Don't you find your chaps get caught in your chain though?

When it gets cold here, we get to -40 degrees. You'd hafta have one helluva big fairing to keep warm then!

I feel for you Dave. It must have been the day to put the bikes away! I put mine into storage for the winter yesterday too. Rode it there, all the while getting hit in the face with ice/snow pellets! At least she's indoors, and warm, till I see her again in April!

After Monday & Tuesday even the rest of the week says W T F

BTW, In "Dog Beers", I've only had "2"!

My luck too if it does in fact happen over the weekend. Monday is looking the best so far. Hooky? I am ready willing and able to go over the weekend or whenever. Would love to go for a ride . Give me a shout if you take em off the lifts Dave. That goes out to Adriano and Stevokm and Deep as well.

Still wiping the tear from my eye after reading 10-64's posts lol. NOT.
Sorry David couldn't resist. Maybe you could rent the Rebel from Dave for a day?
