Brrrr... Now what?

Pull up a couch. It's cool in the Lounge. Just remember to be a good neighbor.

Did a Polar Bear Club ride today from Warrensburg MO to RC's Fried Chicken in Martin City MO. When we got there the place was slammed with other Polar Bears (motorcyclists) due to the warm weather. Me and my friend Ken who rides a Goldwing signed the book then went down the street to Jess and Jim's Steak house, there were only a few people there. I had a prime steakburger which was huge, if I had known I wouldn't have ordered fries to go with it.

Rare for me to do an all asphalt ride, but a ride is a ride.

I'm going stir crazy! Got out and got a little exercise in and did some trail trimming to pass the time.

With riding limited to scraping off a 1/4" of melt and hitting ice and crashing, then crashing in the next corner, then repeating this it was time to update the forks and shock on the '19 500 EXC-F with this & wait for warmer weather:

It made a huge difference in handling, suppleness and the ability to have fine tuning on both forks for both compression and rebound. The shock was upgraded at the same time. A new bike!
