Winter projects, oh so many!

So I sit here in my office waiting for the shop to heat up going to hopefully get my HID headlight in my GL1200. With the area around here covered in a blanket of snow its really no rush. Would love to get some things actually finished though, seems always waiting on parts for one thing or another. Every mail day is like Christmas almost. Think Im almost not going to work on Snowmobiles those things take up so much room. After this Arctic cat M7 Im done working on these dang things. Have been looking for another House as well found a few with big shops I love the one with the 50X100 shop would be perfect for what I do. But would need to build me a Upstairs for storage, awe if your going to dream dream big I always say! I took a Computer chair and cut the back off to scoot around in the shop mainly cause its more comfortable with my Bad Knee. Well sitting is getting nothing done, hope all are doing well wherever you are. John..

UPDATE: I-84 eastbound has re-opened. Earlier eastbound from Pendleton to La Grande was closed due to snowy conditions and slide offs..... Looks like I can cancel my thoughts of any riding today! LOL!

Well I found me some Passenger Arm rests, going to send the guy some money tomorrow. They will need some cleaning up but I think they will be fine. They will be removed from the luggage rack.

Looking at a set of these for my second '85 LTD. The better half feels better and safer when she is in a cockpit arrangement.

Hey Screw... "Every mail day is like Christmas almost." .. Does this mean the mail doesn't come to your house every day?? Does it also mean that you get "ALL The Junk Mail" in a lump not just Some Each day?

I drive way to fast to worry about my cholesterol

Last Saturday I planned on doing nothing all day, and by noon, I was half way done!

Wife comes home for lunch always carries in my Boxes, she's a great gal. My shop is full of different repairs to be done for customers, so it is like surprise - surprise. One thing for sure I will never change another snowmobile undercarriage what a pain, well not for 100.00 anyway! Just trying to keep my personal buying paid for with repair work. Going to try my hand on a Harley this weekend that has the push rod tubes leaking oil. Will go ahead and do a maint. on it as well. He's a good friend and riding partner. Pretty sure I got this Dune ATV sold this weekend too. Really hope so, I found 4 complete Goldwings for sale and a couple of parts bikes real cheap. The wife may kill me though. I really need a bigger shop!

Well got a Snowmobile gone and a Quad gone. Two more quads to go, then I'll be finishing the GL1100. Should of seen me out there using my Gas powered leaf blower to blow the dust out of the garage after I had swept as best I could. On a side note ended up with a Kawasaki dirt bike, couldnt believe how good of shape it is in should sell quick hopefully. Putting all my pennies together this summer and going to buy a Side by side for me and the wife to cruise in while hunting and camping.
