    Well, here it comes again. It is beautiful though...I love how everything gets so quiet at night when it's snowing hard.

    Doesn't look like we'll get much, if anything at all, here in SW NH :clap. "More seasonal temps to follow" (warmer :D). Not time to put the bike away, still plenty of riding to be had.

    Looks like it's here to stay. I held off on putting my bikes away, but this weekend I'll be pushing them through the snow to their winter resting place (a shed).

    My wife made it clear she wants the garage back.

    I rode Thursday and I did another 60 miles (On the Hill) Friday. Got home before the rain. Now I do think it is over as well.

    First plow of the season this morning. About 4-5 inches of light fluffy stuff.

    Seems like I just put the plow away from last spring.

    Got home on the bike from Colorado on Thanksgiving Day. Looks like I just made it. It's been snowing ever since.

    Some snow squalls and flurries, but nothing more than a dusting here in Corinth. I'm hoping the snow holds off in earnest at least until I finish getting in next years wood.

    The roads are still salt free... probably not too much longer though. The WR/X is ready for rides at least until the snow gets too deep in the yard and woods.

    Nice tool Lost Viking. I got a camp near Saranac Lake and going by your photo I'd say its probably got snow too.

    He said that was last winter, but I am waiting to get mine out as well. They are in the garage and tuned up and waiting.

    I think I'm reading that correct as this years snow for the Can Am with plow. Sharp looking tool. I like Can-Am's bodywork on their 4 wheel line up. I could put one like that to good use for sure.

    The Yammy sleds look good too. Seeing that Enticer brings back late 70's memories and my first trip up to Old Forge. We were running and Enticer 340 and an SS440. There was also a touring model in the 540 range we used to run down in MD.

    What year is the Phazer and what's hiding under the hood of the Mimi Z?

    6.5" here overnight & 3F this morning. A shot across the bow I guess.

    Counting on the thaw next week, still have stuff to do.

    The temps have cimbed again, the snow is gone and the rain has cleaned the roads. Although it is wet out today, I took the opportunity to make it another day to ride a bike to work! Had the CB1 out and ready to service and wash to be put away for the winter and since I had not done it yet, I rode it to work instead! :D Funny I di not see any other bikes on the road today. :deal

    Even up here in the Berkshires, temp display on the bike said 54 degrees.

    Rode about 50 miles on the big bike. Didn't see any other bikes on the road.

    Needed to go up to Home Depot to pick up an electrical part; decided to do it on the bike.

    About 100 miles of back road and woods wandering. Even got home early enough to hose the bike and change the oil...good day!

    Riding in December in New England.

    Maybe this Global Warming is good for something.
