a perfect day

Just finished an exceptionally good day. After 2 year's of owning a sled and not having enough snow, I went sledding today. I'd forgotten how much fun it is.

Then to finish the day off, I FINISHED A DEAL ON A NEW BIKE.
I'm getting a 2000 CBR1100xx. 6200 k's extended warrenty. I get to pick up bike next week after my cheque clears Honda Finance (to take care of previous owner's loan). I've already taken home the Shoei helmet... complete w/ Chatterbox, and a Teknic textile jacket.

The only problem is I'll have to sell the sled to pay for the bike.

The older I get,
The better I was.

congrats, soon as spring is here/there, you won't regret it.

Repeal helmet laws, they only protect people we most likely don't need in the gene pool any way!

apparently spring has been cancelled.

I was going to pick up bike in Calgary this weekend but we got a fu#*n blizzard, and the temp.has dropped.
I swear I'm gonna pick up that bike this week even if I have to trailer it.

I feel your pain even though I don't have a snow problem right now. Grew up with snow though and know how you feel waiting for the riding weather.

May the thaw come fast, complete, and lasting. Who ever said patience is a virtue was an asshole.

Details! More details please. Especially the helmets. That is if you are willing to ship. My days of buying a sled and rolling the dice hoping for a snowy winter are over however.

I'll put a proper add in the classifieds when I know what exactly I'm keeping.


Meanwhile everybody: THINK SPRING
