Not too bad here. Bridges are still a little slick but the morning commute to the fire station was pretty uneventful on the little Ascot.
Things are melting pretty good too as the ice is falling off the cars now.

Make sure you post up some pictures for those of us that are stuck at work. (already been a busy morning )

Thomas,

This is like spring weather for you right?? WHat brings you to NC?
If you were a little closer I would say stop by and visit our little FD.

I am caging it for sure. There is still a good coating of ice round here. I was hoping it would have melted by now.

I am also. Just back from a hike around the "mountain" with son and dogs. I could do the bike in a hour I think. One bridge still totally covered, our 1/2 mile rd still mostly ice covered, our short drive completely covered and the 1 mile or so to a main road is clearing but not to the point of having a clear tire track area. Riding down would be by boring 15 501. The back roads way is a favorite ride of mine. Had hoped to be riding that back home. Oh well. See you soon.

NCS

Y'all got room for a couple more? My wife has come down with a touch of Cabin Fever so I figured I'd better get her out of the house for a bit...

I feel like I was kicking a Triumph, but it was indeed the Ural. Boris is one pissed off Siberian and he won't start. Looks like I'm caging it. :(

Scratch. I'm out. ()()@##@ car doesn't want to start at the gas station, so I'm going to head home. (And i'm still basically in Raleigh, so 40 minutes away)

crappy weather, and other annoying stuff.

Hope the bbq is good.

Hey Thomas,

Hit me up before you leave for NY. I see in your profile you have an 83' CB650SC. If you want it, I have a UNI filter for it you can have.

Here are some pics I took at the dinner. We had a great turnout considering the weather, some even rode in the cold, One from New York! And One from SC, but we wont mention him




Even an Eggy appearance!!

And finally a couple of the few bikes that were there.

So where is this white stuff you were all whining about?
