Well I am watching the weather as I type and I noticed that we have more snow on the way Wednesday, with some accumulations up to 6 inches. What a way to ruin a good weekend. I am pushing 600 miles so far this month. I should hit that by the time I get home from breakfast this morning. The bike really runs good when the air is cold. I need to talk to pit900 and start to plan our Monks run in the dells soon. Them burgers sound good right now.


HANG IN THERE BEV!!!

Yep. What pit said. Always worth the burger and a good ride on top of that.

When you go to Monks, you can smell the onions cooking on the grill from 3 establishments away. They are not those burgers made in a press where they all look alike. They are thick and appear to be hand patted out. They are thick and yes they are a bit greesy, but hey what a great taste. I always believed if it is not particularly healthy it will most likely taste good and these burgers taste great. pitt and I have been going for the last 5 years and I have been going for a few more than that. You are all welcome to join us if you like.

The one downtown. Better food. Even one of the bartenders said so.

Glad you got out today Mike. It looks like it is going to turn to crap later tomorrow. I will most likely ride to work and home, but that is it. I need to find a way to make money with out going to work and still stay out of jail....lol

Well it's here. I woke up this morning and found 2 inches of the ugly white stuff on the ground. Watched the weather hoping to see a general warming trend, but no luck. Looks we are going back in the deep freeze for a few days. Hopefully the last hurah for winter, but I wouldn't count on it. Could very well be the Monks run will be in March instead of February.

we got 2-3 inches snow, wishing for more so we could open the snowmobile trails again, i have a feeling March is going to be a rough one

As of now, we got almost nothing in snow, just light rain. I was in the park hitting golf balls this morning, not to bad for February. Ground was just a little hard, but I'm use to that. We will see what happens tonight with the weather. George, give me a call when you guys get a date for monks, I'm in.
