First ride of the season---15 April

Got something like 20 inches of snow plus.      This plus a snow 10 days ago amounts to over 50% of our annual season’s snowfall—all in the first two weeks of April.  Too bad it didn’t show up in Dec.    MXZ fired right up with a couple of primes.    First 12 hours of storm was wet snow, so have a base like concrete too.    Best riding conditions in 3 years;  tracked up the trails thru my 40 acres,

Wow, lucky guy! Nice to see you get out, haha especially in April nonetheless!  This "spring" has been strange to say the least.  Had some flurries here in my parts today, but no such luck like you!  Unbelievable.

Way to go G & G, April is late but better than never. Here is eastern Massachusetts yesterday we had 38 degrees, pouring rain, and a relentless easterly wind of 30 mph right in the face of the runners. It was Boston Marathon Monday. What a unique event. The worst conditions possible. I live in the town of Ashland, the second town on the route. The runners come pouring down the hill out of Hopkinton and hit the straights in Ashland.  Got zipped up in Gortex from head to toe and took up my usual position on the course at the four mile mark. There really are no words for how tough these people are.

That's awesome G&G!  Bonesey is right - the Z looks great!  To me they all look better with snow on them    And make hay when the sun shines!!!
