Pretty sick video of a guy riding a knife ridge in winter. Maybe someone can re-post this as a video. I can't figure out how and don't have time to keep trying.

I've seen them without the snow, but all I gotta say is, those fookers are nuts. No way in Hades would I ever consider something like that. My sense of balance is no longer what it used to be..... even walking something like that no less; forget about trying to ride it.

Loftus, I need a BWDR as well to make the bike complete. I can send you some $$$ via PayPal to cover any costs and shipping.
One pint will be enough payment friend.

I got queasy just watching it. I've seen a similar video in the summer when things were dry. But, in the snow and ice is like a death wish. That guy has absolutely NO fear of heights.

He just sold and bought a bike right before Valentines. Unless he took the possible profit and planned for a really good gift, he is probably in the doghouse anyway.

LOL! It's all good, she actually said that she likes this bike more than the 1200GS and that "it's kind of sexy all in black with black farkles!" We celebrated Valentine's this past weekend, she also has a great gift coming tomorrow and she is getting a sweet day at the spa when we go skiing in a couple of weeks...I'm not stupid! Of course I do my best to keep momma happy!

At your age, you're worrying about trivial stuff like that???

Must admit I have a card, a box of candies, and a bag of pistachios for the missus (she hates candy), but the deed is done. Won't mean squat for a future kitchen pass, but what the hey. Gotta try.
