We do what we can
ya know I can't even wash my bike, it's too darn cold out <grin> (and that is MY story!)

I'd move in with Jinks for the winter but i know I would get stuck in his sunroom then it would rain <grin>

I was 6 in '67 ya old fart!

it's actually much warmer this am, mid 30's but it's very windy and looks like it's about to pour

if the sun would just come out and the rain clouds leave, I would get out for a ride today.

Seven inches of the white stuff must be Dave's fault also.

Cold: "The Bright Side"- ya gets to try out all that new heated gear you paid a fortune for at the rally. I'm layering mine on here in a couple of hours and heading for Atlanta, so we'll see if it's any good.

Steve,

The traffic in Snelville was like ants on a meat skin with all the shoppers out. Slow economy?,,,I don't think so! Mel and I rode to Mom's house to pick up her old car to have Mel sell it in Tennessee, and I thought I was going to lose my mind with all the stop and go. I thought about giving you a call, but it was all we could to take care of the business at hand. Just got back and you're right...great riding both days. This thing gets better every time I get on it.

Sorry you had a tough time Al. I know all the back roads and can stay out of all that stop and go stuff on the major 4 lane streets. Plus alot of them have some twisties, but then there is the Snellville PD and you never know where they're going to show up. So far the two of the boys are the only ones that have found them.

On His Ride,
Steve
