    Well it is my last day of work here. The company I work for has closed down the shop. I am looking forward to what ever the new year brings. Happy New Year and all the best to you all!

    Hey Taz, Happy New Year to you and the family. Hope all is well.
    Were you able to get out for a ride during the warm spell we hear about or is the albino pumpkin in storage?

    Hey Grumpy!! I now have a garage attached to the house, so the bike never really is in storage!! Yes, I went for a wild spin on December 24th! It was a lot of fun and the temp was about 16 degrees!!

    Thanks Outback! This is very weird for me as I have never been out of work before and I have been working since I was 14. Nice that you got to ride in December. :D Best wishes to Mrs Outback and the Outback kids!:lol2

    I'll make sure to pass it on! In the mean time, I hope you find work soon enough, it will keep you busy and away from evil temptation...!! :jack

    Time for a tread bump.

    Anyone left in the area? Any new riders?

    I'm still here. Hopefully this year will be the year my son (25) finally gets the urge to ride.
    I get to clear in all the new guys getting to my unit (1 air maintenance squadron) so I'm keeping a look out for new riders.

    Looks like there are still 3 of us checking the forum, hopefully more will as the weather gets better.

    Had the Tenere out for awhile today. It felt great!!

    Lucky dog!! I still have too much snow around to make it out of the yard. :-(
    Speaking of dogs, have you ever heard anything from DownDog since our ride? I wonder how he's doing.
    Regards....Jeff

    The driveway was clear so I made a run for it. I see downdog driving around town but haven't talked to him. Not sure if he is on the site. Would be good to go riding with him again.
