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

The new Honda NC700X pseudo adventure was there as well as the new 1200 Triumph Adv bike. The rest was SOS as far as dual sports.

If you want a cruiser, leather or skanky chicks, it's a gold mine.


The RTW talk was way too short. Seemed like he barely got started when someone said time's up
