It was a long, cold winter up here, and my bike is ready finally. It was so cold for so long I had to resort to 'Retail Therapy' in order to get through the winter. The last ones are of me this past weekend, and 'yes', it hurt :p

Heres a list of the things I did, for those of you that care. Regina chain, Pro Taper Countour bars, ASV levers, RG3 triple clamps, Starcross MS3 tires, Spider grips, Rooster radiator guards, Suspension revalve and new springs by MX Tech East, DRD full exhaust, Case saver (by me), Graphics, and Moose seat. Oh yea and a pair of Sidi Crossfires.

Everytime the doorbell rings my wife just looks at me and says 'That better not be the F:censored: ing UPS man.' :ride: :p :prof:

I hope next winter is shorter and milder. If not can I stay with one of you.:applause:

I am sooo happy with the way it turned out, I wouldn't change a thing.:p

Thanks for all your suggestions.:eek:

Thanks Guys,

450GN I'm in Macomb. The pictures are from Freelin this past Sunday. I'm not sure where we are going this weekend. My buddy wants to go to Big Air, but I'm not sure I wanna drop 150 bucks for fuel and spend 6.5 hours driving.

Where are you at?

Woah, I was at Freelin this Sunday, sweet track, too bad it's soo far into the middle of no where, I was afraid to bend over, they speak a whole other language that far off the beaten path, thats for sure!

Yea, that last picture is great for explaining to someone what 'Casing' is. My wife looked at it and then said "Oh, so thats what you mean when you say you 'cased' it?". She has heard me and my friends say it a million times.

I guess a picture is worth a thousand words.

Yeah gas prices tend to influence the decisions nowadays. I'll be at BigAir on Sunday if you do travel.
