Thumbs up How about the weather

Gotta love this March weather, got the bike out already. It only sat for 3 months. I give my brother a hard time about that, he's a sled fan.Click the image to open in full size.

Yeah its time to open up the shop and get some fresh air in there after the long winter. And at least your brother got some snow to last more than a couple days to ride on! So he shouldn't complain at all.

I was hoping the weather would be a little warmer myself this weekend ended up getting friday off and was wanting to start back up brewing biodiesel, but the shed I have setup for doing that is not insulated or heated and the stuff gels at like 42degrees when I am trying to brew it so it won't work until the temps stay higher than that. I really wanted to get it going again so I can quit paying high prices for the fuel.
Oh well guess I should go work on the Ranger, at least I have a heater in that shop.

428, Rich there races over on the other side of the state, but I do know there is a couple races a year in Lamoni IA still a pretty long drive for you but it's a night race, usually on Friday nights that I always try to attend.
You will have to post up some of the races you know about in SW iowa I might make the trip over that direction if I can.
