if I ever get my keys back from the wife......
