    Everything around here is covered.
    Most of the fire service roads on Reddish are 10"+ deep.
    I suspect that McDowell and west got more snow than that.

    As for the chain, it's all taken care of.... :evil
    thanks for the reminder Robert...


    Superbowl Sunday ride on mountain bikes on Sunday.
    Briery Branch, 10 AM supposed to be 42 F.

    well, you had better think EAST. and with the snow down here, that's not going to happen. unless you know some dirt down near VA beach.

    thanks for the update MM. Sounds like I'll have to resort to some local (lame ass) dirt roads.

    New, first time knobs on the GS and she's been sitting in the garage for a week now. Enough is enough.

    Freak, how ya doin? Remember that I ride one of those partley metal dual sport bikes as opposed to an RT!

    doing good, thanks. just watching the snow melt and wondering where you're going to find dirt. :lol2

    you could head up into Greene county and find some stuff north of Wolftown.

    Reddish last night for a moonlit XC ski.
    8" of snow, on top of glare ice..
    Too much melt, thaw, refreeze to venture around here.

    Hopefully not like the Mushman and his broken wing..

    Dirt ain't seen out here till late March at best. And even then your liable to run accross frozen ground.

    It was a little tough getting the GS started today. First several trys she spun really slow until the starter began clicking. Took the seat off and put a small heater blowing warm air on the battery for about thirty minutes then she fired right up. These BMW batteries suck with cold weather.

    They are nice. Different how they handle on the pavement. They roll over a lot quicker than the Tourances, good for lane changin. Didn't get a chance to push them on the twisties, there was still a lot of frozen runoff and snow patches, but they seem to stick in a medium push as well as the T's .

    But holly cow, they make a world of difference on the snow/ice/small spots of dirt that I could find (maybe not the ice). Only problem was the rear brakin loose up some hills, but that was the snow/ice and wouldn't have been as much of an issue outside of these shitty road conditions.

    Anxious to get on some unfrozen further-west roads.

    see ya in the rearview
