Motorcycle is stuck in garage

14 posts in this topic

Well I have my motorcycle in the garage. Have done nothing to is because up till a little over a week ago I was riding it. With the snow that we have now that is not gonna happen again for a while. I think that I am going to have to get a big quilt and cover the thing up though! Just hate to see it sitting there knowing that I can not get on her and go fer a ride. Dang, I love to ice fish but I sure do miss the bike as well. Might trailer our bikes down south in Feb to get some riding in though! That would be great! Any one else looking to do that? Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

My mom and dad snowbird every year to Florida. I've been telling myself the last couple of years to go visit them and bring the bike.

It bites right into my ice fishing, tho. I know I should take some time and go visit my folks, but a guy only has so much ice fishing time.

Boilerguy... I speak from experience when I say you have a lot more time left to ice fish than you do to go and see your parents. I would give anything to be able to go and hang out with dad one more time. Not preaching, I'm just sayin...

Both mine and my other half bikes have been sitting for most of the year (his broken down, mine well nothing wrong apart from I'm pregnant), I know how you feel to have one of your babies just sitting there my bike was and is still my baby I give her a pat every time I walk by her...poor thing lol...Now with the baby on the way I think it may be time to sell both of them and buy the sleeper fish house...I would love to take a ride down south one time before we make the decision to sell but that may need to wait till I'm not so preggo lol, If you go take some pics to share, its always nice to see happy riders.

Be safe and happy riding

Oh yeah... will get some pictures. Welcome aboard! Hope to hear from ya now and then! We were at the Yamaha dealer in Faribault last night. Looking to trade mama's 650 in on an 1100. She had test driven it before the weather turned bad and now she is just kind of waiting to see what the new 950's look like. Of course they don't have one of them yet but should soon. She just started riding this year and just loves it. The 650 never was a "keeper" bike just something used and in-expensive for her to learn on and figure out if she even liked it and now it is time to upgrade. They have a realy purdy 1100 Silverado sitting there. She wants to go to TX in Feb to see the middle son and we can get some riding in. Just need to find a covered trailer trailer to beg, borrow, or steal to haul them down there with. While kids are a 24X7 operation I could never be talked into selling a bike because we had one. Of course that is easy for me to say as we are now empty nesters! Still if nothing else ya have to get back and forth to work! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Thank you for the welcome smile

It would be alot of fun to travel south and ride till your hearts content or your iron butt has melted, especially when everyone in mn sits and stares at their baby locked up for the season.

It's nice to hear that your mrs loves to ride as well always nice to see other women out there enjoying it.

Riding is how me and my other half met,so riding is important to us since it has that memory factor to it, selling the bikes isn't something we wanna do but with the baby comming a wheelhouse would get more use then the portable soooo its a scream and a pull of the hair and a yell of what to do lol.

I wish I knew how to add pics here I would post some of the bikes we have, I have an 03 Yamaha Yzf R6 special edition, my other half has a 92 Kawi zx7 (she's getting old so thats why she aint workin to well right now).

Keep us posted if ya's get the new Yami smile

IceChicka,

in the phtography section, there's directions about posting pics. It's actually pretty easy. The other alternative would be to e-mail them to someone else to post them for you.

Unless you were on a machine like a KFX700 or a Can Am Renegade 800. Not as much power as a rocket, but definitely a thrill of it's own.

    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
    • They will lose 90 to 100 games again this year. They do not have the pitching to even get to 500. Santana will be our lone all-star and be traded before end of year. Hope something changes but they did not add anything for starters or offensive so until they do we will get the same junk. Really sucks cause i love watching and listening to the games all summer long.
    • % of people that have picked that person. 
    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54"! Have a look!  
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.
