    I was working in the garage last night - rolled the bike outside to have room. Had to take a half hour ride just to get it back in the shed. It was a beautiful night in the OK panhandle, 50+ degrees and the winds were light.

    'bout 100 miles on the bike this weekend, that was fun. Had a really strange problem with the bike for about the last 20 or so. NOT fun lol. No clue what was wrong, bike was acting "cold," wouldn't stay running without the choke out about 1/2 way, so it was like driving with the throttle locked in place. SUCKED!

Gotta get the Indian running, the brother inlaw is coming up from Dallas next month and wants to ride with us! Indian = Cold-Natured Iron Horse!!! Must be a fuel problem from sitting all winter?????

    Saturday I took a short ride and ended up out by Buckley, WA and this is what I saw. A guy is in the process of making this beautiful carving. This is still in progress, but I think it's beautiful and thought  would share.

    This is my first time uploading pictures here, so let's hope it works.

    It finally stopped raining here in central CA, yesterday was in the 60's, got to ride to work for the first time in weeks! Went out for a putt at lunch & then took the long way home. More rain this week, I know it's not as bad as the snow in the rest of the country, but it's still a pain in the ass. Looking forward to spring & lots 'o riding!

    Started cleaning the garage today and had to move the bike, so down the road we went. First ride of the season!!! Woo Hoo!!! I had a trooper on my butt for the last 5 miles. I was waiting for the lights to go on, but he kept on going when I pulled off the main road. Thank you!!
