The Fruit of my Labor

This has been something I've been wanting to try for a while now. It "only" took me 5 hours to do. It isn't perfect by any means, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

A Trek on the Trucker

Because we've had such a shortfall of snow this year, I've gotten a little tired of pushing fat tires around on pavement. Luckily, a practically new set of studded tires was in the garage just begging to be put on my trucker.
Ordinarily, I don't like to ride the trucker during the winter months. I don't want to have to replace parts that have worn out early do to corrosion from the chemicals that are put on the roads, so rides like this won't happen unless conditions are right.

Today the roads we're free of slush and were covered in a light dusting of snow from last night.

Frozen Over
They brought me to my favorite place to stop and enjoy the view.

From the Rear
Off to an early start.

From the Front
I succeeded on my second attempt at a self portrait. The first one may show up on the blooper post.

Taking yet another break. I have such a fat, lazy bike.

Hike a Bike
This was a hike-a-bike spot. Despite having only 3 lbs in the front tire I couldn't hold a straight line through the ATV ruts in the trail. Of course, since the ATV ruts are the trail, I guess I really can't complain.

I found it much easier to maintain forward momentum here.

Just a Little Build Up
This is all I had to show for my efforts, besides the big smile on my face, of course.
