It was cold and raining in Vegas, and it didn't take long for the snow to fly.
This is just north south of Cedar City, UT - just north of St. George. It was snowing by Toquerville.



In Grand Junction this morning, gassing up before leaving - wanted to get back in time for the game



Glenwood Canyon

His bike did bring the snow!

Doesn't look that much different than the current V7 Racer, which are gorgeous to look at.
The small blocks got some nice updates, but those 'limited edition' V7's are a little spendy for my tastes, for a retro package.

If I had that much money and didn't buy a restored Norton....Mark would never hang out with me again

The entire motorcycle community follows Blake. Three days after Blake gets a Kawasaki W650, Motorcycle Classics Jan/Feb Issue declairs it one of Tomorrows Classics
