    +++1 on that. I'm getting my 76 r90/6 ready tonight for some weekend riding and then maybe keep riding as Spring unwinds!

    Airheads Forever

    Just did a spline lube on the R100RS Motorsport yesterday, and am waiting for a set of Spiegler SS brakelines to replace the ORIGINAL (!) ones -- (Just got the bike.)

    Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait. . .

    Plan to do the same tomorrow with my R100RS. Less snows together but still a blast.

    I'm gonna try something "new". My R80ST is on the charger and ready to go, but the ride this summer is going to be the "new" (to me) R50/2. And it's lookin' good for next week in Minnesota!

    I went for about a 200 mile ride a couple of days ago on my R1100RSL, and it never ceases to amaze me how after you have been off your bike for awhile they always impress you all over again! When I got back I thought to myself "Damn what a fine machine!"

    The six foot high snowbank blocking my bike shed has melted down to about to about four and a half feet. Tomorrow, I'm heading out with a shovel to help out Mother Nature.
    By next weekend, I too should be in the wind!

    We received a bit under 1,5m (approx 4.5ft). but the plow piles it up high.
    We usually get a fair bit more. It has been an easy winter.
    I'm in the foot hills of the Laurentians and we are a fair bit north of TO. It's not a good comparison.
    Ask your family near Toronto how much snow they need to get before calling out the army to help!

    No Snows together

    But, I love my RS. The only thing getting old, is us.

    And what is so wrong about getting old together. Been doing the spring thing with my R80 since our first spring in 1989... Unless we can count the spring of 1988 when I brought her home.

    Nothing is wrong with it.

    I'm happy for you and your bike.
    When I brought my first R100rs home in 1980, it looked just like new and before it burned in a fire in 2010, it looked just like new,but those 30 years really took a toll on my looks,etc. I was just saying these ole airheads never get old; they just eventually get new riders.

    Couldn't agree more. I'm just holding mine for the next rider and feel a certain obligation to care for it while I have it. They're not making any more of them...

    My Dad has a snowblower for his tractor power take-off that takes an 8 foot cut ! No army required, but I fear Ontario will never live that story down with the army !!!
