Seems like we're all in the same big boat with this nationwide cold spell. I plan to get out tomorrow (Sat) when the weather improves with *maybe* some sun and *maybe* high temps above 30.

Skinny tires rule.

Am sitting in the shop considering possibly thinking about maybe later working on a MB.

As soon as I stop shaking from the cold......

Looks like I picked a bad week to stop drinking in the morning

I know your pain... 20's and 30's down here in central Texas... hard to get acclimated when your having 90 degree weather one week and then the next it's in the 20's & 30's...

Oh well, weather man predicted a few months ago that it looks like we're going back into a colder and wetter winter pattern in these part, may get back to the longer wetter winters I remember as a kid.


Stay warm and safe all...........

Not yet do I have to cover the orange tree and put a 25watt incandescent bulb on the drop light under the cover.

Storms are nice in the winter so I can go windsurfing, thermal winds are on hold till spring.

Was gonna ride out all the fuel from the carb for the 'winter slumbar'. Darn thing wouldn't start!! Well, the honeymoon is over for the CNS V3 carb. Soon, I'll order a RT carb from DAX.

It'll be good to not have to 'adjust' the carb after the bike warms up.......ride on!!

Snowed here yesterday, more snow than for the last 2 years. Some years we will get an early snow then that's all for the rest of the winter. Wonder what we're in for this year
