Well, I rode my Honda Africa Twin to the gas station and back yesterday - topped off the fuel tank with fuel stabilizer added for its winter nap.
The R65LS is already snoozing with clean oil, its battery tender, and copper scrubber pads stuffed in the air intakes to keep the darn rodents out of her air cleaner! 

Here is to a better, happier, 2021, with motorcycle rallies and good friends, again (I hope)!

BBBbbbbblack Ice and Ffffffffreeezing Fog here at the moment. Tank brimmed before Christmas, battery tender attached and 15 minute run every couple of weeks.

nhmaf: I have maybe 95 cats that regularly saunter past my garage - including our own, next doors "Rainbow" because he's black and white!, neigbour accross the road, neighbour 2 doors down, neighbour who walks his cat to the shop and back etc etc. So rodents pretty scarse in these parts!

Congrats on 40 years Bob_Roller, will you be renewing your vowes?   :-*
