Most excellent!

Thought I'd share this photo to show it's not just a "guy thing."
Helped an ex-gf move her Monster into her bedroom for the winter a couple years ago. Sorry guys, I think she's married now.

No matter how hot the rider chick is, some other guy is sick and tired of fixing her bike...

Keep mine stored in my Father-in-laws garage. I was over there last week, it was only -5 so I fired it up and went up and down the street a few times...God I cannot wait for spring to get here.

Garage love

Finally a thread that absolves me of any responsibility for my oncoming lunacy.... Many hours of isolation, happy and contented... Trip planning in full swing, recruiting anyone with a bike....

Yep. Usually smoke a cigar to pass the time while staring and plotting. I'm currently living 105 miles from the garage so it's harder than it was last year. But I'll be doing a "garage run" next week to pick up a bike or two so they'll be ready for the warm weather dirt season.

Sadly, I've given up recruiting anyone with a bike for my trips. All my friends are married with too many responsibilities (kids, jobs, bills, pesky stuff like that), or they just don't have the time/cash/desire to take a long trip.

But winter is the time when I stare at my bike (sitting just outside the office front doors right now, where I can see it) and plan in excruciating detail my next trip. And the backup trip. And the trip I'll take if I have to go to plan C. And then next year's trips. And my dream trip.

Is this lunacy?

Lunacy? Nope, just wishful thinking.

I do it everyday. Even better, today is was over 80 degrees and I took it out for a nice ride. Do not hate me because I live in Texas and ride year round. Remember me in August while my bike sits in the garage.
