    Angry Riding as in Plowing!

    Oh Yeah! I'm riding...all TOO often on the ATV with snow plow. Over 40 inches in Central Illinois so far this winter...about 25+ inches over average. 3 inches Sunday and another 4 inches today. Usually one tank or less of fuel for winter (3 gal.), over 9 gallons so far this winter.

    The K12RS and R12GSA are plugged in and ready to fire any time...come on spring!!!

    No riding here in SE PA.



    A little more snow overnight, but looks like we're going to get a bit of a (rainy) warming spell. Maybe next week.

    We have a warm spell forecast for the rest of the week, so with a little luck (after it stops snowing today) things will begin to clear enough to get riding!

    Of course the potholes here in NY are blue ribbon winners right now so be safe out there!

    They're importing the potholes from NJ.. we seem to have more potholes than pavement in lots of spots.

    My bike is on the charger - but I'm hoping to get it on the road again later this week - it's been 3 weeks and that's WAY too long.

    I used to paint faces (or re-paint, depending on how shot up they got) on Huey's and Cobra's over in Vietnam with the 101 AB out of Phubai in the early 70's.....brings back memories.....

    we might be having a warm spell

    but I'm not sure that i could get a bike out of my driveway, considering the amount of ice that is built up.

    Sdpc-
    Looks like you're nearby, if that warm up does get here maybe we can get out for a coffee run somewhere. It's been so long I'm going to have to read the manual again before I fire it up!

    Still riding in Northern Virginia

    I've been riding all winter except in the snow or on ice. I have to say that it was very strange to ride around the piles of snow that lined the streets. On the coldest day that I've ridden this winter (ever), the temp was 14.5?F. I'm glad we don't have too many days like that around here.

    Got to 48F today.. got for the time in February. Still a lot of crap on the roads (salty crap) and a huge number of monster potholes, but beat sitting in front of the computer for a few hours.

    Had our F800GTs out for a tank run last weekend- club ride to eat nearby.

    But I've been spending more time riding the new lawn tractor (a JD with 4 wheel steering that replaced an antique Sears special) towing a trailer to haul tree debris from our ice storms.
    The chain saw has been getting a good workout and the SO informs me that she wants to grow shiitake mushrooms on the oak so the drills will also get some use..

    This week we've got days in the 60s- very nice indeed so will do some riding this weekend too
