My shop is under my house, a walk out basement. I have spent the winter months not only starring but farkling and fondling. The longer the winter lasts the more farkling gets done. I usually start off with cleaning / maintenance and then let the stuff fly! I'll probably load one or more up and head south for a fix sometime soon!

I used to do that but 15 years ago the bike started staring back so I quit. Now it just gets a quick sideward glance as I pass through...

And there's hookers in Nevada, right?

Not only will I go into the garage to stare, but after I park, I'll turn around and oogle it as I walk away backwards.

It's a good thing I'm still in all my gear, because I've tripped over more than one curb that way.

It's been warm enough lately to go hang out in the barn. I got the Sirius hooked up. Did some Spring maintenance, and loaded the mousetraps. Back to the 30's late week...

I don't stare at my Wee, but now if I had an Aprilia or a Duc well that's different!

If it's too cold to ride, it's too cold to sit in my garage.
When it's cold outside, there is a fire in the fireplace and it's about 80 in the living room, no way am I sitting in the garage.

Between the moto and sled ... nice to ride all year, sucks to be wrenching all year.

I need to split the outer housing on my generator and get all the pebbles out of there, do an oil change on it, then align skis and go through my sled for the weekend.

Note: I didn't say it was too cold to ride, I said if it's too cold to ride... it's too cold to sit in the garage. I hate sitting in my garage.

Look at the bright side of the cold, you don't have to bother with ice.

I've still got the studded tires on the Mtn bike, but I think we're done with the ice. I only got out a couple of times. Bring on the warm weather...

Howsabout in a restaurant, you get a window seat so's you can gaze upon the bike whilst eating. People don't do that, do they...
