I cleaned house, put away the Christmas stuff, went for a walk, renewed my car insurance and put my Image in on a thread for which I shall probably be blasted for any minute. :laughing:

Went with the wife today to the local Yamaha dealer, where she test-rode a 2013 XT250. She's recently picked up quite an interest in off-pavement riding. We have the Jersey pine barrens near us, with miles and miles of dirt and sand roads. Now she's trying to figure out if she wants to buy new, or try to find a used XT250 or XT225. And I have to find something too, so I can ride with her.

We're watching "Tombstone" as sort of a 'preparation' for next summer, since we're planning a motorcycle trip there. Should be a lot of fun.

I was there in 03 (car) a lot to see. went into some joint didn't know what to order so I ordered some king of hamburger, it was so dark in there I could hardly see, it looked done But, when I bite into it, it was red inside, I didn't eat it. motel, I checked out the room it was ok But, I didn't check the shower, that night when I came back to go to bed & take a shower it was a stand up shower, I couldn't even bend over. water hit my chest & turn around hit my shoulder.
a lot of MC there during the day, sun down it was kind of like a ghost town?? enjoyed ok carol, court house & boot hill.

Thanks for the heads up about the King Burger, LoL!

We wont be staying right in town, we're planning on renting a room in nearby Sierra Vista and day-trip into Tombstone. That, or since we'll have all our camping gear with us anyway we might just put in at Padagonia and, again, daytrip into Tombstone.

Definitely going to check out the OK Corral and Boot Hill, Bird Cage too and whatever else we can find to do. Gonna spend a couple days at least.

We helped orchestrate a fund raiser today, it went well and though we're both tired we're in good spirits.

A rider friend of ours was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer just before Christmas, they gave him six months tops and he and his wife decided they wanted to go to Disneyland sometime before he got too sick to go. Thus was born the 'Lonnie's Disney Dream' fundraising effort, which culminated tonight in an evening of potluck dinners, a raffle, and two local comedians. Dozens of local businesses donated more than $5,000 worth of goods and services to be raffled, everything from gift certificates for massages, hair cuts, tanning and oil changes to scented candles, crocheted and knitted craft items and even a couple solar powered charging packs like the ones GoalZero makes. Lots of friends turned out and opened their hearts and wallets, and I'm happy to say Lonnie and Linda will be able to do Disneyland in style. It's just a shame they wont be able to go by bike for this last road trip.

Enjoy your time while you've got it.

I went to work and then after work came home and shoveled snow.

My neighbours think I'm nuts because I was enjoying myself. :)

Sorry, blues, but if you're enjoying snow shoveling, I think you're nuts, too!! :shock:

My wife bought us a snow blower in 2010. Was never used much until this winter, but this year it's been worth every penny paid for it.

It was actually yesterday, but...

Made an appointment with my service shop to get a new rear tire put on PowerSlave. Really probably should have done this last season, but one thing drives out another as they say. Anyway, I'm replacing with the same tire that's already on there, an Avon Cobra 140/90B16. Right around $250 for the tire and installation, at the same shop that did our chains and sprockets last year.
