Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Played with the springer forks. Think I had the 4 lower bolts to tight and couldn't bounce back. Loosened em up to uncomfortable but rode for hrs and hrs today. Have the front proped up now letting the wheel drop and put reverse pressure on the springs with cap nuts loose. Tried prying it down, but no go so far. Well, didn't want to force it and am out'a steam my self.

Delivered ketchup with her. Aye, was a journey froth with great danger. But had to get the ketchup threw to them kids! (Or in the great words of Capt. Foss; "*Forget* the kids, lets drink the serum") Pic below is to commemorate the courageous voyage. Really cool part of ridding around Hartford after that much snow, (about a foot) was the right lanes were only half plowed. So was half a lane. No cars behind me. Was like a city wide motorized bicycle lane! Uber cool!!!

In the bottom right of that pic is a tiny lil radio Carol got me for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Festivus. Radio playing "If I had a million dollars" Kept thinking, I wouldn't change a thing. I got every thing I need and almost every thing I want.

Then later that day saw a woman being led out of her apartment handcuffed and DCYS walking her children out in front of her and the cops.

But 5 or 6 hr ride of beeps, waves, thumbs up's.

I ride in the rain and snow a lot and I gotta say one of the problems isn't the snow, it's my freakin' boots. They're just hiking boots, not combats or anything but still - they're huge & clunky and the last thing in the world ya want when riding in such conditions & at these speeds is ANYTHING hampering your dexterity...

So if yer thinkin' some kinda plastic shield or somethin' - I'd hafta say don't, it'll mess ya up sooner or later. There's a buncha "low tech" options, like galoshes & rain pants w/a gather at the cuff or even "old school" with the good ol' bread bags over your socks...

My "solution" is pretty simple, if it's nasty death weather out - I grab a change of socks & shoes and put 'em in my pack

Wally-Mart always has rain boots that go up over the calf, almost to the knee. More durable than trash bags for sure.

After 4 years in the military and 6 more on the job if you spend the money for good boots it makes all the difference also good thick socks feels just like sneakers to me
