On a different topic, I am making a run to Ogdensburg this week- most likely Saturday, so if anyone has something waiting there I could pick it up...

I have some tires waiting for me. If you are going, I'd be happy to contribute to your gas.

I admitted defeat last night and through in some stabalizer and pulled the battery.

120 days until the next riding season

Had fun riding this past season with a bunch of lads from this thread, maybe a pub night once the holidays are over ?

You sold your sled! Now you've gone and done it! Dollars to donuts we're in for a record snow fall this winter!

My bike didn't want to go this morning. The battery has basically reached the end of its natural life (7 years old now) and the cold this morning was just too much for it so I took the car to work.

With 2-feet of snow on the way this weekend, I might have to put it away sooner than later. Going to ride to the heated storage and park it tonight. Snif, snif.

You actually were going to ride today?!

Suppose to be sunny and 0c on Saturday though.

Yeah, but with a couple of cm's of snow tomorrow, the city will probably salt the road and make things messy. And 30-40 cm for Sunday!

True...true... I left the mud from our last trail ride on my bike to shield it from the salt!
