From The Directors

From the Directors,

 

It is the doldrums time of you year in Wisconsin.  So far we have fared well in the weather department.  Snow in and around Lake Winnebago has been mild as have the temperatures.  Although, at least one of Chapter C’s members has been brave enough to ride the Wisconsin Roads.

 

As I promised last month, here is an update on the “Ice Motorcycle Experiment”.  The Grom(motorcycle) is completed with its’ fenders removed and its’ new knobby tires fitted with concrete screws to act as spikes.  It now has looks that make it eligible for an audition in the next “Mad Max” movie.  Taking it out on the ice for me was a bit of a “white knuckles” event.  Even with being totally dressed with appropriate gear, the thought of falling on very hard ice is not pleasant.  The bike has a feel of instability as opposed to the Goldwing’s smooth ride on a nice paved surface.  After about 10 minutes my comfort level increased, and I was quite comfortable cruising at about 20 mph.  I do not plan to get into ice racing, but it is an enjoyable, being in a different environment in fighting that dreaded disease “parked motorcycle syndrome”.

 

Wednesday, January 16, 2020 we had 16 people at Ala Roma Restaurant in Fond du Lac for lunch including George’s sister Cindy and Lester and Judeen from Chapter K.  The food was great and the company stimulating and fun. 

 

Linda has sent out information on our outing in February to the Fireside Theatre in Fort Atkinson.  We extended the invitation to Chapter M as well. It’s a great venue.  We will be enjoying a nice lunch and seeing a professional production of “Saturday Night Fever”.

 

Oh well, today (Jan 18) was a typical Wisconsin Day, 6” of snow and howling winds.  It is time to hunker down and dream of sunny days, Spring fragrances, and blipping the throttle as I come out of sweeping curve. Until next month…



 Enjoy the Ride,

 Leo and Linda
