  1. Yesterday when we got up it was about 10 below zero here. It is warmer today...actually zero right now and is supposed to climb to a balmy 12 degrees F today. Actually staying fairly warm on the sleds but took the time yesterday to drive into Hayward and picked up a couple of facemasks. Also picked up a couple of very nice RibEyes. It's a tough life here but somebody has to do it.
  2. Hey guys, Well I picked up an '03 Venture in Reno Thursday and rode it back to Conifer CO to live at my g/f's house. I live in FL but I spend about 4-5 days a month in CO....needed another bike to ride when I'm here. The riding out here is phenominal! The ride 'home' was a beautiful route, took US50/I70 east. It was colder than I bargained for, hit snow twice. 20 degrees warmer would have made it a great ride. This bike loves the open road...nice tall O/D, cruised at 90-95 a bunch and she seems to love it. I was also impressed with her performance in the wind. It was very gusty in the Western Range, but I hardly noticed on the RSV. Impression of the bike so far.... I really like the riding position, more stretched out than alot of similar bikes. More versatile than some as far as foot placement. I like the clutch/trans. I like the wind protection. I'm happy with the handling. It looks great. Power...so so. I tend to compare it to my old Valkerie, another big bike...instant smooth speed. The Valk did drink gas like a fish. Braking...not that impressed, but I'll chalk that up to getting used to a new bike and the sheer size of this baby. So jury is out for now. I'm generally happy with everything...except one thing that I'll be working on. I knew about the whine going in, but it's worse than I anticipated. Due to the temps I wore a full-face helmet, so it didn't seem that bad. I usually wear a shorty, and once I got back to warmer temps and shed the full-face for the shorty it sounded way worse. My Valk had straight gears and a whine too. Synthetic oil made a world of difference on that bike. I'm hoping it'll help with Venture too. I'll be scouring the forum for tips and info. After being out today, I have a feeling this bike is worse than average. It has 65K on it, and I believe it was well maintained. I know it had a new clutch a couple of years ago, I need to dig into the maintenance records and see the details. If there was a factory fix I would think it would have been done at that time. Anyhow, glad to be one of Y'all now! Ride on! Chris
  4. Its only now that I can tell of my heart break of you leaving. Dq hasnt been the same without you so I too am considering the warmer climates!! I hear Ice Cream tastes better when its hot and sweaty out! Can the Fish man come too???
  5. I am in Arkansas and looking for a warmer winter . How warm is your winter ? Now... I have lived in Chicago (born there). New Hampshire, Florida, Washington state and Guam so I know about these places. I will being living in a 37 foot toy hauler 5th wheel in a park . cb
  6. Wow I can't believe the difference, a lot less weight and a whole lot warmer, not to mention the ease of getting into them. Has anyone else made the transition snow bibs? Oh and my knees a lot warmer too.
  7. Nineteen vehicle pileup, one death, and numerous road closings. There are a lot of people on here who think Texas is a tropical paradise. Well, Texas is a BIG state. Down south its a bit warmer. But up here in the frozen tundra called the Texas Panhandle, welcome to reality. http://media.amarillo.com/photos/index.php?xml=210 http://www.amarillo.com/stories/120908/web_pileup.shtml http://www.amarillo.com/stories/120908/web_roadclose.shtml/B]

    Well I bought a new to me 06 Rsv Black Cherry, if ya want to see pics its in the classifide ads under JR Lewis, its in great shape and JR is a good guy. Bike was excactly as he stated, except those pipes are alittle loud:whistling: I was looking for something with a lower seat ht. and this is it. Cant wait for some warmer weather to shine her up and go for a spin. If anyone is looking for a nice 87 VR in blue, let me know, I will be listing it in the class. shortly. Its in great shape with 42k on the speedo. Thanks craig
  9. Met Joopie today, he just walked right in as if he had been here before. We shook hands, introduced each other, said hello, talked about business, and the girls, went out to see if Scamper was still alright, talked about room for the most important in life, felt a gentle warm breeze, gave him some pepperettes and there he was gone. Wonder why he came around?:think: Maybe just to get an invite for dinner with his bride of 30 years. Well he got it, and soon we'll eat and meet together. Actually he's quite a nice guy, rides a Venture (2nd gen:confused:) and is looking to do some Venturing around when it gets warmer, looking forward to it already.
