Is that a white sheepskin or some lady's wedding dress?   Very WHITE!!!
.  Kinda like me ::)
Glad I had it, it went well with the white stuff I was a riding in. Drove in a snow shower for twenty minutes in the higher elevations. That white thing kept the boys warm when the temp dropped to 28*

Cold weather hit here too.  Gonna be in the 80's for the new couple of weeks.  Heard that sheep skin pads make a huge difference in long distance riding.  Stay warm.  tp

Six hrs in the saddle today and it didn't feel like I was sitting against the pan for the ride.  So far the best $40.00 I've spent on a seat. Spent $500.00 plus on the last one and it wasn't  as comfortable as this combo  :finger_fing11:

He bought a sheep and sent it to the butcher's for lamb shanks and mutton steaks.  The cover was a freebe.  Seriously, I was wondering the same thing...tp

Your sales tax is 5%, Ours in Houston, Tx area is 8.25%.  I have an Ikea in the city and will check there.  Thanks, tomp

That Tax is a Federal Tax GST (goods and service tax ),  Alberta doesn't have a sales tax. Most of the provinces up here do have sales tax, so residents  have to pay the 5% plus whatever their provincial sales tax is.  GST  is charged after sales Tax so they actually Tax the Tax from what I've heard but I haven't looked into this statement.

This is Rocky Mountain National Park last Monday.  Cold, really windy, and snow blowing across the road just a little way up the hill.  Trail Ridge Road is closed again.  May have been the last trip up this year.

On Tuesday, I ordered a Cee Baileys euro sport windshield I  dark tint. Yesterday I received a email showing a delivery date for the 23rd.  Much faster than I anticipated.  Looking forward to trying a shorter windshield

 Let me know what you think of the smaller shield.  I had the large shields and really like the Cee Bailey Ultra Domed Tour version.  I just got the medium shields sent to me and put on the med CB.  I went out yesterday for about 10 miles.....really rough out with the wind gusts....pushed me around and actually had a tree down on my 1st part of my ride....so,  not much to report. 
   On a note to keep on topic,  does putting non ethanol gas in count?  LOL  I do have oil and filter to do a change,  will do that next week.
