Pollen ... yuck

After cleaning the Wing admiring the job you did .. walk inside to get a drink.. come back out and a coat of yellow pollen has coated you work ... but that's life is Southwestern Arkansas where pine trees are king ... I know.. I'm whining ... but I had to vent

When I get pollen on mine it is just a challenge, to go out and either blow it off or if need be engage warp drive an burn it off. :twisted:

Between the two evils ( wrap drive, snow) have to agree pollen aint that bad... just here in southwest Arkansas where pine trees are king... you have clouds of pollen when the wind blows :o ... everything is coated yellow ... having a black Wing doesn't help much (thank goodness for covers ... but the devil :evil: stuff still finds a way) ... during this time of year a yellow Wing isn't a bad idea :D

Sounds like a good enough reason to take it for a ride to blow the pollen off.
