    Howdee Hi Yall !

    Took the Viva 250 out today on our track at my house here in Washington State . It was 22* cold out , 8" to 12" of Powder Snow .
    That was the most dangerous hour of my life besides arguing with my Fiance' of course
    I can tell you from first hand experience now , that without snow studds on your Knobbies , these bikes aint worth a crap in the deep snow . They do go ok in it , but it is deadly slippery at best . I will say it made me pay attention though I got into second gear once , but re-thunk it and quickly backed her down into first . Made for some fun snow doughnuts though !!!! I think next year I may just make a set of studds if I can afford another set of rims . Would be too much fun !!!!





    Enjoy, Snortin Norton out

    Christmas is a decidedly DIFFERENT colour here in Sydney... Still, it is far more conducive to lazy afternoons of boozing in the sun... i.e. a nice hot Xmas picnic

    I wish I had a snowmobile Carl
    We don't useually get this much snow here .
    Earlier tonight we lost power for three hours , I guess a tree collapsed under the weight of the snow on our grid somewhere ? A whole 66 people went without power for three hours , boo hoo hoo . I am out in the sticks , so am surprised they got it back on with all the snow out there in the dark . I was kinda whining though , I was about to watch Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer on my new CD X-Mas collection that my gal gave me early for X-Mas . I refuse to grow up , just going to grow old Carl
    Still snowing . If I wasn't so big I would ride the gals Typhoon ATV in this crap .

    Glad you finaly ordered Carl , let me know what you think when you try it out ..
    ---------------------------------------------------------

    KingMarty45 ,
    more power too ya on that basteing in the hot sun with alcohol thing
    If I drank , I think I would still rather be here with a big fat Brandy laced Egg Nog or a nice Hot Battered Rum , or even a very stiff Jim Beam soaked Coffee watching the snow melt or fall . But hey , X-Mas in the sun aint so bad , especially if your drunk !!!!

    Cheers, please have one for me , or make that four for me

    When I went down to the store in my car the other day with 8 inches on the ground I saw several people out with thier ATVS playing around. I am sure it has all to do with what kind of knobbies your running . If my gals truck wasn't stuck in the driveway I would take hers out to play , but having over 16" of snow now that truck aint moving anywhere .
    Its still snowing too
    Good storm , definately a WHite X-Mas here .

    Later , you guys are the best ! Snortin out .
    Where's Culcune Carl ? I am sure you have touched bases with him by now .

    Snortin out
