Watch out for PMS!!!

Unfortunately, I think I'm coming down with the early onset symptoms of this condition...

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

The best way to combat this syndrome is to put your parked motorcycle up on blocks or on a lift and strip it down to bare bones and get some work done on it. If it doesn't need any work, consider it "familiarization." If it's unrideable anyway because it's taken apart, the symptoms are much less severe than they would be were it whole and sitting there waiting to ride.

Ice studs...



Hell, my season is just starting. Summer here is brutal, hot and humid. You can always put on more gear, when it's hot not so much. I've tried the hydration packs and pouring water all over my mesh jacket for a few minutes of comfort. I'm not in it for that. I garage the bike in the summer and do what you do in the winter.

Gray-haired riders donít get that way from pure luck.

Don't let a little white (frozen) sun-light stop you.

Wow! I was thinking more along the lines of going to Maui and riding Mendo's bikes... Still think I would rather go that route! Lol!

I give this guy credit though, that's extreme riding!

Edit: Actually, that's beyond extreme... I'm not even sure if they have a word for that kind of riding... -30, dark, and ice with a frozen cornea. Brrrrrrr!
