Default It's 2019

There hasn't been a post on this forum since March 2018. So I thought I'd make one.

It's going to be in the 60's for the next few days. So I think I'll go riding Saturday, upper 60's. Sunday it will be in the mid 70's but windy. In February we generally get some decent riding days. I hope it holds true this year. It's been a cold windy winter this year on the high plains of Texas with a lot of sand storms. I hope the area everyone else lives in has been better than mine.

Riding: 2011 XC
Sold: 2003 Vegas
Totaled: 2003 TC, But it's still on the road.
Sold: 2004 TC
This is Just the list of Victory's. I have also rode and owned Honda's, Kawasaki's, Suzuki's, Harley's. Some old European bike. Can't remember the name. It was a 3 speed and I started riding on a 50cc bike that Sears sold. Some time around 1967. I have had my motorcycle license since 1969.

It can get that cold here, but it's very unusual Thank God.

You guys make it easier for me to put up with the Looney Tunes politics and rain here, in exchange for some very moderate temps the year around.

We've been in 60's all week plus today and tomorrow but then a cold wet spell is coming through over the weekend.

I've been taking advantage of the good weather by doing a long-needed garage spring cleaning so I can fit my Mustang in there with its American Victory brothers. Should be done today.

Rain Starts in a couple hours here in Huntington Beach, CA and will lead into a very wet weekend. But it will not be in subzero temperatures.........

Current Stable: 2014 XC, 2004 VStar 1100, PCX 150, 125 SYM Havana.

Born in the deepest jungles of India, I was raised by a friendly bear, until I was kidnapped by a pack of unruly baboons who taught me the finer points of swing jazz, all the while being stalked by an incompetent python and an evil but mis-understood tiger... Ummm, wait a minute, that's the Jungle book, no I was raised just outside of St. Louis, But...in the deepest jungles of a middle class neighborhood .

You must have one of them fancy luxury cars to have A/C in the trunk!

J/K. My project is done. All 3 now fit in the barn/garage. I think I should start calling it a barn because I have a mini ranch out here in NorAZ. I've got animals I tend to, feed, water, and clean up after. The land constantly needs tending. Instead of tractors and combine's I have motorcycles, a muscle car, and a truck. I even have a metal sign that says Rancho Boomer. I never figured I'd end up being a rancher.

It's moving this way and should start raining sometime around 5pm if it stays on track. Never know out here. One time they predict 100% rain all day and we get just enough to get the cars dirty. Another time they might say 20% chance and we get a gully washer.
