Cold weather.

Posted 8th December 2010 at 16:36 by ElectricCityIron

Cold weather is here, the bike is in the garage with the tender on. Now my mind will wander... I get cagey. On top of that I have a new welder out there yet to be used...I think I see myself wiring up some form of heat out there, or maybe Ill just get another work light they really throw off the heat. Maybe Ill sew some new patches on my vest...Idk I'm sure Ill find something to occupy...P.s. the baby is awesome!
