    Holiday Season Begins - First Snow Ride 2016

    First ride in the snow of 2016. Hey, better than sitting on the couch poking my eyes out eh? I got a late start as I broke one of my toofers and had to go to the dental mechanic for repairs. Just another burrfday gift to myself.


    Carry on!

    Hope it wasn't an apple or candy that caused the broken tooth...

    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Nope, it was diet pepsi. Took a swig, answered the phone at work (which I do occasionally) and boom, it fell out onto my desk. Didn't even have any hammers around to blame it on. Repair toof feels funny now. I'll get over it by tonight when we go out to Texas Roadhouse...for salad...not! I'm a barbarian, I eat meat, except for fish and those other slimy things which contain sand. Yuck!

    Admiral's videos always bring a smile to my face.
    Looks like a lot more fun than cleaning out the garage.

    Hope you're not taking the bikes or convertible down by me to eat. Should be in a 4x with this freezing rain and snow/slush on the roads. Safe drive.

    That looks like great fun and I can't wait to try that with my TW too.
    Where I live the trick is to get out on the road before they start salting all the roads.

    Riding in virgin snow is fun and like you mention, got to get out there before the sanding trucks and other vehicles pack down the snow into ice.

    Ice is not nice.
    Now with a little virgin snow a fellow can really go!


    Now I'm not sure whether the Duro or the Cerros might be better in light snow. Admiral's hill climb was steep and sandy, mine had a firmer base. Of course snow conditions vary tremendously with temps and moisture. Maybe I gotta make it up to Admiral's some time for a side-by-side traction test.

    Yeah, the hill was kind of steep for having snow on it. It was a bit ambitious to think I'd make it up without traction devices. Because it was so slippery out on the roads, I stood up most of the time like I would if riding through mud or sand. One has to become comfortable standing but it is the best way. We'll see what happens when I get the TWsnowmobile fabricated.
