Nice. That is one I have been considering. Still dreaming of a WR250R though.

Have you broke any blinkers off yet?

Minivan 1 Spree 0

From My Pictures


Mitch had a misadventure commuting to school this morning, but aside from a bruised leg and ego he's fine. He's learned not to t-bone minivans. The Spree, not so fine. We'll be diving in on that tomorrow night. We'll need a new fork for sure; hopefully the frame isn't tweaked.

Glad to here he is ok.

Good thing his speed were relatively low(50cc).

Riding in the low temp can really slow down ones ability to think and react. Be careful out there.

Yikes!

I sure am glad to hear Mitch is OK. Spree's are much easier to fix. This time of year (and early spring) is my least favorite for commuting it seems like people loose their vigilance for keeping an eye out for us.

Like Karl said reactions can be a little slowed and what with three pairs of gloves, two jackets, long johns, and moon boots it can be a little cumbersome to control a two wheeled device. Be careful out there.

Beware the evil minivan!!

Sorry to hear about the ADV Spree too. Hopefully she's fixable.
