Here I am three hours later. Our "30 hour window of decent weather" was not quite accurate. It is snowing like hell outside. I decided that I'd rather not do my packing and final checks in the sub zero garage next week so I'm keeping the bike inside. If only I had an elevator. I could have saved all that tractor work of the last couple of days.

Hahaha - I was thinking the same thing.

This winter has been a little over-the-top.
I'm feeling the same urges as Glass, reading the same RRs and yearning for the siren song of the southwest.
Those last minute deals to Vegas sure are tempting, and I hear they rent dirt bikes.

No need to go past 30 seconds there folks.

And my wife thought I was nuts this week when I started shoveling a path through the yard this week to liberate my bike from the shed. Only 50 more feet to go, but it will take a digging iron to go through the snow plow piles.

I'm subscribed to this one.

Hahaha - I was talking to a buddy who lives a few miles south of you Glass.
He sent me this clipping.

So, I'm a lout and karma's gonna get me?

That's a damn funny story.

Glasswife is currently in the Keys. I OTOH spent the last three hours plowing, salting, and hand digging out the 1/4 mile driveway that leads to our vacation rental- in the 35 degree rain.

Oh, and the bike was cleaned to perfection before it left the basement.

Besides all that, lets not forget who is King of this castle. If she shows up here early and has anything to say it's Bang- Zoom!

I use this in my garage. I work out there when it's 25 below, in short sleeves. Works amazing.

Too bad you can't find a good used ski tow from a deserted ski center and install it on that driveway. Just the ticket for dragging the bike out and up the drive, and you could open it to the neighborhood kids and use the revenue for motorcycle stuff. Probably have to lean an old mattress up against the garage door so their ski tips wouldn't scratch it all up though.

Little piece of friendly advice from someone who has worked with equipment his entire life.

Do not be walking under a bucket that is lifted, MAJOR mistake. Always place your bucket down when you are not on your tractor.


Looking forward to your ride report, I have been in the Desert since December :P

I enjoyed your Ural CC ride report. Your earlier comments about age and doing things while you can hit home. Have a great ride.
