Nice John, don't forget to spray your bike down with WD40...

Glad to hear that you and Humvee both got out there...I am sooooooooo jealous...Hoping to get the Wooly Mammoth out of DCMD's parking lot on the weekend, as long as we don't get too much snow over the next couple of days...I want her closer to me - ready to roll whenever the spirit moves me (and the weather cooperates...Great pictures, by the way...

For Winnipeg and the surrounding area!

Brian you may want to stay south for a few more days. This from today's Free Press.

Eoar

Anyone from the Winnipeg Area going to the EOAR? It's the weekend after the Ice Breaker in Wawa?

Got a few hours in.
Never got hasseled by the man but, was ready for it every time I saw a cruiser.

Saw a few kids the way I like them (seperated from me by a sheet of safety glass to keep all the germs, drool and other unpleasentness from me) that gave me big smiles and waves.
I always try to waave back. Good PR for us anti-social motorcycle people.
Is it against the law to ride motorcycle in Winter? John and Humvee both have mentioned that cruisers were following/talking to them. Just curious.

That blue KLR looks great in those pics!

I once had a cop park behind me while I was talking to a friend. He mostly wanted to look at the bike, as he was interested in the type.


Got a snow day today, so I visited my bike to give myself something to get excited over. Unfortunately it's quite out of touching distance.

Wildwood has a matt charcoal grey 2013 Tenere. Decent looking machine. Piles of new Ducati's and some Triumphs too.

My Omni-Cruise arrived after I got home, but after looking at the bike and then at the device, I don't think there will be any clearance problems at all.

I probably won't be able to take in both.

The Ice Breaker will be my May ride.

They were probably just making sure the bikes had insurance at this time of year. "They" can be a curious bunch.
As Mark mentioned some are also genuinely interested in what people are driving or riding.
