left home about 07:15 this morning and went to Zeeland, Mi. so I could pick up some parts for the Mighty CT 70 from a place called my trail buddy. it was about 344 miles total and I would have rode the Mighty CT 70 but it was raining, snowing, and very windy plus the Mighty CT 70 is 6v so I can't hook up heated gear :)

You could always pour petrol on your jacket, and set it on fire.

kind of cold out, I only had time to install the lift handle and replace a few of the downtube / cradle bolts on the mighty CT 70. I think the rear of the bike looks better with the 4.00- 10 tire on it, it had a 3.50- 10 on it when I bought it

It must be different where you are.
Where I am, as soon as it starts to snow, they send out all the
trucks to salt the hell out of the roads. There is NO WAY I'd
ride in that and get that salt spray in everything.
My bike is grounded until we get a good rain to wash away
the salt.

it was just a little snow squall that lasted about 20 minutes, an hour later it had warmed up and the snow melted plus for now I stay off the main streets. our side streets don't get salted and don't get plowed unless we get near 12" of snow
yesterday I installed new shocks and all I can say is it rides much better now

Well its official I got my notice that the patient "Windows 7" is officially dead and that Microsoft Doctors are no longer providing life support, all good things come to and as they say. ""RIP"

I heard something about windows 10 having some kind of big problem as of late, didn’t catch much of what I heard on the radio as it was a busy morning in and out of the truck, anyone know what that was all about :?: :?: :?:
Armed with new information and good advice from the folks on this site, I’m headed out :arrow: to the garage to finish the brake Job I started before Christmas.

Windows 10 (and Server 2016/2019) have a flaw where "Certificates" for trusted Software can be "spoofed". Does not affect Windows 7. Wise to do the patches. Tuesday was the last official round of patches for Win 7......
