Looks like it is going to blow over pretty quickly. Snow should stop in the next hour or so...

That may be true, but the salt slop will be around until it rains again. I don't like stopping every 10 minutes to clean the visor so I can see. That stuff does not just wipe off that easily. I'm done on the roads until the next good rain. I'll be riding on the old RR beds like the one I took you on after Louie's until then.

Wife and I are Panera and on the way to the show. Hope to see some of you there. I guess 2:30 at RTW Dougs would be a good meeting place.

There is snow on all side streets and the parking lot. The D908 had no traction.

How you doing Larry? It was windy. There was no snow when I left but at one point the tire tracks were 2 feet wide and 3 inches deep. Heading across 18 proved to test my metal. The bike was drifting all over from the winds. At one point I tried the berm hoping for fluff that would blow and not pack but was actually worse and started sliding even more so I went back out in the frozen slush.

950. The 990's (newer) are injected, otherwise the exact same bike. Most don't know the 950 existed.

I'm going up to Cleveberg tomorrow to the bike show. Anyone in Columbus want to split the cost of gas and parking? I plan to leave in the morning kinda early, about 7 or so.

Later,
M
