Santa bought me lots of "good stiff" for christmas. Now I'm freezing my butt off in sub 0 (Centigrade that would be) temperatures trying to get my ride "ridable" again since stripping it of stock triple clamps etc and fitting my goodies. However its so bloody cold I wont be able to ride for at least 3 months the way things are going. Somebody cheer me up ! Anybody who mentions California or Mojave will be shot!

Oh yeah, I'm pretty bored right now so I thought I'd start a new thread !!

:D Three Month's, man suddenly rainy old England doesn't seem so bad! :)
We normally try to get out for a snow ride...once a year, not for three months of it, the only hting we have given up on is riding when the ground is sooo hard, when you hit it, sparks fly LOL
That hurts when you fall off,
Sympathies Missile, sympathies

Hey, you're not alone... it's -15C here tonight and to make it worse, the sun is setting by 4:30. It might be 4 months before I can get my WR back into the mountains again. :) I live my winter month dirt-life vicariously through the friendly dudes on Thumpertalk.

I know you don't want to hear it, but..... I had an incredible day of riding here in Albuquerque. Perfect, sunny, hill climbing, dirt roosting day. Met some new riding buddies. At least you all might have a white Xmas.

'00 in Calgary - you should add a sled to that toy-filled signature of yours. That way you can look forward to winter and four months of riding. If for some strange reason you don't like the idea of riding a snowmobile, check out the Snow Hawk at www.adbovin.com or do a search on "AD Bovin Snow Hawk". It's about as close as you can get to a dirt bike for the snow. I don't think you could hit the mountain powder fields with it, but it should be a blast on the trail or packed powder.

Missile I really,really hope that you're talking about a "good stiff" drink or some such. I'd hate to think what other "good stiff" thing Santa might give you! :D Have a merry Christmas anyways - and try to keep your butt warm - no matter what Santa tries to give you! :D

Sorry - I just couldn't resist! :D :D :) :D P.Z.
