Almost 60* here in Rio Vista. We are supposed to get rain while y'all are getting the snow. I think we're getting the better deal.

Just remember, that stuff over in Big Bend turns to some seriously sticky gumbo when it gets wet.

Yeah, been there done that Albie. I won't even enter the park if it's raining. I will just go to the National Park and do some riding around there.

I'm a little late for this one seeing as I just woke up. Oh well. Don't get stuck out in the blizzard.

Don't forget to have a beer or 13 at the Starlight. Always an interesting evening there.

We stayed in the Hostel (shit hole) up the road in 2009, we saved money on lodging so we could put in a full night of drinking at the Starlight....

A CLEAN, comfortable room with a great bed and private, shiny porcelain throne is worth every penny after a long, hard day in the desert. Never punish yourself.

Sorry Doc, but I didn't see your note till just now. Today is the wife's birthday so we've been galavanting about town having a good time. We went and saw a movie for the first time in ages...Life of Pi. Really enjoyed it.

Hope you had an excellent ride!~

Got the 690 all buttoned up and took a quick test ride. Wow, seat of the pants dyno says much more power with the fresh top end!!

Northern Iowa (any place north of I-80 in my book) seems like it's always cold in the winter. Brrrr. No thanks.

My sister lives in Lincoln (Nebraska) and they really got slammed by the cold weather. She headed south to Austin to escape. In view of the forecast looks like she made a smart choice.

You know, that cememnt low water bridge! They took it out..sorry, no pix..anyway, they are putting in a new bridge and unless they get it done before the spring rains, it will be tough to cross that river..anyway, here is our track and stats for the day

Glad that you got to get out and enjoy a ride Doc!


Albie, now that you finally got the KatieM back together you can go on and on about how reliable they are to us all again...

for at least another 10-20 hours of runtime
