    @OU812 See you in May!

    There was treacherous ice out there today. It was easy to let your guard down because it was nudging 60 out there.

    We saw two cars heading over Mount Sterling Gap. Other than that, not a soul out there today. Blue bird.

    I got motivated and assembled my application yesterday. Immediately after school today, I'm off to the post office to get it in the mail. Hagale!

    Let me know when you're heading that way. I need to get back up play to in the woods some. It's been way too long. (Hopefully, those wheels will be a bit dirtier by then, so I won't get wheel envy!)

    All my tags are expired. I wish they sold permanent plates for dirt bikes.

    How far do you plan to ride the WR on the highways? Just for gas & snacks? You aren't dual-sporting it like the DRZ's are you?

    I bet it's tough keeping up with you riding a real dirt bike!

    This bike isn't very good on the road, so no long pavement runs. I will let you know when I head out that way.

    I've got some catching up to do.

    We did a weekend trip. I finally got to take the new rig out into the big, bad world.

    On my way in, I saw a bunch of snow at high altitude. I didn't believe my eyes. I had to ride up there to see for myself. Yep, snow.

    We had a small electrical issue, and while we were effecting repairs, xj35 and 400psi happened along.
