Default Black Friday?

I think NOT! SCREW BLACK FRIDAY ... Absolutely gorgeous day today in South Florida! Hit about 71 degrees without a cloud in the sky! And she don't sit in the garage very long then. Only took a couple shots, but this one speaks for itself. That's Lake Okeechobee ... good 200 miles+ today (it's about 120 around the lake). Lovin' life here in the south! Had to share.

Keep the rubber side down, unless of course you have a rubber head!

Drove to Apache Motorcycle in Mesa, AZ and bought some supplies for $35. Best part was the ride there and back.

How are your tubeless rims doing? Tires look great - any issues so far?

Love those white walls... the whole package screams "style".

Snow here too.. so I had to compensate by spending far too much on black Friday stuff for the Aero. I'm gonna be busy this spring.

Record snowfall in November here and -23C. Just under 2ft. Nice base if you're into sledding. Not so good for motorcycles.

Post more pics from FL, TX, CA etc...I'll live vicariously through you.

The tubeless 'upgrade' is perfect! The WWW's I redid from the PD back to the Elastometric. There's a post somewhere on here recently.

Land? No, no Dave ... the excitement was the christening, seeing her afloat and how many knots I could get her up to! Ahoy mate! Now swab the poop deck and shiver me timbers! Land ho!

Got totally lost on some narrow back roads with my daughter today. Stopped at a horse farm and watched a guy in cowboy gear unsaddle and clean/groom his horse after a ride, saw many wide open fields full of horses and even some longhorn type cattle (I think they were yaks...but what do I know from a yak?)
Made it home safe...and a little chilled.....only 60 or so here.

Haha I wish I went to the lake during the day. I wound up going around 5. It was freezing in Pahokee! But soon as I started back east it warned up by atleast 10 degrees. Oh well looks like I gotta try again soon
