That's been a while. I'm sure you will get right back into it or at least have fun trying.

good job on the TT. I'm curious on how much better the forward shocks work?

Thanks!! Not real sure how it will handle. Stock rear suspension and Yamaha Radian 600 forks. If it storms on Saturday like the forecast shows, then it will be race tested on the 20th

Hope you aren't riding back. The pass could be "interesting". Safe travels.

Nanc and I took the hack out for a short drive this morning. 40 deg. and windy. The coffee and tea at Starbucks helped a lot. Once it hits 50+ deg. I hope to be out much more often with the girls exploring the area a bit more.

Just got back and yeah, snow. Started in wallace, wet roads to the top, crossed into montana, 3+ inches of compact snow on the road. Snowed almost all the way to Missoula but roads were just wet once we got to the bottom of the pass. Oh, and did I mention the wind? How can you have a
head wind going both ways? Anyhow, we made it home, total run, 480 miles in 10 hours.
Here it is.
