Did they move up from CA?
It's CA, they are dumb fucks from the get go, Nice, but so very fucking dumb. When it rains they think they will melt. Not much else to say about the southwest....

If you want to trade some of that work for a plane ticket instead of parts you can take mine out, it sits most of the time while I am visiting these poor weather parts of the country for work and it doesn't like sitting.

It likes to run every day and gives nothing but problems after sitting so all I ask is it comes back the same.

Snapped a pic or 2

My brothers truck



This used to be a fireplace and a bunch of benches



And a trail my younger brothers made from the driveway to shortcut to school



Never seems to stop snowing, we should get a tractor..

You guys must have snowmobiles right? I used to have one but we dont seem to get enough constant snow to make it worthwhile.

It's too cold and icy in Michigan to ride this time of year. You have to work on your bike until it gets warm enough in the Spring to start all over again

I meet a small group of buds for breakfast every sunday morning,We call it "Lincoln Square-ride if you dare" and it is year round.Now that I'm 60+ I have set limits,if it is below 20 F or the roads are completely snow covered I'll take the 4wd truck or a snowmobile. otherwise I'm on one of my Triumphs or Nortons.

Think we must have about the same amount then, and it sucks

Atleast now that no one of these babys are working:




Sorry for the OT pics

Shure I'm riding in Winter. And it is fun.
Depending on where I go I use this one as an all day transporter:



...this one for drifting on ice:


...or this one for bigger tours like Tauerntreffen in the Austrian Alps:

WAY TO GO!
Britain is paralysed (almost) by the 4-8" snow we've had over the last week. OK the airports and trains are worst hit; ppl are still driving..
I hope to be out on the Matchy boxing day - that's an "if you dare" tradition ride
