Has your winter been as much of a non-event as ours? I've used the snowblower once. I've shoveled twice. Absolutely nothing on the ground right now.  :cry:

Yup, but that's supposed to change this week. They're calling for 2-4 inches tonight into tomorrow and then 12-18 Wednesday into Thursday.

Our 5 day looks like this: 51, 39, 64, 38, 35. And because of the rolling temps we arenít even hitting freezing at night.  I will say these mid 30s we get feel absolutely freezing after a 55-60 degree day. 

Iím not a big two wheel kind of guy but I definitely see the attraction to it.  It would be awesome to be out cruising and just feeling it.  I refuse to put any kind of enclosure on my SxS for that reason and give my buddy all types of shit for his full enclosure and aftermarket heater.

Iíve tried two wheels once in my life.  It ended as fast as it began.  If the bike traveled even 10 feet, 9 feet of it was with me no longer on it.  I was way inexperienced and just launched it right out from under me.  Outside of go carts at amusement parks, it was the first thing Iíd ever ridden with a motor.  Probably not the ideal way for me to acclimate myself to two wheels and it ruined two wheels for me.  Iíd try it again but I need to be left to myself in a field to fail and get back up and keep trying.  Iím thinking more dirt bike than motorcycle though.  Eh, whatever.  Haha.  Me and everyone around me is safer if I stick to four wheels.  But yes, I love being in the SxS, ripping through the fast trails in the middle of nowhere.  No windows, no doors, no windshield.  On the flip side, a SxS with that setup is frightening on the street.  Took it for a high speed run down my road once and that open cage just catches the wind and lifts it up making it completely unstable at 75mph.  Once was enough to get that out of my system.

We're supposed to get almost two feet this week after not having much of a winter. I really hope they're wrong like ususal but the math is on their side to be right at this point.

That was almost identical to my first riding experience when my friend tried to teach me to ride his Enduro in his front yard. I came really close to crashing the bike into his dad's brand new Duramax. And you can see that didn't discourage me at all although I have been called crazy a time or two.

Oh yeah.  Iíve done plenty of dumb stuff on four wheels and have never been discouraged.  Probably because Iíve literaly and figuratively have always progressed.  Like I actually physically life forward and get better.  Iím not sure how itís possible to regress from 0 but I feel like I did.  Itís like going from no credit to negative credit and having nothing to show for it. 

Here is our current and future outlook.

Who has not done that one starting out.

My 1st time on a Honda Trail 70 I pulled an ape hanger stunt, and it was not a thing yet in 1977.

It was almost 3 decades later when I did one next.. on purpose that time.

BTW for those not versed in hooligan
