I haven't ridden my GRiSO for more than a month! I worked two weekends in a row plus a heap of overtime installing a new MRI. Last Friday week, I was struck down with some stupid virus and was bed ridden for 7 days. Today and yesterday have been the first two days I have been vertical!

I'm still not strong enough to ride. Feck this aging meat suit!

Pity the poor Landman. He hasn't ridden his GRiSO for months...

Sorry you've been a bit piqued Beetle. GRiSO is good medicine.

Amen Brother, I haven't been on two wheels since October and it will be at least another two months at best before the GRiSO sees the road. Of course I'm hoping to get a little ride in at the end of march while in Mandello Cool...

havent ridden the GRiSO since xmas(but mods done almost for spring) but the dl650 been going all winter, and been sneaking the stella out here and there... heading out this afternoon for a quick 300ish mi run with the Stelvio yeeha.  Heard from the pirates at piaggio last thursday that my new new rear wheel for the stelvio..hopefully with out the random leaking spoke is on the way from Italy...about time.  

last saturday went to top of the world and sunday, hit Buffalo mtn wind farm. for the 3 of you that know east tn.....every time I pull the dr650 out its love all over again  even if I can't walk the next day after 2 days on single track.  workin on the fat part, cant do much on the old part.

hey steak can ya send me a dr800 in the mail cheap Laughing

Been since November for Jacquie. It's been a long, cruel, winter.

4100 mile trip planned for July though. C'mon Summer!

Been there, had a gs 450 in collage in Rochester NY and rode it to school all year round, winter tires were old knobbies with 1/4-20 carriage screws bolted through them, lined with duct tape to not cut the tubes. I had a loft apt with a freight elevator in the bldg. so I could keep the bike in my apt......fun times

More fun than you would have thought, clearence under the rear fender no problem, the front though was run without for a while, then had a 1/2 ass thing cobbed on off a pe 250. (Cause I had a few pes' and lots of parts around). Sometimes starting that thing after sitting out at 1degree all day during class was fun. Got a hint for you though, if it is real cold out side, slather your face with crisco really helps it not freeze...as quick
