Friendly Tip: your bikes are on the wrong side of the garage door....



It's 15 degrees F inside my garage today. Had to plow the driveway today with a tractor...

Story behind the pic...

Had to make some room in the garage for the day while I put up shelves and built work benches. Niether would start after spending the entire day outside at 18 degrees F.

I know....Bike abuse.

I know there are certain sound regulations that need to be adhered to, but what the heck was Yamaha thinking when they designed that tailpipe? It's the size of a garbage can.

BTW, forgive my ignorance of Japanese bikes, but what is the not-BMW on the right side of the picture? Judging by the exhaust and rear tire, I am assuming something with at least a 1.5 litre engine?

Yeah...I know. I tell people that I went to buy a muffler and they threw in a bike. It's a love it or hate it thing...I've grown to like it. Sounds nice!

Yamaha Road Star Warrior, 1700 cc. It's the best handling cruiser I've ever ridden.

Interesting...

I ride my S down to 10 F (as long as the roads are clear). Never had a starting problem.

Mebbe time to invest in a battery tender (I use the battery doc from Bob's BMW)

Craig,

Lennie,

I use to live in Cincinnati but have just recently relocated just south of Columbus. Lawrenceburg has become a gambling-boat town.

I usually ride all winter (which isn't to bad thanks to global warming), but my bike didn't start anymore at -14 C (6 degrees Fahrenheit), because it couldn't pump the oil round anymore.
I already had a K1200 battery installed, so I'll have to switch to different oil in winter.
