Motorcycle is stuck in garage

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
    • Awesome!  Congrats and great work!!!
    • Five hours? Wow! That's about 3 hours longer than any bird I've ever worked. Good job.
