    I feel like the front fairing and gas tank on the Tenere is big enough that I could start a small campfire on it and keep myself warm. I'd be fine until I had to fuel up.

    Seems like it might be a good weekend to fire up the garage heater and do oil, coolant, spark plug, and (my first ever attempt) valve check on the DRZ.

    And one more today since I was right here and all. The very nice policeman informed me that I needed to get by bike the hell off his sidewalk so here is a picture from the parking lot.

    I got a balaclava and I figured out how to program routes onto my GPS and I have a bucket full of zip ties to mount it! Throw up the new tag so I have something to do tomorrow.

    I've got all that except the balaclava and the GPS. I do have zip ties and the weekend off though. If the local shop has balaclavas, I will have one tomorrow though. Going to be a COLD start.

    Ive got a neck gator, a baclava, a nice knit hat(warm weather gear from bear suit lol) and a Garmin Zumo is going to be here in a couple days for the Buell:clap I just dont like to ride when its cold, but I will be much better equipped to with the heated grips and all. If I decide to buy heated gear, I already have a place to plug it in to.

    Got some winter gear (not heated) being held for me to pick up tomorrow morning at 8:30. It's about 10 miles between here and there. Hope I can tough it out that far...

    Hope there are some new tags posted to chase in the morning... :D

    Work is over rated. I'd rather be riding! :grin I think I may put my snowmobile suit on in the morning though.

    I would rather be riding to. Only problem is time isn't on my side and sometimes when it is I don't feel like doing anything much less riding :( I am hoping this year I at least get to put more miles on the Uly than I did the V-Strom last year. That will make it a good year :clap

    Not the tag I was going for but the one I could find. Details when I get home. 411 goes over the black river not far from here and apparently there used to be a giant rusted out steamboat shell. It's a nice spot. The neighbors have a couple giant boxers but they don't bite.

    Just for reference, and I hate to give away one of my search tools, but markers can be located using the following site:

    http://www.ncmarkers.com/search.aspx

    I've found a similar site in every state I've searched for tags in.

    That's kind of down in your neck of the woods, I think. Closer to you than to me, at least. I think there's at least one more parked down close to there. If you can get out tomorrow, you should run for them.
