    From the loop I did yesterday out to Pine Grove. Fog was supposed to burn off, but all it did was lift a bit to the tops of the mountains. Was hoping for relief over the top of Hawk Mountain, but was confronted with a wall of fog. The first pic is after coming out the bottom of the cloud..... sort of. Second is where the Appalachian Trail crosses Swatara Camp Road. Third is where I picked up Texter Mountain Road on the way home.

    Nice. I love riding in those conditions. The sourlands get like that too.

    Going back about a decade, my first attempt at ice screws. Motice that they're installed from the inside.. Needless to say, my tubes were the weak link. As shitty as it was, it was huge fun while it lasted.

    I've come a long way since then. These carbide babies are incredible. The ONLY thing you can't rude through with these is deep wet snow over about 6".

    Riding at -24 C :-) On snow-icy roads it's fun to do it with sidecar :-) Izhevsk.

    Invasion of the Russians! Yikes!

    Yeah, it is separate. When you take the class you realize why!

    Just take everything you learned about riding a 2-wheeler, then do 90% of it wrong--and that turns out right for the 3-wheeler.

    A few years ago I had a friend who did some ice racing with a group of guys he knew . This guy showed up and tried out his new studded tire set up . See that green stuff on the ice ? He miscalculated the distance between the tire and the radiator . On the lake in Nashua , Iowa . 100_2282.JPG 100_2283.JPG 100_2284.JPG

    A few weeks ago. About 5°f that morning. My first snow with this bike. Just testing the waters before I dove down the steep hill to check my mailbox. Other than having to chip the ice away from the starter button( my bike lives outside), it was just like any other ride. Love this bike :)
