    I gotta move, we're almost knee deep in snow. I'm sure someone somewhere is even deeper and stuck

    My rides are usually sliding and out of control this time of year

    She left to go back South to Mississippi late last night. The house was pretty quiet this morning.

    This is my last post to Advrider from work, I am retiring in 30 minutes after 30+ years. It was fitting of Andrew, friend and co-worker, to ride today because I'm handing the "are you nuts?" title over to him (the Kawi 250SM). Good kid, we pedal, run, ride, kayak together but no longer work together. He's also taking over part of my job, Cartographer.


    Sorry I didn't ride my 950 today, the 640 was closest to the door.

    Awesome Mike!!! For those of you that only know Mike from the internet, I must tell you, he is a great friend and teacher. My dual sport experience has been fantastic while riding and learning with him.
    He has mucho patience with riders that don't have as much experience as he does.

    And that's just about everyone he rides with.

    Congratulations and many happy trails in the future.

    Thanks Tom and others.


    For now, I am taking the Month of January and trying to catch up on unfinished home projects and finding a part time job to maintain the "mistresses" that reside in my garage.

    I may take a trip south to either the Daytona or Atlanta Supercross then over to visit my sister in western Tennessee on the 950 in March

    Once the snow melts, the 950 will be back on the trails, for now 2-track
