Hi All,

It may look like winter outside your door, where you are...The good news is SPRING is just around the cornner. Just hang in there. sunny

71F is what the high will be here in Glenpool, OK....Next week they say SNOW!!! No

I think this is some kind of record here for this date. cheers

Nice. Are you going to ride today, Dennis?

We got 5" of snow this morning, and the temp will fall to -25F over the weekend. Not nice. I will NOT be riding anytime soon.

I've just returned from 11 days in the Canary Islands (Gran Canaria) - mid-70s every day.
It was lovely.

Hey Guys,

A REAL man would ride in 10" of snow wearing only shorts and a t-shirt!!!

Mike,

I was going to go to the Canary Islands once...but I'm afraid of birds. chickendance

When I was younger ....

I rode home quite a few times in the snow to get home ( I do not remember how many inches) while wearing a t-shirt and long pants .... under a snow mobile suit ... does that count Razz

Now I prefer to not to see snow except on the TV.

Its only 40C here with 120% humidity, been that for a few days, tomorrow we get hit with a Cat 3 cyclone here in Perth.

Better hatten the batches and lug the roof. 100kph winds and lots of rain. Predictions are it will decline to a cat1 by the time it hits the coast.

Eeee them were the days.

Back in the early 70's I had Lambretta Li 125 and rode it to work (in office attire and a Parker) in all weathers including snow. There were many a time that I would arrive suffering from snow blindness, wasn't very nice No

I used to wear ex Post Office mits with a hole cut in it so I could hold my cigar as I was riding along Smile

Pha!! Its been a balmy 37 degrees F. here in Exeter all day, so Sally and I decided not to let the good weather go to waste and broke out the BBQ!

Holy Smokes!! It's 71F Today!!!  P1290021

This the 'Man Grill', inspired by US Comic Tim Allen! I've been messing around in my workshop recycling all the bits of scrap etc. that I could find lying around.

I've had a lot of interest, which is nice as I plan to donate the money raised selling the, to BLESMA to support the riders section etc.


I'm really pleased actually, the grill has continued to be useable for in excess of 3 hours and gives off loads of heat Smile

Holy Smokes!! It's 71F Today!!!  P1290020

A friend next door has spent the day with his father working on a Landrover Discovery project and I took the 'test sausages' around to warm them up, a little late Jay (neighbour) popped in and took one look and asked for one for his garden What a Face So it seems that I may have a market after all.

Typically, Sally doesn't want me to sell either the 'Man Grill', or the Brazier I made as well, maybe I won't - perhaps I'll keep them as demo pieces instead and make items to order.

Next project is a triple size 'Man Grill' - who says bigger isn't better LOL.

Hey Skippy, If they find a lorry with a missing wheel, they'll know where to look. I love home built rigs like that. Half the fun is figuring what it is made from. Good job.
