New Year Coming

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Saturday, December 29, 2012,
Happy Holidays everybody! I hope your holidays have been fruitful and enjoyable. Mine have. I'm sitting here listening to the soothing tick of a new cuckoo clock that Sara bought me. It's a real hanging weight, German made model and it's a beauty. The scooter and Cub clone sit in the garage with several inches of white stuff clogging up the driveway. Unlike last year this hasn't been a mild winter. Temperatures in the teens and twenties have kept my two wheeled fleet in dry dock and all I can...

The Brief Thaw

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Monday, December 3, 2012,
It's fifty degrees outside, the sun is shining and I don't have anywhere to go. Well, that's not completely true, In half an hour I have to take the Black Lab to the Vet for her shots but she won't sit still on the back of the scooter and I have to use the car. During the summer many great days go by unridden but somehow it seems a waste to not drag something out to ride when a day like this comes along and there isn't anyplace to go on two wheels. 
Last winter I had many opportunities to hop ...
