Welcome James from Buffalo, from where ever i may be

Yep, we know the feeling, but you can always put the chains on.

This was Valentine's day this year, my first ride of the season (ok, I made it to the end of the driveway but the bike was running!)...


And this was the morning of April 16th, annual Spring Flood Run...


We know how you feel. So welcome, ride when you can, and enjoy every minute of it.
