No Beer though. Closed Monday and Tuesday.

Not a bad day. The first half was sunny, the rest was fine behind the enormous fairing. 154 miles today.

Awesome!

I an only envious. I was glad it was warm enough to work out side today. Installing some railings we built. Thinking about the bike, not yet but soon.

All maintenance is done, ready to go. Last Saturday I sat on it. Brrroom Brrroom.

Where to?

David

Hi David,
This is why I have bought "salt bikes" the last few years. It's not that my regular bikes are some kind of expensive rides but I don't have the heart to ruin them. No matter what anyone says about protective coatings by Boeing and such, I know if I rode in the salt my bikes would have pockets of corrosion that would bother me. Used Wings come up cheap in fall and winter. They aren't my bike of choice for summer, but they make 42 degree days like today as comfortable as you're going to get on two wheels. Come spring they get cleaned up and sold.
As for where next, I took some decent pictures of ice covered waterfalls. I have Buttermilk falls, a few south of Watkin's Glen, and one or two unnamed falls and ice pockets. Then I rode by something better. (Not approved by Glasswife) Maybe I'll wait to post it for a day or so. Nobody is going to ride out to get it in the gropple that is coming down right now. More of the same crap weather for the next week.

Well done!

It is good for practicing smooth throttle, clutch, and braking control. A little too much of any will make it . Actually, it is easier to pick up than the GSA I had a few years back. Goldwings only tip over at a 45 degree angle.
I had another Honda out this morning. Unfortunately it was the snowblower. We had the heaviest 2.5 inches of snow that I've ever tried to shovel. Heart attack snow. Anyone want to buy a lodge "In the higher elevations"? I'm getting sick of this.
Time to hike up the hill and plow.

Fun for sure.

I was thinking the same on the amount of lean... more like a grounding then a tip over.

Wet heavy snow here too.... come on Spring!

I like that. I've always said doing a U turn is like turning a battleship around. Good thing they come with reverse thrusters.
