Winter's last stand

Just when I thought it was over, they pulled me back in. That's right we have a foot of snow on the way, that shit will kill the next couple of weeks for riding. Stay tuned reports to follow back to the darn snowman

!'m 14 weeks now with no riding. I've hit ice years ago on my K100RT and won't ride if it is below freezing. I have Gerbings goods to keep me warm, but that doesn't cure black ice.

Check out the forecast for Denver over the next few days. If this is global warming, I can deal.
Sorry guys, everything is upside down when it's 72*F here in February.

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.

Hey Greg, 12 inches of snow here so far, and it's still coming. Guess we won't be doing lunch on Mulberry Street today. I went into work, and it was a challenge even with a 4 wheel drive Jeep. When I get home, I'll light the fireplace, and fire up the snowblower. Pictures to follow. Come on guys let's see some pictures of this storm.
