Guilty ????

Have you ever felt quilty about having to let your motorcycle just sit in the garage?

My wee-Strom has been bugging me for the past couple months. I parked it in the shed behind the lawn mowers, figuring the KLR would would/could keep me entertained throughout the winter months. The KLR can do all I ask of it without a doubt, but blackie (the wee) has bothered me. Blackie just sitting there in the shed getting almost no attention, (I do start him about every two weeks) has made me feel quilty.
I mean what is the reason for having multiple bikes if one has to sit in the shed all the time? I can understand the 1972 Kawasaki 100 sitting, because it is a work in progress, and the second A18 just sitting there on the operating table awaiting on the surgeon to finish the disassembly. But Blackie just sitting there waiting on spring is just too much for me to handle.
Now if the weather wasn't cooperating I might could deal with it, but the weather has been too nice to us here in SE Kentucky for me to allow Blackie to be neglected. Today I will make a path out of the shed so that Blackie can get outside to play.
Tomorrow Blackie will get to run the roads once again. The temps are going to be in the 60's, my older brother is comming to town, (he sold his hardley when he moved to FL) and I am planning on myself and my two brothers taking a late December ride through the Kentuck Mountains.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

I agree Joe. That's horrible. You should send the wee to Nebraska. I'll make sure it gets more regular exercise! :c00201 :h0030

I can do that, "if the price is right"! :lol:

Everything I have is for sale "if the price is right", except my wife, but I do lease her out to the hospital fourty hours a week.

Thank you,

I now feel very justified that when I decided I "wanted" a second bike that I got something at the extream other end of the motorcycle spectrum from the KLR, basically because I feared just what you are describing. Hope "blacky" gets a good cruise out of you today and you two have a chance to mend hurt feelings. :lol:

At least you have a choice, I have to listen to both of mine whine when I walk through the garage. To much snow here to get either of them out . But, by the end of feb, they will both be out.

The shortest distance between two points is a damn shame.......

I rode Broke Back mountain, and my a$$ is killing me.....
