    Quincy ride

    Bryan,

    My main computer is out of commission for a short period as I await for the arrival of a new power supply. Then modifications, to ensure proper fit into the box.

    I am waiting for some spare time to put everything together into one pdf file for easy access and reference by all. I have not forgotten.

    Glancing out the window....

    I'd say there is no rush.

    Six more weeks of winter? We should be so lucky.

    Chicago IMS

    I just got home from the International Motorcycle Show in Chicago. Saw some great looking bikes. Saw some old friends. Checked out some interesting things. Now it is snowing again and the temperature is dropping down to 3 degrees. I'm ready for a trip South to warmer weather. I have a bad case of PMS (Parked motorcycle syndrome). It is even too cold to work of the vintage stuff in the garage. Maybe it is a good time to start planning my summer rides.

    Cold and snowy in Chicago

    Becky, I feel your pain. Here are some pics from the show and a special thanks to Curt for getting the old people home for me. How is your underwear look after letting Martin drive your turbo?

    2008 K1200gs

    Oh........ this is a machine to lust after!

    Anyone notice that all the Beemers at the show were fitted with the low seats? (Probably to avoid scaring away all the <6'0" potential customers.)

    Tell me about it ... I only got one of my two tires on my bike - too cold
    You're welcome to join whatever rides we go on. I am hoping that once the ice is gone we can start riding again

    Beemer01, did you mean the R1200GS? I don't think they make a K1200GS.

    I had my eyes on the GT since last year

    and now I'm torn between two lovers ... Montauk & GT.

    Never too many bikes!

    We had to take apart a bike to make room for the last bike we got. Not if but when we get more bikes, the hot tub will have to be moved to the outside. That will mean going outside in the cold very quickly. It is snowing again as I'm writing this. Maybe we should all move to TX with Voni.

    I'll stick here for now but I have to say this winter has bummed me more than any previous winter. (To be honest, last winter I'd just bought the RT and was back to riding and it was a relatively mild winter, at least in December as I recall riding first couple weeks of that month) Lots of cold and snow this year. More snow due tonight and tomorrow. But . . . . only 5 - 6 weeks more of this and we're back at it! Find my happy place, find my happy place!!!!

    Now I have the F800ST and the RT and the 'ol Piaggio ET4 and they sit in the garage and whenever I'm out there I think they're laughing at me. So i get a real ugly look on my face and threaten not to rotate the battery chargers. They shut right up.
    Geez, I need to ride!
