computer told me to write something

I got a note when I got on this site that I need to write something or engage in conversation.

There 2 ft of snow on the ground, going up to the cabin Sat. roads were hard pack snow. Thought I should wait to ride the bike. Did get to charge the battery on the CLC. I guess you can said I rode my winter bike (snowmoble) and it was great fun.

I am waiting for Apr. so I can ride, I hate ice when riding the bike.

Weather

Yesterday the weather in Utah was 55 and sunny and all I could do is look out my window at work and watch the bikes go by. This weekend is busy with my girls basketball tournaments so will have to wait another week. I can smell spring as well as the pile of paper on my desk that needs my attention.
Signed frustrated and anxious.

Post a Note

Temp should be around Zero. No riding but I am getting my gs adventure ready to go to Alaska this June. Made headlight covers, Oil cooler guard. Modified lower seat. Bought tankbag and rear rack bag. Made light bar and installed lights. Need to mount gps and satelite radio. If I cant't ride I might as well keep busy. Pete

crazy no, normal yes

You all need to understand that in Minnesota we all hear voices in our head this time of year. Mine just happens to ask "isn't it time to go riding yet?"

It's not where we go. It's that we go.

The information from this site and its members has proven to be invaluable again.

Cool 77 degrees in OK

We are going to switch over from the heated vests to summer gear as it is getting hot here. May be freezing by the weekend because the weather changes that fast.

Mid 60's in Middle Tennessee today. Rode to work and took the longer way home. The Bradford pear trees are close to budding out. Spring is almost here.
Life is good.
There........I wrote something.

Hi Pete, you are going to alaska nice!! I have a friend in Maine that is planing a trip to Alaska in June I think. She works in my office, is these with your group? I am going to Dallas Texas next month in my LT from Maine, not as long trip as to Alaska but is 2000 miles one way.
