Cleva thinking there bro maybe you could take up xtreme poetry ...we actually appreciated the snow as the rain had stopped giving epic clear views of our (white) surroundings

That is seriously difficult riding!! I should know....I live with the crap 6 months of the year!! It just snowed here again yesterday!


Crossing Lac La Biche lake about week ago on 44 inches of ice.
Lowering your tire pressure to 15psi or so can really help traction!!

Regards....justjeff

Heya Jeff

It wasn't difficult, I had hands tied behind my back, blindfolded and 200 km winds ..part from that it was easy

Yes it was certainly testing for sure, two up house and contents through in a degree of difficulty as well but patience, time and road building/clearing busted its nuts

Riding in the snow sounds lotsa fun but gets tedious after a while so for 6 months a year my hat is off to you sir

I'm still thinking about it. Fuel for 3,000 km, tickets, food and stuff [1] ... and since I'm not rich anymore is a bit steep.

[1] Stuff is mainly beer

Heya Jaime

No contact yet, am gonna e him tomorrow, we are camping at the circuit although expensive it is an easy option close by.

Yeah it is a way to go, for us it is on the way which is coolio.

Beer, more than fuel $$$ plus siggies!

We have a slight shock issue so may see if Martyn has any space to bring the old one over from your place, will let ya know what happens.

On a good note, wine is CHEAP here ... got some aged oak Malbec in a glass which has a hole in it so I keep having to fill it , 5 liters for $8.00 US and n o i c e too.
