Chance to get a pic on here of my 47UL!

Awaiting new bars, something lower, not so wild with my taller risers!

I think the polar vortex is not where it should be and it's split in half from what i hear.... nice weather would be nice. What kind of bars did you get?

Even here in Southern California it has been raining and it's cold. Get some pullbacks. Pullback bars are cool.

These tall buckhorns just went on my chopper for a try and thinking about a tall sissybar for the spring.

It was 65 and sunshine here yesterday. I wanted to take my Sporty for a ride, but I was working on my Shovel.
We are dry dry dry here, we need moisture badly.
T-shirt westher again today, but we might have a blizzard tomorrow, in Texas, you can never tell.

-7C here today...had a friends bike out for a very short test drive; just about froze my balls off. We're just entering the dead of winter, spring is a long, long way away. I agree with VonWegener, pullbacks would look cool on it.

Clammy and sopping, with occasional high winds. My bike is up the street and around the corner, out of sight and prettynear out of mind. A buddy's letting me leave it in his capacious garage. The possible fly in that oinkment is that he's very old and getting vaguer by the day. Doesn't consistently remember who I am. I don't think he is either materially or psychologically equipped to shoot me if he finds me in there, but life is full of surprises.

Rhys, I like the new paint. Looks good man. Its currently 23 degrees Fahrenheit and snowing here in Montucky. Weve got up to 10 inches coming tonight so no riding for a bit for me. Good thing cause my top end disappeared into a black hole in Pennsylvania after I tore down my motor for a top end nipple leak. Once I get it back tho, its on. If the roads are clear im riding.

Here in KL we're just entering the hot, dry season - as opposed to the hot, wet season. Several glorious months of riding without too much risk of getting caught out in a storm. The rain may be warm, but it's still fuckin' wet!

Cold weather? I've a vague memory of it back in Europe. Been there, done that, and will never risk it again.

They're calling for 24" of snow in upstate New York this weekend. I guess this will stay in the barn.

Ah, Today I would take rain, -17C in Edmonton, Alberta and snowing. I am not too sympathetic with your situation.

Winter does give me an opportunity to make changes and repair for the upcoming riding season and then I make everyday count. We do have nice stretches of open highway and scenery, I would imagine it's a little crowded in KL.

50 Panhead, maybe you could ship the bike to me for the winter, and I could keep her limbered up and warm and happy.
She would sleep next to my 46 Indian, maybe they would produce a Pandian?

It's freezing here at the moment, luckily I'm not tempted out to ride, one I have no bars currently, two, I'm piecing together a 2 into 1 header pipes for the bike. I feel for you guys with the snow.. that's never ever fun!

As for bars, gone for some Z bars, 10" base so going to cut them down and tig them to suit my sugar bear front end! down to 7" otherwise it'll look too wide!
