Very nice jarhead. I really like that look. As for riding today, more power to you. Too cold for me. Merry Christmas to everyone here.

Its cold here in Arkansas too, high today is supposed to be 39 but I don't think it will make it. After Christmas dinner and opening gifts and stuff my sons and I pulled a few of the old bikes out of the shop, fired them up, and went for a ride while the women were washing dishes and doing stuff that women do.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Tim
I grew up in Waukesha County, went to high school at Marquette in Milwaukee and then moved north. I graduated from UW Superior, got a job in Duluth, and lived in Superior until I got transferred down here in 1984. Both the boys in the pictures were born in Superior so they're cheeseheads too, if you look close #2 son is wearing a white Packers windbreaker.

After the ride on Christmas we had a shot of brandy and a Leinenkugel to warm up, ooffda!
