    went with the 3L soda bottle idea yesterday... was all of 4F when i left the house at bout 3pm... wind gusts between 25-30mph... made the 5 mile trip over to home depot for a job interview, and could still feel my fingers when i got there!
    was supposed to take a 26m road trip (one way) today, but when it was still only 0F at noon, i decided i'd wait till tomorrow when it's supposed to be at least in the 20's... (snow showers)

    Best of luck with the interview!! I'm starting my 8th year wearing the apron. My Sis has been with 'em 23 years. Lots of opportunity there if you look in the right places.

    I'm only a bit late with this but all I use is the soldering iron. Just run it up and down the sleeve and it shrinks....

    so today went a lil bit differently than expected... only put half the miles on due to water in my magneto case and ran out of fuel... and as low as gas prices are getting, i really didn't see me getting all the way home on the $.90 i had in my pocket... so called for a ride for the remainder...
    was snowing pretty good when i left this morning so i stopped road side and got a pic of what exactly i was riding in...

    for those of you who asked, you can sort of see the 3L bottle wind guards...
    SOOOOO glad i put them on, even if they are just temps...

    haha, for that matter, could get some 24" rims and tack 1" angle bar chunks to it for cleats and that would put it back up to the 26... lmfao

    yeah, but you could cut it down a certain amount by mounting them right up against each other... still be quite the buzz but not like riding on rail road ties lol
