    Beautiful sunset photos Robert! Glad you got out and rode (and upheld the reputation of the Arctic Adventure Riders :D ).
    Missed you at the wild party out at the Abbey. Too bad - next thing you know, Mike will clutter the place up with bikes and we won't be able to use the dance floor; the bandstand and bar will have to be moved outside with the mosquitoes. :rofl

    I am ready, but my driveway and local streets are glazed over.
    -6 deg and no hope of a warm up. what to do???
    After spending the last 6 months rehabilitating from surgery, I just don't think riding on an ice rink is in my best interest, especially with the an entire riding season ahead of me.

    Don't be too concerned. You look like a nice poser IMO.

    Nice bike, great pics, but great big balls you got there. No studs (or lugs, as some call them) and riding on the frozen shit, DAMN!

    Now the pics you have posted are of 2 different bikes,,,right?
    What are they?

    Yes two Aprilia's from Italy with Rotax motors 1000 cc.I just got into these bikes a couple of years ago,I was with the cruiser crowd for years.I'm glad i switched!I still have a 98 heratige springer <Harley> I started on bikes in 1972 on a kawa, bighorn 305 cc It was a dual sport but i don't think that word was used back then.

    I remember the 305 BigHorn. Man was that the bike we all wanted!
    You lucky guy.
    I had one of the first Elsinore 250's released to the general public. My dad had to test it out first, man that thing kicked his arse. It took him a few months to fully heal. I loved it.
    Sorry to hear about your exit from reality with Harley's, but I for one are glad to have you back riding for fun instead of show (my opinion only).

    When did Rotax begin making bike powerplants? I have for years used them in Ultralight, and Sno-go installation. I guess I should have known, but never gave it a thought that they would advance to this great position.
    Very cool.
    Ride on Iceman.

    You ought to consider a run to Dust 2 Dawson (City) one of these summers, don't you think?

    Surely you remember the Can-AM?

    Excellent bikes, Rotax powered, I had one that was insane..or maybe it was the rider.

    Psssst-all those older BMW F series singles? Engine by Rotax. Bike by Aprilia. :wink:
