It snowed the next day and the roads haven't been good for motorcycling ever since. Boy, was he lucky or what? Biker Bill is one unhappy motorcyclist at the moment. He has his new toy and can't get it out of the driveway, lol.
He bought it on the 4th and the above picture was taken on the 7th. As you can see, there is snow on the ground in the above picture. The day was warm enough for him to pull it out and start it up. It was his birthday, after all, and he just had to do something with his present. He also cleaned it up and polished it. I tease him, because now he has chrome. His Nighthawk has no chrome and he always said "I don't need no stink'n chrome."
This is one pretty loud bike. Now when both our bikes are running, his drowns out mine. This bike came with a Mustang seat, Vance & Hines pipes and some very nice leather bags. His Nighthawk is much quieter and my Yamaha V-Star 650 would drown it out. He always hated that. He did buy and install Khrome Werks Baffles for the Intruder to try and quiet it down. That didn't work too well, lol.
He had both our bikes running. With all the cold weather and not being able to get out on the road, we wanted to check the batteries. Mine started right up, his didn't, lol!!! Anyway, while mine was running he shut his off. I was ghastly astounded and dismayed :( Once his was off mine sounded like a lawn mower!?!?!?!?
Well, that was on the 7th and now it's the 17th. The above shot is of our driveway and, sadly, we still are not able to get out and ride.
This shot is to the right of our driveway. Pretty dismal for motorcycling, don't you agree? It has been so cold that the snow just cannot melt. We are expected to get more snow this weekend. It doesn't sound like much is expected to fall, but it's going to be enough to keep the roads dangerous for a motorcycle.
There's always the bright side, Pikes Peak is gorgeous with all that snow on it!!! I took that picture today.
Wishing you winter adventures in your part of the world,
Biker Betty :)
