Any of y'all taking JVB up on his reduced price Jesse bag deal?

Oh, and My Dad's 'Wing is for sale if any of y'all want a 1500cc Anniv Wing. He's not riding it. Mom needs the $$.

Other than that, I got pics of the house from my little brother. MAN! Did y'all get hammered with the white shit!

Rode the KS to Hburg yesterday, heading out on the KTM here shortly.

Beware of black ice.

Helped a dumbass yesterday in a cage that must have thought the posted speed limit was OK only to find himself up on the bank against a tree, no real damage. Good thing I carry all them straps in the truck......I should charge for this stuff but don't, need to keep the good karma account full......


Watching my 7yo daughter play laser tag and enjoying it at the moment......she's kicking most of the boys butts! Teaching her how to shoot an Air Rifle has gone a long way since shes hitting all her targets.

Well you need to be careful of the back country gravel roads too.

Still had fun...

Holy crap, yeah! Had a lot of fun, but the gravel roads in my county are no longer gravel, they're mud.

Went to check up on my favorite water crossing:



Quite a bit higher than it usually is, and with a little more of a current:



The road going in was 85% clear of snow and ice, but boy was it sloppy!
