Time to go hibernate.
« on: December 09, 2009, 02:41:48 AM »
  Winter really is jumping on us here in Central Wisconsin tonihgt.  Suppose to be blizzard like conditions from now until late evening tomorrow.  So it's time to curl up with the CMW catalog and various other bike books and dream about the spring.  Will.

They are salting the roads in Milwaukee, so I will pull the battery and finish winterizing this weekend. I got one decent December ride in.

Planned winter projects:
* Remove starter
* New tires
* New front brakes

We just had a warm front blow in last night, and it's  sunny and 57 degrees today!

  Already pickled the five in the corral.  Already lining up parts for projects.  New rear tail light..went to a 50's style.  Waiting on the new seat cover to arrive.. redone in dark brown leather.  May install a trials handle bar in black.  Clutch pad w/bearings, rubberheaded primary adjustment bolt.  Possibly new clutch kit w/heavy springs.  And I know wifeys' bike needs a couple things. 

  Currently we have about 10-12"on the level with up to 3 foot drifts.  Already ran the snowblower once and will probably end up doing the same by night fall.  Don't have to be at work until 4pm tomorrow luckily.  Will.

  Thanks buddy, rub it in.  Maybe if I would have started persuing a CJ750 earlier I could be riding it right now.  No on second thought it's just to vile out there right now.  Home made chili and a shot of fine Irish whiskey and hibernation sound better.  See you later...Will.

we had to batten down the hatches this morning for a tornado watch, right now is sunny and 70's and tomorrow a high in the 40's. what a roller coaster. should make for an interesting ride to work and back tomorrow. it gets a little nipply on a bike at 65 with those temps. oh well, that's what jack daniels is for; to thaw out

  Tonight it's suppose to dip to -20.  Don't think it would be wise to even try anything on a bike at that temp.  Will.

Long time ago,  me and a buddy were in bear territory hunting dear., we were getting a little uneasy..... we were walking through high brush ( bears love to sleep and hide in it ) time to lock and load......next thing I know my buddy is jumping around ,just yelling and kicking up dirt, marking trees like a male dog........I say "hey man!, ..just what are you doing?".....
He says " Well , I'm not sure what time of year is bear mating season is,so if any bears are watching they will know I'm a man!"
