    Sorry guys, it's all my fault!

    Last week Saturday I took my final ride of the season. Maybe an hour. Not too far from home base. Stopped to add the Stabil, and topped off the tank. Pulled into the garage did the whole battery, tires, and mothballs thing. Threw the cover over it gave it kiss, and walked away with a tear in my eye.

    The next day it started snowing and has not stopped since.

    sorry

    23 years of snowplowing and weather forecast say no way for me. The roads will be treacherous. I have never got in the parade anyhow. Prefer to watch the Harley riders act it out.
    if by some miracle I will be at the Shell station @ 6am, Larry.

    Bik!

    How's the weather out in your new West Coast environs? Have you been able to do and California riding (and lane splitting?)

    Just riding

    Brian,

    I rode through some winding roads on rolling hills. Too afraid to do lane splitting yet. I am never in a hurry, so I've got some patience, but then if I get anxious, I may use the lane splitting law to bypass cars.

    I've got to hook up with NoCal guys for some real riding for next year.

    Bik -

    Sounds like you've landed in paradise. Especially since we're facing still another winter storm.

    (Tom Skilling the weatherman is delighted, isobars all over the place.)

    Hopefully you got out today and rode. I should have done a "shout out" to see if anyone else was available. I only rode for about 1 hour but it was one hour longer than the last month of riding time.
