My thoughts go out to Mike from Canada who I assume is caught up in the polar vortex in North America.
Mike sent me an email late last year and I meant to post it earlier but I got caught up with other stuff. The vortex reminded me of it.
"I’m thinking of expanding on a new winter sport that I’m developing. Wait for it……Snowblower racing!
So far, I’ve blown away (!) all the competition in the 6hp. class. Spectator reviews are mixed. 50/50, in fact, depending on which way the chute is positioned.
Skeptics point out the low speeds as being detrimental. But who could argue with potent machines belching hydrocarbons being , deftly, manipulated by leather-clad he-men eager to prove their mettle?
Snowblower enthusiasts scoff at motorcyclists. While GP racers may cringe at the thought of high-siding, Snowblowerists must contend with MULCHING, should they fall off pace !
I’m confidant that given the opportunity of getting some big-name competitors ( I hear Santa and Rudolph have a lot of spare time after the 25th !) on board, folks nation-wide will be clamoring for a ‘blower in THEIR garage. Hey…..wait a minute……

B) Please keep my riding buddies upright and let the twisty roads be clean and clear. I do NOT want to sew any R.I.P patches on my leathers. If we have to prang, please allow it to be at low speed with an audience so that everyone can point and laugh.
C) Please let there be cold beer and good conversation at the end of every ride.
D) Please give me the money to pay for the Himalayan Motorcycle Tour that I’ve already booked for.
and almost finally, if I have any brownie points left at all.
E) May I have some more power for the W650.
Yours, In excited expectation for the coming silly season.
(with apologies to Doc Hillbilly of MCR. Look forward to hitting the Himalayas with you mate)
