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.

    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
    • Looking for any intel one would be willing to share for bass fishing on Long Lake just south of Park Rapids.  Our family will be headed there in a couple of weeks.  From what I gather its predominately a walleye lake.  I'm just trying to get a general feel of the lake and hopefully shorten the learning curve.   Thanks, BK
    •   Unfortunately, we just don't know when that will be (injury, free agency, etc.), and by the time they wind down someone else will have already taken their place. More to the point, we need to get to the dance a few times before we will be a threat to the likes of GS, or anyone else for that matter. Get these young guys some playoff experience, continue to build, and add pieces wherever and whenever we can. Keep moving ahead, that's all we can do. It's a cliche, but we can't control what other teams do...only what we do, and I think we are making good decisions with players and personnel lately.
    • Just a guess but we are probably giving it a year or two with the team we have to see what they can accomplish, I know that isn't as sexy and making trades and some big moves or blowing up the team but of the last 5-6 years last year was the first time we could be consider a true cup contender. That one other year we got Dubs and went on a late season run I think a case could be made for being a dark horse contender but of course we got booted by Chicago so ya they were just better than us on every level that year. Eventually Pommers will be gone, Staal's contract will be up and who knows what happens with Koivu and we will be forced to re-tool and get younger. This season will be very telling if we can sustain the level of play we saw for a good chunk of the season last year or if we go mental again. The positive to the mental side of our game is if we get hot at the right time we can be a force, the hard part is lining that up for the playoffs when we just can't seem to get it all together.
