    I did my best to eat all the food Pinecone and Flash had been working hard to make.

    :dg

    I didn't eat it all, but I made a pretty sizeable dent in what was there. *burp*.

    Good times.

    Happy Holidays peeps. :1drink

    I got in 12k miles on the Strom (record for me) so it was a great year for riding.

    Who turned on the Freezer outside?? :huh

    Yes, very good riding year this year. Seems like winter was a little delayed starting too, it was nice to ride up until Thanksgiving. Now the roads are salted the main bikes will go to bed, but the KLR650 might be brought out on occassion if there are clear enough days.

    Well - it IS winter. It's not like we weren't expecting it.

    But yes, it's a bit nippy out, and so begins shoppe season. :clap

    Had a good time in the shed today, I did. :thumb

    Okay, two KLR250's stashed for first time (12 & 14 year old boys) riders on xmas morning:evil We'll need to successfully complete the ATV Safety Training CD and Safety Training class. Considering no previous riding experience, a MN winter and no private property for "skills practice" any suggestions you all may have for facilitating a successful spring intro would be appreciated.

    Let the pro's handle it. Go to the motorcycle show, there'll be a few booths for that sort of thing. If you're like me, it's really hard to teach your own kids.

    I know it is a bit of a haul but the Glacial Lakes Motorcycle Club (http://www.glmc.org/ ) has an off road riding area by Watertown SD

    We usually go out there early in the spring to play around. They also offer scholarship money to any youth taking a safety course.The area is free and can be as simple or challenging as you wish to make it.

    If you watch the web site you will see when we are heading out there and we can maybe set up some car pooling.

    Only 7 weeks to go :clap

    I was considering this. Good to know the reviews are positive. This looks to be a great place for that 1st ride.

    Ah yes, I picked up a tag there earlier this year. I'll keep an eye on the website for sure.

    Thanks:beer

    Well, you shouldn't have been naughty then should you?

    Although being naughty can be quite fun, admittedly.

    I've stockpiled plenty of coal over the years. So, there's that.

    Two KLR's? Cool.

    I got a minibike when I was 11, Dad showed me how to ride, sort of. :huh I cracked my wrist, crashed a few times and got chased by the cops before I was 15. This is how you used to learn how to ride. :lol3 Mom always made me wear a helmet though. :D

    Learning how to swim was about the same. Go in water and try not to drown.
