Hopefully now you understand why the DR doesn't let you out.

Nice vid. But I will take my SOCAL winters of 40 F and call it good.

Hey Mountain Max, you are one dedicated biker, you crazy SOB. Way to go. I don't have the cajones to even sit on my bike when it gets that cold.

I kept waiting for the wheely pass but it didn't happen.

Were you running straight knobbies out there?

Hey guys, yeah, my yamaha snowmobile gloves were too big to let me get my fingers in there to turn the key on. I tried to start it by foot when I remembered hey, i got a magic button here somewhere and used it. I am dedicated, watching too much supercross lately and had to pay homage to my hero Chad Reid (note the #22 on my numberplates), and went out for two rides, saturday and again sunday. Traction wasn't the best and if you notice in the last few seconds i tried to pull a few wheelies but she wouldn't come up more then a few inches, way too little traction using 1/2 wore out street legal dual purpose tire. Glad you guys enjoyed it, I had a blast, will do for me now until may when i can get out on the roads a bit and ride again, going back and forthe to work when it's only 1-2 degrees above freezing waiting for june and warmer weather.
