Today,I finally started to work on the bikes.
The snow is almost gone cheers but I am not on the rush to get them on the street.
Why? If I did, I would certainly bend a wheel or even worst crash the bike. With the sidecar and the 15" wheels, I would be afraid to scrap the bottom of the engine.
Born again eccentric was here this week and he saw only the beginning of the season. Steel wheels and snow tires will stay on the car for another couple of weeks.

Here is what we have to deal with....

Crazy frog - Glad to hear the work has finally started, I hope it all goes smoothly and you get the rigs out on the (repaired) roads again very soon.

No doubt about it, you have some excellent riding roads all around you. I'm glad that I saw the snow and ice bergs before they started their now rapid thaw, but would love to be able to come back and experience those roads and sights again on a K.

I had a great time in Halifax NS and it was a real pleasure meeting up with you. Thank you for taking the time to be such a great host - it was a shame that we didn't manage to grab a couple more cold beers before I headed out.

No trace of snow & ice back here in southern England - I returned to full on Spring with blue sky, sunshine, lush green grass, fresh leaves and trees in blossom...even the roads felt unusually smooth, quite a contrast from Nova Scotia!

Cheers and bon chance.

It's a BIG Irish road! Only round here it's not the ice and snow that does the damage: the leprechauns creep out at night and dig holes in the asphalt.

To be fair, they are probably only trying to find their crocks o' gold that some navvy went and paved over when they weren't looking. They need to dig a lot of holes...those pesky rainbow ends just keep moving around.

I copied this to make a smart comment...only to find Dai and those darn leprechauns beat us to it. But at least we get to ride these potholes all year......

This iswhat we call a pothole.......in summer......

Is that the way that eccentrics treat sweaty smelly feet and Foot Odor after a ride on the K bike?
At least you could fill the pothole with Guinness.
