After a frigid blast moved through, actually it just stopped and hung out for a few days with us, I am feeling better. As my luck would have it, now that my flare is about 70% gone, I have a stye in my left eye. It doesn't hurt, itches a little and looks like I was on the wrong end of a bar room altercation. Other than that, I am actually felling pretty good now.
So good in fact, I got out to the garage and mounted a new front tire on my KLR yesterday. I used my handy dandy new ATV jack that I had to buy just for the new scooter. It is too low to the ground to use a normal dirt bike lift. It was a struggle and my hands paid for it dearly but I finally got the stiff walled DOT approved knobby tire on the rim. After I checked the spokes, wheel bearings and brake pads, I put the wheel back on and was amazed at how much better the bike looks. Once I get the rear knobby on, it will look a little more like a true off road bike. I have 2 weeks off at Christmas into New Years and I am hopeful we will have at least 2 or 3 days warm enough to ride. Did you hear that Mike? You'd better get your happy butt down this way and ride with us ... weather permitting.
