    Whoa, 48 hours without a single post on this forum. Everybody OK? Were the Mayans correct? Or were you all depending on DR's to get to your computers? WTF?

    Backed the Tiger out of the garage today and ran it for about 15 minutes. About all I can do until late April. Chinook conditions bringing warm air to Fairbanks...

    I used to think you seemed like a nice guy until I saw the comment highlighted above. :ddog If a DR seems recalcitrant about getting to a computer, it's only because it wants to stay outside and play instead of sit in front of a computer screen. It's not because it's incapable of getting to a computer. :thumb

    I feel so bad about leaving my #1 DR stored outside in a cold shed that I went out there and gave her a couple of hugs and sat on her. She sure seems lonely. Since I can't ski I might have to take a headlamp and blanket out there and sit and read through topo maps with her again this winter, discussing future adventures. She said it's HER turn to go to Nome with me next summer! In the meantime, I'll have fun riding my bicycle with the new studded tires, but it's just not the same.

    Since my living room is upstairs, my superbabies hibernate in a spare bedroom downstairs. :brow

    And it's not just a guy thing either. I once helped a girl move her Ducati Monster into her living room one winter a few years back. She was a bartender at Koot's and her ex was the GM of MotoCorsa Ducati in Portland. Needless to say, it was a very nice Monster. Because of this encounter, I ended up with my own Monster. :wink:

    Yeah, I bet that’s not all you "helped” her with. What's that 'wink' about? :evil :lol3

    See, Duchess, we don’t leave our bikes out in some cold, lonely dark shed like some poor dog chained up in the back yard. Mark wouldn’t do that to Comet or his bikes. Neither would I. :nono
    Oh, it’s so sad. :2cry
    Your bike could be inside with you where your friends can marvel at it & pet it & you can play & snuggle with it night & day.

    How can you be so mean & cruel?! :cry

    Well, since my reason for posting was not to offend, but to wake up a little response, looks like we got some IN VIVID COLOR. Little did I know that the normally loquacious Loquita was in cruel cryo-storage and wouldn't be stirring til springtime. Perhaps Maggie should be allowed to sit astride her til then and really warm her up. If this weather keeps up, perhaps we should all meet out in the shed with a bottle of good Scotch.

    I received a call this morning, wondering why I hadn't replied to a couple responses to my post about my lonely motorcycle in the shed. Well.... Last year she was in my garage and the other bike was outside, not even in a shed. I don't have room in my garage for two motorcycles and my car and .......... several bicycles, 10 sets of skis, numerous boots, lots of outdoor gear, extra tires, motorcycle parts, blah blah... I need a bigger garage and a smaller house!

    Now that I have been instructed about proper bike storage procedures, I will have to make amends. Next summer I will rearrange the furniture in my living room and make room for one of my motorcycles, unless I feel well enough to ride one of my bikes to the Lower 48 as originally planned.

    Wow, having a motorcycle in my living room might make me feel like a true rider!! and Maggie is NOT allowed to sit on my bike. I really don't think she will fit through the shed door. it was a tight squeeze getting the handlebars through, and Maggie's love handles are much bigger.

    Cheers - it snowed!!!! :D

    I was working on a tight deadline yesterday and was focusing on my story/photo essay about the incredibly-tough (BAD ASS) linemen I work with and not on motorcyle talk. But now that I'm done with my magazine article (and very proud of the result!!!!) I started thinking more about this thread, looking at it with the usual dark-blonde logic.

    Based on Mark H's two responses, I know whom to call on when I need assistance moving a motorcycle into my house. :D But now I have a rhetorical question. After Mark helped a lady movie her Monster into her living room, he ended up with his own Monster. I wonder if he helps me move one of my DRs into my house if he would end up with his own DR? :hmmmmm

    Since he already owns quite a few motorcycles, he probably doesn't have room for any more so I could ask him to help me move something smaller that he probably doesn't already own, like... hmmm.... a pink tutu.

    :lol3
