Seeing how this weather getting me too close to death- either by suicide or my wife killing me for my unending bitching- I decided to do something else motorcycle related. But first a rant. F'n, F'n, F'n F'n snow just won't stop! Since last fall I had my FJR in our driveout basement for it's winter maintenance and annual deep cleaning. About 14 days ago the local weatherman said that we would be getting our first 60 degree day in over 100 days. Mind you, it's not like we ever gor anywhere CLOSE to 60 in those 100+ days. It has been well below freezing with epic snows for most of that time. I ran out and fired up our tractor and spent a few hours clearing the 20 foot long my 5 foot high snowpile that separates our basement from where the town plow piles it at the end of our road. I then got out the snowblower to clear what was left. Half way through the auger gearbox blew up. At over $350 for a replacement housing for that poorly made MTD POS it's time to spend $2K on a better built machine. Great. A few days later the snow actually did melt out of that muddy path. I got the bike out and struggled with it up the incline and thankfully didn't tip it over. By the time I reached my paved driveway the bike looked like it had gone through an enduro ride. (Why did I bother detailing it?) We had one day of riding before the next snow storm covered everything under 10 inches of snow that is still here. Forecast calls for more of the same right into April. Now to my happy place. I recently picked up a street legal KM100. Since I was a kid I thought that the mini G5s were cool. It's in decent shape and starts right up but needed some cleaning and tires if I was going to plate it. It was 10 degrees out in the garage, but it started first kick. I rode it through that 10 inches of snow and parked it in the heated basement to melt the snow on it.
