And I take absolutely no blame whatsoever! It just takes me a little longer than most to realize that there is a layer of ice sitting under those 2" of snow. Duhhh.... Y'all remember that next time. I do try to stop and warn when I think something is not rideable or dangerous. I guess the 950 just powered through the snow a little better and easier than the Pig. (Hint, hint, hint Harpoon )

Damn I didn't realize that the Poonie's GS was so precariouisly perched on the side of that cliff. By the time I turned around you already had the bike upright. Close call for sure.

Heal quickly Poonie.

I figured it out Poonie- You were just trying to take a short cut to get in front of me.

so what's the poop? can i take the FZ1 on these Roads or are we gonna have roads like Peter's mill on this one? is it all gravel roads? it's such a pain to take the Motard wheels off the DRZ and put the DP wheels on.

Your DRZ with motard wheels should be just dandy.

I think 9AM DST for the No. VA crowd - Starbucks Pike 7 Plaza on Rt. 7, was the consensus, unless I missed a separate memo.

I'm still going to go for it, unless it's raining cats and dogs - even then, might still go to test my waterproof suit and boots. Amazing how in a matter of 2 days the forecast went from sunny and 60s to 60% chance of rain, cloudy, windy, and high of 50 max. At least here in Tysons...

I'm still picking the dust out of my teeth. I'll bet it'll be pretty soupy tomorrow.

OK - with all the rain I've bagged the harescramble for Sunday. I will watch weather and may see you guys at Keith's Place with the KTM.

What time are you guys meeting at Keith's??? And don't give me any of this if you do or don't set your clocks... what time Sunday?
