    wild and whacky weather up here. Cold and substancial snow TWICE so far. 2 degrees temps but back up to low 40's. Its crazy. Bought a 250cc simplicity snow blower..i'm not playing any more,lol.

    On another note...i recently seen a 2019 all black SG Special. Nasty looking bike. 114 motor. Price really not to bad. Wish i was younger. My 2015 ultra low is my last bike bar some unforeseen financial wind fall.

    2018 is almost over. Was a blah blah year. House paid off in October..woo hoo! Son bought a house, closed a day before the first snow storm,that sucked for him. Was down in NC for two weeks before thanksgiving. 60 and sunny came home to 8 inches and / degrees....come one man,lol.

    Hope this finds everyone not licking any wounds from 2018. And 2019 looking promising.

    Heres hoping you don't have to start that thing up all winter,
    but I'm not gonna bet on that LOL

    The 19's with 114's are tempting.

    Weather here can't make up it's mind either. Lot's of rain and a few weeks ago a surprise snow storm (Nor'Easter). That day I was trying to get home from visiting a son and his family in AZ. Freaking airline got me to Baltimore and then they canceled connections to LI as well as all North Eastern cities. Thursday night stranded in Baltimore with thousands of others and they told me we can get you on a flight SATURDAY NIGHT!!!!! I told them go F___ yerselves (I quickly apologized before I got busted). I rented a car at 12:30 am Friday morn and drove the 6 hours home through the night. First time I ever got stranded in an airport and I've been traveling by air a tone for business and pleasure. Winterized the scooter, sad, sad day for me. I usually don't but the body is getting too sensitive for the cold weather riding, just cold in general!
    A few days after my airline adventure the wife and I flew to NC for Thanksgiving. I was stressed beyond belief waiting to get F'd over by them again, thankfully all went well. It Was cold and rainy there too!

    We were in NC 2 weeks prior to thanksgiving, we drove home on thanksgiving to avoid any traffis. It worked! We went down tne 2 weeks prior to thanksgiving to watch 16 year old grandson wrestle. He's a sophomore in HS and is good. We watched him wrestle 8 times. He won 7. Plus a friend down there bought a front end wrecked 2005 ultra and i brought him some parts. Daughter lives in snow hill,wheres in NC did you go?

    Interesting....just called his number...someone picked up but wouldn't talk. They stayed on line for about 40 seconds then hung up. Weird.

    Thanks for trying. I can only assume he's incapacitated. Sad.
