Let it snow...NOT!

Well, here it comes again. It is beautiful though...I love how everything gets so quiet at night when it's snowing hard.

Doesn't look like we'll get much, if anything at all, here in SW NH . "More seasonal temps to follow" (warmer ). Not time to put the bike away, still plenty of riding to be had.

Looks like it's here to stay. I held off on putting my bikes away, but this weekend I'll be pushing them through the snow to their winter resting place (a shed).

My wife made it clear she wants the garage back.

I rode Thursday and I did another 60 miles (On the Hill) Friday. Got home before the rain. Now I do think it is over as well.

First plow of the season this morning. About 4-5 inches of light fluffy stuff.



Seems like I just put the plow away from last spring.

Got home on the bike from Colorado on Thanksgiving Day. Looks like I just made it. It's been snowing ever since.

Some snow squalls and flurries, but nothing more than a dusting here in Corinth. I'm hoping the snow holds off in earnest at least until I finish getting in next years wood.

The roads are still salt free... probably not too much longer though. The WR/X is ready for rides at least until the snow gets too deep in the yard and woods.

Nice tool Lost Viking. I got a camp near Saranac Lake and going by your photo I'd say its probably got snow too.

He said that was last winter, but I am waiting to get mine out as well. They are in the garage and tuned up and waiting.

I think I'm reading that correct as this years snow for the Can Am with plow. Sharp looking tool. I like Can-Am's bodywork on their 4 wheel line up. I could put one like that to good use for sure.

The Yammy sleds look good too. Seeing that Enticer brings back late 70's memories and my first trip up to Old Forge. We were running and Enticer 340 and an SS440. There was also a touring model in the 540 range we used to run down in MD.

What year is the Phazer and what's hiding under the hood of the Mimi Z?

The Phazer Long track is a 1993 mt other fazer is a 1995 both are the 485cc fan cooled sleds.
The Mini-Z and the Polaris I have are both Stock 120cc four stroke

The Enticer is a 1980 300 Twin

The winter toys will be ready to go, as soon as I get the Polaris clutch put back together.



The spare sled is ready to go.

6.5" here overnight & 3F this morning. A shot across the bow I guess.

Counting on the thaw next week, still have stuff to do.
