But I enjoyed every minute of my ride just the same. I've been doing tons of yardwork lately... mowing and leaf detail. After finishing the fourth yard I had to put the tractor back in the garage... the garage with my Camaro and the 3 motorcycles. I debated a while, but I figure I was good these last couple of days and I deserved a ride! I took the 2003 Z1000 for a jaunt. For perhaps the first time ever, I don't think I obeyed a single speed limit... other than when in towns. Most of the roads are rated at 55, but I found it near impossible to hold it under 70. I don't condone this behavior at all, but I know my grin was from ear to ear and I wouldn't have done it had the roads not been clear country ones. It had probably been 3 weeks since my last ride, and I don't know how I'm ever going to make it through the long winter.

BTW, it was cold!

I just run em' over with the mower and blow them to the edge of the property, then I let the wind take care of the rest. Works great!

Well I don't want to give the impression of working too hard, but it did take a lot of time. I mowed with a tractor, and I 'raked' with a lawn sweeper (towed behind the tractor). I also got in some drive time trailoring the tractor from house to house.

Man... riding that bike makes me want to get a new one all the more. Sure I appreciate the bike I have (82 Yamaha) but I just want more power, and the style a newer bike has to offer.

Next Spring. I figure there isn't much sense in rushing the order and all this time of year. Plus, I still have an unemployment issue to deal with...

First off God lives in a tent? Second condone 70? I do 70 in a School Zone when kids are crossing the street but that is only so I don't smear one of the little fouckers across the concrete - my lawyer hates when I do that. Not sure what the point of this thread is, glad to hear you got out in the cage or something - good on ya. I drove my cage to work yesterday and then home. Man that was COOL.. lol.. Yes it usually is cold in November in Michigan. But it was damn cold, it was just cool. Damn cold is like -2. Now see attached for foucking cold:

I bet its a pretty kick ass tent though. One of those fancy pop up in 2 second with 5 rooms in it kinda deals.

It's still in the seventies here every day! I ride my bike to work in the afternoon when I won't be there long. Our parking lot does strange and mysterious things to vehicles parked there. In the afternoon, I can park near the back door. After my 2:00 pm QAA meeting, It's off for a short flight aroung the Big Bend! I'll be thinking of y'all with your electric vests and heated grips when I put my mesh on over my armor for my afternoon ride! (Rub, Rub, Rub it in!!!)

Yes my friend but do you, Mr. 70 AFD, have the distinct pleasure of rolling through "da" hood of Detroit (pronounce it frenchily DE-TWA) and enjoying the upscale picturesque scenery of a pimp beating a ho half to death at 7am in the morning all the while never spilling a drop of his fresh bottle of Thunderbird? Can you say you get to see the breath-taking landscape of burnt down crack houses and abandoned buildings that reek of fresh bum urine and bile filled puke? 70 degrees - PFFFT. Cold weather is great. Where else can you freeze your nuts off in weather colder than a witch's tit? That 70 degree crap isn't all it is cracked up to be.. lol..

I am looking forward to a plane trip when I come down there bee.. Probably like Mid-February or so...
