Hi,

Things have been good here as far as the weather goes but I haven't done much in the way of riding.

Yes, spring is on the way.

hobbled vs hitched

at least hobbled you still get a bit of freedom!!

Hello ladies! It's so great to be back in the saddle after a record 3-blizzard Winter in Maryland!

Yay Spring!

Talking New Bike

Picking up new bike saturday I'm buying Kim's (2uptouringtheworld) 09 BMW650 twin. Looking forward to all the adventures it will bring Meanwhile, the woods still have snow here. I went for a ride this week and had to turn back due to deep mud. It's just poured the last 3 days. Hopefully things will dry out soon.



Hopefully all this rain has melted the snow. This picture was taken eariler in the week.

Riding 37 yrs. The past 4 have been 100% car less cuz my baby needs it for school and I'm the best Mom a girl could ever have "her words not mine " and gave up my car.

I'm a Rounder and no I don't stop for snow but the guys I ride with do


Both of my girls will be out with me this yr and my baby is looking to race with me next yr.. It's really good to see more of us out on bike and maybe one day soon someone will think about making riding gear that really fits us and works well to..

I got some good riding on in the dirt today. Maybe my last time on my DRZ before she sells.

I even got a sunburn! Yeaaah summer! Ride on ladies, and be safe!




P.s. I had a good ride on some snow once....if I remember correctly it involved a face plant. Rock on!

Went out in the misty rain yesterday to try out the new bike. I rode for about an hour before I started getting cold. Hope things warm up and dry out a bit today.

I bought manuals, surfed the web, and asked a lot of questions. My hubby is a great source of info, but I don't let him do the work on my bikes. It's too much fun to do it myself.
I know how you feel. Feels great to do it yourself!!

Good deal... HokieDNA01 ...hajime

That's a great shot HokieDNA01


Just remember to read the Shop Manuel..
It's only Nuts and Bolts....A torque wrench is your friend ..
And I love Anti seize,the bolts that go in to aluminum as they like to corrode..
I just started using the Air wrench ooo I love that tool..
And an impact wrench is also a cool tool...

I have been wrenching on my own Valks for the last 5 yrs....
My mate guides me along , But I DO all the work...
It's nice to turn to someone and say is this right

Yes it's a great feeling working on them...
Plus you get to really look them over good...

I just rebuilt the Fuel tank Petcock and front brake Calipers on my black Valk..
I still have to down load the camera, plus I'm not fully finished...

I have a buddy of mine ,that he still can't get use to nail polish and grease

Here's a link to some of my Wrenching ...
Wrenching time


Also feel free to look at any of my photo album...

This was replacing a fuel line some time back

Thanks!

Well I TOTALLY got told off by this guy in JoMomma when I posted that pic cause I wasn't wearing latex gloves and how dangerous a dremel is with out latex gloves (I dont think it would prevent you from getting cut at all and worst cause can get caught in a rotory tool and REALLY hurt you) So he went off on me for a few pages, eventually calling me stupid and how he likes women with "common sense and 10 fingers"

Well since latex/nitrile gloves are the new safety necessity, I made sure my bike and myself was protected on my 500+ mile ride this past weekend. He is going to kill me

LOL... That's a great pix.....

Gee now back to the gloves... I would think that latex gloves or nitrile
would not be my choice when cutting metal.. That guy is an ass..Just tell him to blow....
You could get a burn from the glove melting with a piece of metal hitting it...
I would wear kidskin gloves...



Plus if it was in jomamma take it with a grain of salt... it's all BS in there...
That's the basement... No truth in it....
