Nice Pictures!
I really like that have U-Turn signs so you don't drive off into the Grand Canyon!

You only need to take a stiff piece of wire taped to the swingarm and slowly rotate the tire by hand looking at the gap from wire to rim. (that's risky running it under power so easy to get hurt.)

.....are you sure it's the rim and not just a bad tire?

I don't mind taking a few minutes to post some memories of 2013.

We started out with a hell of a storm. Before it was done, I think we had about 2 to 3 feet. It was crazy.



Of course, I took a nasty digger on the ice. I'm happy that the surgery went well and I healed up in time to enjoy the riding season.


The April big bike Camp-n-Ride was a huge success. I think a repeat is in order. The next few are from that event.








This one was for a Tag-o-Rama thread, I thought it came out well.


Next up was my double header trip, the RedNEK Rendezvous and the Roaming Rally.

This is WAP and I heading out. The rain only got harder for the next few hours.


Radar Base




Al and I were just cruising around the NEK for the next couple.




We then make a run for the border and the start of the Roaming Rally. The next series was taken on that trip.

Making our way North through Montreal.


Foxy friend from Mont Trembault


Registration.


Getting the fire started.


Matt hating his tires..


No good lines


We made it through Canada and I was off to the Caribbean. This was overlooking Meagan's Bay.


Saw a race at Watkins Glen



Bet on some horses at Saratoga Downs.


Went to Lake George


I needed a new truck, the old one rusted out. Two bikes fit, check.


Here's a couple from the Halloween Camp-n-Ride.




I also got in a good bit of fishing this year from the dirt bike. I caught a LOT of fish. All but two were set free.








And this one was taken last weekend.



It's been a great year, and you all have been a big part of it. I hope you have a wheelie great Christmas, and I look forward to whatever adventures are in store for us this coming year.

Good post, Rob. Are you sure you're allowed that much fun in only one year?
Merry Christmas, Bro!

Thanks. I had to beg borrow and steal a little to make it all happen.

BONUS. I won a $20 bet on a horse at Saratoga to win so I broke even for the day. It was my first time, but I plan to return. Its a fun afternoon.

Boy that shoulder was something. Looks like hog rings used for auto upholstery.

Merry Christmas guys.

after the good news that the deed has been filed (with Dougie, my barracuda agent!)


keys keys keys & cheap cava ('cos we don't have a dime left!)


Absolutely the worst closing ever but we have a garage! I've already swept/cleaned it out, changed the locks, and cheesebot patched up the one missing window. Window treatments [to hide contents] tomorrow (Jesus wouldn't mind; he's a carpenter's son after all--gotta work when it's available), then the moving of the bikes!

I'm so thankful that we've been able to get a workshop that happens to have a house attached.
