    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    I hear you Brad

    Just got through pushin' 8-10" of snow around the driveway. Who needs to belong to a gym with an aerobic workout like that just waiting outside the door?
    We need to get set-up like the Sweedish guy with the Dakar 650 and the big 'ole spikes in his knobbies.
    I once had a spike in my knobby, but in the interest of family values (combined with my fear of Trinty) I will leave that unsaid.

    Unhappy

    Just be carefull shovelling that white stuff. Many people croak each year from heart attacks as they try to hard to get rid of that white stuff.
    I used to shovel snow too, untill I moved to South Florida where today it's a balmy 55 F

    What is a shovel?

    I move my snow the way any good motorcyclist would, with two wheels and an engine...

    The snowblower is the green thing covered with snow.

    How do you convert a dishwasher into a snow blower?

    Sorry!

    In the past two weeks I've rode about 200 miles on the New (1985) K100. Did about 25 miles yesterday. Cold here but it's possible to "cut a block".

    I have a trip to the beach (North Myrtle) planned for next week. No bikes just me and Elizabeth. How can I convince my girlfriend to sell her new Sporster and get a Beemer? I told her she might like the "Buzz" of the K100.

    Take her for a ride, mang. When she discovers how nice it is to not listen to all that racket, she might be intrigued.

    Hey Dave...

    How old is your wife (Tina, I think)?

    Elizabeth is 44, professional, christian but for some darn reason she wanted a Harley. She bought a 1200 Sporster, one of the most expensive back in December. My thoughts were "Ouch"! But, it's what she wanted. I felt like I couldn't talk her out of it and I considered begging... "Elizabeth, buy me a New Harley". Nooooo I couldn't do that. (I wanta 30ish foot sail boat!) I figured she'll figure out the motorcycle thing soon enough. "Honey, I'll leave the Sporty at home and ride with you. Where's the heated vest"? It's coming I know. So she might cut her second set of teeth on the R75/6 (without the side car).

    Now back to the question. What did Tina start out on? I hope it wasn't a Harley!

    She (Elizabeth) makes a lot of noise (almost wets her pants) and begs when I do a 4 second 0-60 in the Cobra!

    Mike
