KTM's are from Austria! It's been said that Austrians are the "perfect" Germans! I never met a KTM I didn't like!

GS: Jeder weiß, dass die deutschen Motorräder obersten regieren.

C5: हाँ, हमारे परमेश्वर महान हैं

GS: Was sprichst du? Irgendeine Art von minderwertiger Dialekt?

C5: पांच अरब आत्माओं Enfields सवारी!

GS: Das verstehe ich nicht!

Don't worry, it will make sense after you buy the Connie.

That's where Hitler was born, and that didn't work out too well.

Ouch...

So when is the next time we're going to the training grounds? I got the bike fully legal today and took it out in some mudpuddles and stuff. Too much fun. Just ordered my case guards from Thumpertalk. Might work on the carb a bit before I go but once it dries out I should be more or less straight.

Wheeeee

edit: and how bout this snow?

Unless, you have a Ural, it's looking like a drive to eat...I've got plenty of milk for the kids, booze for me, food, fuel, a generator, a new snowblower that I am dying to play with and a fire in fireplace...Bring on the snow!

It's only quarter to ten, patience is a virtue! It will be 30 by midnight! Tomorrow my neighbors won't think I'm so crazy when I'm making a path from the street to their front steps! If I'm lucky, the little old ladies in the cul de sac will make me either some cookies or brownies for keeping their husbands from having a snow shoveling heart attack. It only needs 1.5" of snow to work!

My last year in Michigan, from the second week of January til the end of February, I blow my driveway & both neighbors drive, walk & side walk in front of our houses every morning. That was 6 week straight. I use to like the snow and still do, but now that I'm riding again this is just one more day I can't.

Oh that's right, my bike is in the shop. Let it snow bitches!!! If I can ride neither can anyone else. I sound like one of my kids when they were younger.

Well this sucks...I imagined myself enjoying a hot cup of cocco in front of the fireplace with my kids, eating some of Mrs. Hendersons cookies and seeing all the good work my snowblower had done. I didn't picture me sitting in the clinic with patients in the wating room at 0830...

At least it was pretty for a few hours.
