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!:rolleyes:)...


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.:)

Sportster was supposed to be an 883 bored out to 1200 but wasn't......so I returned it lol.

I looked for more HD's for the longest time, I was set on having one, but didn't wanna pay 15,000 for an 04 wide glide with 22,000 miles, or an 07 Nightster with 14,000 miles for 7,300... when I can get an 09 1100 Star with 0 miles for 7,000...(I bought my 1100 for 5500 with barely 15,000)..What got me set on getting one was not only the price, but it seemed to ride ALOT better then my Sportster(Yeah i know completely different styles but still).
