Looking forwards to Spring
« on: February 21, 2015, 06:06:57 PM »
Already planning for the ride up to MD for the April MD/DC Camp out! Now that we have broken this record freeze, the ice pack is starting to melt and I may be able to ride again soon! Also, this is the time of year that camping gear is put on sale. Great time for a new tent. Walmart.com has a lot of their tents at 60% off and free shipping. Come onnnnnnn April!  ;-T

yeah, I might be addicted to brake fluid. But I can stop any time I want.

Funny you should mention spring today, in three months it is the summer solstice. After that the days will get shorter! :-\

Right. In a couple months we'll be hearing how it's way too hot in Houston.  Poop or get off the Guzzi!

This is one case where the response "What planet are YOU living on?" would have been perfectly appropriate and not just sarcastic!   ;-T

 A state of confusion ;D all winter I've been cleaning my shop, fixing tools, rearranging stuff. Tomorrow a new 30 by 45 Cleary building is going up in the back lot. 15 foot sidewalls. Ill be able to get all my stuff inside as well as take some storage pressure off the shop. I sure appreciate you guys sharing some of the magnificent projects you have been doing, I usually have something going on and I've gone nuts not doing that Im ready for some spring!

Got the bike back together after some more mods.  Rode it twice last week.  Today....more snow  :(

I do love the new Tomaselli throttle  :)

Nice to hear you guys busy! My next project is to finish up work on my old Ural and then pull a jug on my '73 Eldo and see if it can be run as-is. Its always something!
