Man what a great ride! Thanks to Poacher Bob and VWK75s I have a new appreciation for winter sports!

Check out some pix and videos at https://goo.gl/photos/9aBRUMS48dQYn6sZ7 .

The day started out at 8F and required the assistance of a propane heater to get the rig to catch (who's the bright guy that kept the 20-50 in the crankcase :oops: ...Doh!)

Had a great ride through some dirt roads, closed roads, crazy snowy hill roads........ :shock: Imageand still managed to find a nice brown ale :beerchug: and a hot sandwich at lunch.

As Bob sumarized above, bunch of nice roads and loads of fun! Can't wait to do it again sometime.

Thanks again to All!

I run the same oil year round and I have no garage. Never a problem, Mr. Dirty. But I'm sure it appreciated the heat.

Who is that on the other camo Gear-Up?

His name is Mark. He's likes a good IPA not pina coladas or getting caught in the rain.

Hmmmm, perhaps the battery is getting tired then.

Not that old though..5-6yrs...yeah, I guess it's expected.

Thx.
