  Bought a service manual!   Can't get it out of the pole barn with all the snow and ice accumulated!!!   Don't want to try out the traction control that bad! HA

How did the service manual get stuck in the pole barn?  :)
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

Guess it didn't mind the cold!  LOL   Can't wait to dig in a little deeper....always had one with the Vmax and it came in handy many times.  At this rate it will be many months for me to get the bike out....while not as much snow as NE it is pretty solid ice now all the way from the house to the PB......at least a foot or more solid....then when it melts it will be so freakn wet....good thing for traction control! LOL

And again, I thank Heaven above for allowing me to be born, and to live in Texas.  Currently 73, and not a cloud in the sky.   Good luck with the ice...  tomp

While I wasn't blessed enough to be born in Texas, by the Grace of God, I was given enough sense to move out of Pennsylvania to Phoenix.  ;D       Currently 78 without a cloud in sight.....

Yeah, but like they say, "It's a dry heat, though.", unlike the HIGH HUMIDITY heat, here in the Texas coast area.  Can literally keep you from drawing a decent breath while riding.  Painful!  Not that much riding done here or in AZ during the summer's heat.

I must be a freak. No, I'm SURE I'm a freak. I like it HOT. I would much rather ride in 110+ degree than freeze my butt off at 50 degrees. At night, if it's 60 degrees, I am sure to have my Gerbings electric jacket on and plugged in. I have left Phoenix dozens  of times after work at 3:00 pm when the temp was over 110 and rode to Vegas or Los Angeles. Hot is good.

Man after my on heart. I despise the cold.

I couldn't tell you. My drinking got away from me a LONG time ago so I had to quit. You know the guy that turns in to a real  :censored: when he drinks? That's me. If you think I'm bad now, add alcohol and see what happens..... :hitfan:

That's tough.  I get funny, then maudlin, and the second part really brings me down, so I have really cut back, too.  Glad you got a handle on it.  Not always the easiest of things to do.   Riding is so much more enjoyable than the buzz of booze.   I would love to ride every day, more than just to work n back....tp

It's a bunch easier to afford a bike and the associated goodies that go with it now. I also get to actually leave town. I left on far too many 3 or 4 day trips back in the 80's and never made it to the city limit. Too many bars between the house and the outskirts....     ::)

Hey guys, hope all is good!

I just finished putting the wheels back on my bike. I now have a brand new set of PR4-GT!!!!!!  Hopefully I can go for a ride around the lake tomorrow. Last time I did this ride, I used my chin to stop a bee. Went to the ER on Christmas day, and now the hospital bills are stopping my heart!
