    The other interesting thing to me in your pics is that you seemed to stop in the exact same spot on the wheel each time, or it's got multiple bends in it.

    Could be. Not an uncommon condition for me.

    You know, there some science crap going on here. One (major) dent and yes, always in the same spot. 9 times out of ten when I park at work, it's at 11:00.

    Sure has been quiet here.
    Not that the weather has been condusive to much related to riding.

    In the morning I plan to see how badly I have screwed up. The winter storm forecast of snow then freezing rain sounded like an invitation for turning my driveway into an ice pack so I did ..... nothing ... in the hope that leaving what we got for snow in place would soak up the rain and remain moveable. My plow is a Polaris Mv7, I have not seen it since before it went to Weare this past summer to work at the MVTR Rockcrusher Hare Scramble. I was told a few weeks ago that it had been serviced, the plow mounted and all was in readiness out in my back yard tent. Hopefully that is correct as my hip should may allow me to walk out there and get it but probably won't work long enough for me to make the walk back should it not work or I get stuck. Guessing it will be an interesting way to spend the birthday that marks me as officially OLD!

    The 'back' gets snowblowed. Letting the snow 'dry' for a spell has seemed to work over the years versus trying to move wet concrete. :baldy

    Not sure how that'll work out with a 4-wheeler plow set up :dunno

    Happy Birthday...and Festivus!

    Not sure about the "let it dry out" strategy that "Mr Clown" discussed, but based on what is still in My driveway this morning, it may take more than a quick snowblower action to get things cleared up around the place.

    Gotta go fix the machine before I can try to clean up the yard... That's what I will be doing this morning.

    Happy Xmas eve day to all you FF!
    Hope all your shopping duties are done!

    If yer gonna walk and drive all over it before you can get to it spare yourself the pain and suffering. Otherwise 'dry' snow, sun and daylight make it a bit more bearable for those of us that are pretty done with the whole snow thing to begin with.

    "pretty done" indeed. :vardy

    I'm gonna go give it a go and see what happens. I need to get out of here later anyway.


    Merry Christmas Maine Rider FFs!

    Ha! Truer words are seldom spoken.

    As you may have guessed, I didn't leave the snow in the yard by choice. As with any machine, sometimes things break. That was my day yesterday... And I didn't feel like attempting repairs in the rain (and since my shed is full up with bikes that need attention there is no room for snowblowers) so I get to do it today.

    Was looking at weather in AZ with longing earlier....

    BTW Happy Birthday Bruce!

    The birthday wishes are much appreciated, Thank you.
    I lucked out (mostly) on clearing the driveway. Heard something outside, it was a friend and his kids clearing off our vehicles and planning to shovel. I sent him out back to retrieve the Polaris and between him, his son and his 10 year old daughter they did most of it, first time on a 4 wheeler, she was grinning ear to ear as she and dad made a couple of passes with it.
    The mostly part is the 20' by the street, my neighbor hates to see the 'windrow' left by the street plows in front of our driveway so he cleared that off yesterday afternoon. Might be a while before we can get to the mailbox without sliding into the street, of course that is an excuse to start the Mv7.

    I did try to steal an "Adventure bike" image but apparently we spend too much time riding our bikes and not enough time making pictures of them... You will have to use your imagination ;)

    According to Wikipedia: both are correct.
