COLD ... COLD Day in North Texas

Hope everyone is safe and warm today in the North Texas area. Ice and sleet deposited over the area making it rather touchy driving today.

On a more positive note, I am finally back riding again. I know...I know I'm not back on another BMW or Triumph at this time, but I could not pass up the deal on the bike.

See pics below:

Re: COLD ... COLD Day in North Texas

Really happy for you Bruce! Congrats on the Wing....very nice looking machine.

Now... come to Lonestar's open house on the 14th so we can see it up close. I see many pie runs coming up this spring.

Re: COLD ... COLD Day in North Texas

Good to see you back around, Bruce!

Congrats on the new mount. If we can let Keith and Gina hang out with us on their potato-potato-potato bike, I suppose a Wing can be acceptable, too.

Uh do not in ANY way confuse this bike with a "Zebra" like I did. Rick somehow didn't take that too well. I mean it is black and white - I think of Zebra, not Tiger. I'm a princess . . . it can be whatever I want it to be!
