Too cold in Lake Tahoe ( and the Raiders were playing) to roust any riders to accompany me so I rode solo. I just put on my snowmobile pants and layered. Put the leathers on top. I was toasty warm what's the big deal?Sorry no video or sounds as I had no camera operator. But here are the pics I took.



Nice looking pipes.



She has a nice rear!


Almost time to chain up!!



The salesman SAID those factory Dunlaps were Mud & Snow Rated, I found them kinda slippery:shock:



Creeks are freezing over.

Self portrait, now I am a poser!


Sepia (new camera new effects!)


Negitive image effect

All in all it was a fantastic ride. I love my Cobra speedster longs. Clicked off 104 miles and avg.48 mpg with the new pipes. I'm happy. I love the smell of the new baffle material burning in after a high speed run. 24 miles were on a back road (the snowy one) putting. No FI 2000 installed yet. However is is on my workbench:-D

That is cool, awesome pics! Loved the tire track in the snow! Beautiful scenery and the bike looks great with the pipes.

Lake Tahoe? I didn't know you got snow lately. Nice pics. Won't comment on your friends choice of teams.

With the snow, looks a bit like North Dakota today.

Not what I call snow. This was a "dusting" Saturday, everything melted except in this deep south shaded canyon in the middle of a 9% grade. I turned around when the patches became 100-200 foot runs. Going up the grade was easy, going down made me a little tense. Don't come up to ski yet. Heavenly is anything but right now.

Great pics, love the background. here is nothing like a cool crisp wind. IMO bikes breath better in cold air.

Snow Covered

You are one brave rider. :-o I also enjoyed looking at the pics with your bike. I love riding in cold air, but not with snow in the ground.

I am also glad that you had a great solo ride. Regards.
