Speaking of "vintage"...

I was in a boot shop the other day; I happened to be wearing an old pair of Vasque hikers I bought while I was in college - they're well worn and repaired in a number of places, but they still work and I still wear them on occasion.  Anyway, one of the clerks walked by me and said, "Hey man, nice vintage Vasques!"  I got to go all old man on his ass - "These aren't vintage!  I bought them myself when I was in school!  Who're you calling vintage?!?" etc.  It was pretty funny.

Hijack over.  Umm, excuse me for a sec...  Hey you kids, get off my lawn!!!

I had my first bike when I was 13, a 1978 Kawi KE125.  LOTS of great memories made on that bike.  I had a single Polaroid of it at one point but I don't know what ever happened to it, but this is exactly what it looked like.



As far as going down in the snow, I would have gotten up and danced a jig, but I don't trust that Amal carb so I was quick to stand it back up on 2 wheels.  :)
