Hi guys,
I like your winter hobby - especially if you are using Ski-Doo`s.

I´am working in the company, manufacturing the engines for them - Rotax.

Unfortunately Ski-Doo operation is not allowed in Austria.
Only for service personal of lifts and restaurants on the mountains.

Thus, waiting a long time until spring for biking again!!
Ralf

Hey b3 .. located in Marlborough, but that pic is from our camp up by Sherman, Maine. They get so much snow up there every year and have an incredible trail system. 10,000 miles of groomed trails! I finally upgraded my old 98 SkiDoo with a 2016 Polaris this year, so its time to try out another manufacturer. I usually don't stick with any one brand of anything, except for Topcon (work), but just whatever I can find a good deal on. Haven't ran it yet... but soon!

Important request for the moderator!

BAN anyone who posts pix of snowmobiles or, FTM, ice, snow, or anything else associated with winter ... unless a motorcycle is involved.   Evil or Very Mad





Very Happy

Never quite understood that most guys on sleds are really anti motorcycle and most motorcycle riders are anti sleds? Makes no sense to me.... but me and my buddies will rip on whatever has an engine, track, or wheels. I ride sleds cause I need my motor / acceleration fix when the bikes are in the garage for the season and the power-band on a 2 stroke is Intoxicating! Might as well make the best out of the winter. WooHoo! ok No more snow stuff...

I was kidding about snowmobiles and winter moto-sports!

True, I have no interest in those but, in fact, admire folks who are hardy enough for that exhilaration and acceleration. I'm not.

Thankfully, while we get often c.60 inches of snow where we live, and others a few miles north get much more, it tends to disappear within a few days, so I am not tempted to have a Moto-$chnapps $hop, too. Wink

Actually, I regret not taking advantage of my two-year exile in Rock Island a few years back and renting a snowmobile now and then there or elsewhere in nearby Iowa, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.  Was curious about it.

My dream winter machine is a smallish Kubota tractor. Hard to justify the cost for plowing our driveway, but if rationality was the standard few of us would be on two wheels. Wink

Good point, Tony.  That said, I only rarely have a G&T between first and last frosts, and prefer bourbon -- a well-made Old Fashioned, especially, in winter.  As, however, I recall posting pix here of sipping G&T's on the occasional balmy day of January, etc., I better not be too categorical about that.  cheers

Best,

Bill

Ya Bill, I knew you were Kidding! Cabin Fever is a terrible thing for us northerners. I purposely try not to fully stock the bar during this "down time".

On the other side of the globe, where we think snow scenes are pretty, this was last winter. There was a bush fire just a few miles over the hill, too. Good riding, but there are no maples to tap, either. Another lack, up with which we must put. Sigh.

Do you put a splash of soda water in your Old Fashioned? I thought I'd try one. I don't hate it, but I'm not loving it either. What's your recipe? Mine just has bitters, sugar, a splash of water and bourbon.

Maybe your right. I thought I'd try something different. Perhaps "different" isn't for me.

Having said that, I had another, but this time I only used 2 dashes of bitters, and added a splash of soda water and 4 drops of lime juice. Yummy.


cheers

Since my machine came to me used with unknown history, I thought I might take a look in the sump during the oil change. I'm posting the pic as a prompt for consideration along with the commonly mentioned swingarm bearings etc.
I saw no indications of low pressure although clearly it wasn't getting all the lube it should have. The missing gasket piece was not found so perhaps it exited the drain hole at an earlier oil change.

That's pretty much what do, tho the proportions are important.  This is as much like I do as any I've found.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The "not too strong" and "not too sweet" are a bit like financial advisors who say "Buy low; sell high."  But that is the key.  

Contrary to the neat-sipping purists who do it all straight up, I like most bourbons on ice year 'round.  On special occasions -- e.g., when romance is in the air at home  queen  Wink  or at fine restaurant and in no hurry -- I order an Old Fashioned.  I always politely quiz the bartender how they make those.  One of the best I've had recently was, to my great surprise, made by the (extraordinarily spunky and cute 20-something lady bartender at, of all places, a Carrabba's. That young woman got it right.  Plus, she spotted me as the old guy who would tip well, she did not short the bourbon.   cheers

Actually, I don't like overly strong drinks or the upper-proof bourbons, especially in an OF.  

Anyway, I just may have one now.  Joining us for Christmas, my brother is driving up from Atlanta; he's late and about 100 miles out.  He's a night owl; I hit the sack early.  I'll talk to him at breakfast, but have that drink now.   Very Happy

Buon Natale, all!

Old Fashioned are fine, but Manhattans are better................ ;-) Though plain old Bourbon is a good thing... as is Irish Whiskey, or Scotch, or..... ah forget it, I'm going for the Michters.............. Twisted Evil

On my way home from Albuquerque a couple of years ago, In St. George, Utah I had a nice dinner in a restaurant across from my hotel and when the waitress came around to ask me if I'd like any dessert I said, "Yeah, I think I'll have a Jameson, neat, please." She looked at me funny and said she didn't know what that was. I said, "Just ask the bartender, he'll know."

Well, she was gone for several minutes, much longer than it takes to pour a shot of whiskey, and when she finally returned she handed me a Jameson and soda! I explained that "neat" meant "plain", no ice, no water, no nothin', “neat”! She apologized and went back to the bar.

Another few minutes passed before the restaurant manager came over to clarify my order explaining that in St. George they thought that "neat" meant “with soda”. So I explained it to him too and eventually I got what I asked for. Jeez Louise, at that point I really needed a double! They should have comped the drink, but no. And it wasn't a drop over a regulation shot.

Maybe Utah's not the best place to go drinking.
