If you need any help with that Gopher, call Bill Murray. Remember Caddyshack?
Thanks for clearing that up for me Chicago,Heard of groundhogs & seen the movie groundhog day what a hoot.LOL - I remember Bill Murray's charater in Caddyshak very well.
To our brother from down under, a gopher is a small rodent that burrows in the ground and destroys lawns.
Actually, what I meant to say was groundhog (kind of the same thing, lives underground). In the USA we have a made up holiday called Groundhog Day on Feb 2nd. Lore states that when a groundhog named Puxatawny Phil (who resides in Puxatawny, Pennsylvania) comes out on the 2nd, if he sees his shadow, then he retreats back into his hole and we have 6 more weeks of winter. If not then an early spring.
Thanks for the replies.
If you like scenic, twisty roads, try So IN, 100% different than So ILL , it may be a 2 day run from Chicago but well worth it , if that's what you like. 66 along the Ohio River is a really good one.37 from the river to Paoli or so is good too, there are many, if that's you like. Check them out, So IN has some good rides if you are close by, or passing through.I live in Lincoln Park, in Chicago and I have not ridden since October, so I know what you mean. Though I do use the winter do work on old bikes for fun, and all that build up form not being able to ride them makes the first run so unbelievable. So I don't mind the "off season". Where do you normally ride? I am just wondering if you have any fun routes I might be able to try. If you want to, you can post them here or on my map, allstate insurance route map, or allstate insurance motorcycle. I am an affiliate of allstate and thus I use their page for my motorcycle stuff. It has a map and you can post routes on their. I check in to see if anyone has posted a ride near where I live. I like riding around Lake Michigan when I can. Hope the spring comes soon too. I will be glad to help you beat the crap out of the Gofer tomorrow if that shadow is there.
We use the word gopher for a bloke here also.Thanks for clearing that up for me Chicago,Heard of groundhogs & seen the movie groundhog day what a hoot.
Here a gopher is a bloke who goes and get things you for ya,he goes there & goes everywhere for what you want.
Ride safe & stay upright
