Not a happy sight!

Well, this is not too encouraging. Ice everywhere!   Tomorrow the dealer picks up the V-Strom for a recall.  Apparently a small number of them have had problems with the stator overheating and burning out. Suzuki is replacing them all. Not that I'm going to be riding much for a while anyway! And I get a free oil change too.    Only a few weeks 'till spring!!!!  
 
 
On a positive note, it IS beautiful around here. 
 
Lord, you done good!

At least SOMEBODY is riding!

A friend of mine just sent me a couple of pics of Devils Tower. 

Nice DR650 and after market gas tank!

Suspended Animation

Well, it's done. I wimped out and put the horse away today.
 
Washed it thoroughly, cleaned the chain with kerosene and
lubed it, changed the oil and filter. Put Stabil in the gas tank
and filled it up. Took one last ride and put the blanket on.
 
I'll be at the monastery for the next few weeks, cut off
from the world, to repent of the sin of not riding all winter...
 
Maybe I'll get the sleeping bag out and sleep next to it.....
