    I like how there is a covering over downtown Vegas....like, 'what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas'....even if you try to take a picture of it.

    The only thing that doesn't stay in Vegas is MC and his 'hammer' of a klunker bike!:bigsmile:

    Inversion was low, as it wasn't cold the last few weeks. There are times its masked to where it's all hidden from view. That dark cloud of guilt.... hehehe

    Yeah, low inversion here in the valley as well. Rain today and tomorrow. Sunday cloudy, and then we break free into a sunny week with highs in the 70's by Friday....:cool2:

    Yup, desert sometimes freezes, but spring starts soon. Glad to hear warmer days are ahead.

    Thats just so cool to be able to get out in all that open space. Just a man and his bike,blue skys,a cactus here and there.With the sound of nothing,but tires crunchy on rubble.

    Thanks Funkme.

    Trail test number two went much better than last Sundays ride. Getting a little confidence in the bike. Not fearless on it yet, but getting there.

    Chain didn't come off once. No whacking the knee to into the SR neck...

    Hit the mountain just before sun up. Had about 30 minutes in when it crested the top.

    I could never leave the mountains. I need that looming feeling of smallness to keep my ego in perspective 0_o

    In all seriousness, I grew up in the west and prefer the desert Now I well past my 30s

    Yea, I mostly miss the Appalachian/Smokys region. Mountains are awesome, regardless of where they are.

    Okay so now I'm back at where it is warm.

    With backdrops like this, I think I'd have to try to take a bad picture...

    The bike's almost completed I just need to figure out what I'm going to do with the paint.

    Had a good time today wore my snowsuit and coat. They were soaked, I wasnt.

    Save that last pic and submit to @Rat Rod .....month of Dec or Jan....calendar....:nod:

    We used to run the directional tires (before there were fr and rear specific patterns) in reverse in the rear, figured those peaks and chevrons would dig in better....

    I saw "digger", and thought it was going to be a super-low, raked-out chopper. Imagine my surprise... following.

    Thanks, I agree. If we do a photo contest this year I have a few entries.

    On these small block 8s, it don't know if they would effect traction different as the knobbies are in rows seem to effect traction. They didnt throw tons of water like I thought they were going to. Wondering if that was an expected result.

    Had the action cam out. Apparently, it can't handle the cold ... charged to dead in 60 seconds...


    Started picking up speed about the time it died... maybe next time.

    I found a badge that fits.

    Badge and the forks don't match well.

    Definitely need to do something about that.

    Mmm, badge is ok but that fork is too shiney new looking. Maybe with the gloss knocked off and some faux crust.

    Wonderful pics and a great bike. Do you do anything special to prevent the inevitable tire punctures in desert riding?
