The bike season ended about six weeks ago for me. I had to ride my bike up from N.J. to Maine then return by car to N.J. Last week was my first week at my new job and it was exceptional. So I have been off my bike for awhile and I am already getting buggy. I figure on hitting the gym like a lot of people just to keep busy.

I had thought about a project bike but by the time I got back to Maine the one I was interested in was gone. So I guess I will have to dig in and wait for four more months before I can get on my bike. .:(

FWIW Lee, it is a bit hot and blowy here today and I can't be bothered going for a ride. Maybe later.

Sorry, I'll pass the salt for those wounds.... :)

You just need to get some indoorsy passtimes. Me - I bottled 10 gallons of beer yesterday, got some model engineering projects, plus rebuilding a small lathe going on - that plus performance projects on my bike. That lot and listen to some fine tunes, do a little experimental cooking, see if I can't get the hang of making bread - simple stuff like that - the time flies by.

It'll be spring afore ya know it!

And when you can't stand it any more, imbibe the beers you made! :D

4" of the pearly powder since this morning. Plows out clearing the highways. 2 bikes under covers looking like moguls on a ski slope. 2 bikes in the shed, shivering. Cabin fever? [email protected] Straight!

49 degrees today the roads were wet and I would have taken the bike out , but I did not get home until 9pm. I had to attend a late meeting. Watch I will be home early tommorrow and it will be freaking cold.

Don't feel bad Lee, (we) meaning us fellows in Central/NW NM are already under about 12 inches of snow today. I have an 11,000 ft mountain to my back yard by about 3 miles and I can't see it at all.

Cheers

25C here on sat, so I got up and went for a 500mile drive around the mountains. Up twisty mountain rouds, down twisty mountain roads, through beech forests (via more twisty roads), along side of twisty rivers into rainforest and back through more twisty mountain roads.

Its a hard life, but someones got to do it :)
