    A bit of a hike from my place so I'll be giving it a pass this year. Perhaps the next time its somewhere central - like Oregon or California?

    I did go to Billings in 2015 but since I moved west a few years ago, I hate riding the flat and straight stuff.

    Ah, it's warming up here in a couple of days. And the snowmobile suits will be going on sale, soon....

    I wonder how much the owner paid for that paint job.

    Apparently the original owner of the K1200 had the bike sprayed as it looks now...….the fellow I purchased it from (owner #2 ) had the hack sprayed to match...…...Iv'e got the receipts, and it's much more than I would have cared to spend, but the shop that shot it did stand up work with the match

    I think if I lived in your neck of the woodz, I'd feel the same way, but with that being said, isn't coming out east for a few pints worth the ride?

    So, don't shoot the messenger, but yesterday the continental US high temperature was reported from Rio Grand Village in Big Bend National Park, just down the road from our house. Having just written this I am sure we will next be nailed by cold like we had a few year ago when it didn't get over 8F for 3 days and everybody I knew had frozen pipes and 1/2 and 3/4 inch plumbing fittings could not be found within 400 miles of here due to everybody needing some. Carry on.

    For those that live in colder areas and run the risk of having pipes freeze to the point of splitting or the joint pushing apart, I can recommend having some SharkBite fittings around- https://www.sharkbite.com
    If you need major work, you can rent a Pro-Press at plumbing supply stores- https://www.viega.us/en/products/innovations/tools.html
    If you have a chance- or need to do plumbing work, both of these solutions will have you smiling as it is so easy and safe (no exposed flame).

    89. Wow. And you're in for more if it; your pipes are safe.

    We've had the longest cold snap since '98, but were coming out of it now; a nice little pre spring present.

    Hard to argue with your logic.

    If I had never been to Tennessee (and all the other eastern states) I would definitely give it some serious consideration.
