    Hey
    Maybe we should have a useless thread for us gay Eastern PA guys to twitter in. Post pictures of our bikes napping. And bitch about NJ and just shoot the breeze. If you think so, say anything you want here(within ADV rules that is). Just try not to be too hateful. Work out the winter cabin fever here......

    This happens to me every december. Nice summer & fall of riding, then the real crap weather sets in, and I get major crabby. All it takes is one day in the 40's of riding to make me happy happy. Watch, the first day like this, everyone will be riding and posting happy happy.
    Til then, you all suck. I'm ready to punch santa in the throat. (yea, I'm in retail).

    One thing that did make me feel a tad better is deciding to go to the ICE ralley in State Collage, Febuary. Sounded like a really stupid thing to do, so I'm in.

    Hope this thread petters off, so we can get back to the regular BS on PA ToR.

    I ordered my flywheel puller from dennis Kirk.. should have the bike back up by New Year,, hopefully it will be above freezing for a ride,, hopefully the tag will be somewhere I can get it and where I KNOW where it is,, seams I know all the tags when my bike is down...
    Nice thread,, but I'm not gay, "not that there is anything wrong with that" but my bike tends to take naps kinda due in part to I can barely reach the ground.. and on occasion,, I cant feel my legs,, or hands for that matter... makes for a more interesting ride!
    See if I can find a picture of it taking a nap,, without me underneath it...

    But unlike children, there is no looking forward to seeing what is bent/broken/scratched/ripped/torn from the mounts when they rise from that nap. :1drink

    This is the beauty of having shit bikes. My KTM is spotless. Its my 690SMC track bike. It never sees dirt or snow. Its super clean. But the TW200 and Vmax see everything. The VMax was free, and the TW I got off ebay. An easy little bike to trail ride and play in the snow. If it goes down, it goes down. I don't sweat it.

    Mark, Count me in on this. I think it will be fun. Are you going for the ADV thing? Or the other festivities that weekend in State College? This might inspure me to put tires on the RatMax. I wonder if I can get street knobbies for my VMax. I will start studding the tires now.

    I'm going for the ADV ICE gathering. I'm a Mansfield U alum. The PSU partys tend to get a bit over the top. But a bunch of liquered up ADVers sounds like fun.

    I'm not as hard core as some (you), so I probably will be hauling the bike down in the van, do a little riding there. I can get at least 4 bikes in my van (Sprinter), if you want to toss the Big Wheel, err TW in, and have some fun. Maybe DirtyM and a few other NE inmates will need a shuttle.

    Hope you and the family feel better soon.

    My Sons Birthday is Feb 19th. So I will be blowing off the first day. Come the next morning weather permiting. If you have a free spot. Maybe I will come back with you and I will take the mighty tw. If its nice, I will take the RatMax and plan the round trip. It all depends on time , space and weather...... I need a the TARDIS.
