Got myself a little project. Not as involved as +John Kaufmann 's Bronco though. Just need to change the spark plugs, drain the gas tank, lube throttle, brake, and clutch cables, and adjust the idle. It's ready to go as is, just gonna do some maintenance. already ditched the windscreen.

+Oscar Cruz Well... I bought a Victory Sport Cruiser the other day so the Vulcan will be going to a new home soon.

Congrats on the win! This is a great video, my hands were literally sweating by the time you got to the sprint, great effort. This is the next best thing to racing with a team/partner/friend. Unfortunately I don't have anyone to race with to learn racing strategies (club rides aren't the same) so this is the next best thing.

This was a really fun show, I was over by the sound board. Great band, thanks for posting.

+John Kaufmann I just put the overlay on to check it out and its so much more interesting to watch. Next time I ride I'll do it up that way. Had to take today off.

A Great Freeze Over the Great Lakes | NASA Aqua
February 21, 2014: Ice cover on North America’s Great Lakes reached 88 percent in mid-February 2014—levels not observed since 1994. The average maximum ice extent since 1973 is just over 50 percent. It has surpassed 80 percent just five times in four decades. The lowest average ice extent occurred in 2002, when only 9.5 percent of the lakes froze.

The images above were acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite on February 19, 2014. The first image shows the Great Lakes in natural color in the early afternoon, when ice covered 80.3 percent of the lakes, according to NOAA’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory.

“Persistently low temperatures across the Great Lakes region are responsible for the increased areal coverage of the ice," said Nathan Kurtz, cryospheric scientist NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. Cold air and winds remove heat from the fresh water until it reaches the freezing point, at which point ice begins to form on the surface. “Low temperatures are the dominant mechanism for thickening the ice, but secondary factors like clouds, snow, and wind also play a role.”

“We had an early ice season this year, owing to cold temperatures in the fall and early winter,” added George Leshkevich of NOAA’s Great Lakes lab. “Ice was reported on bays and harbors of the Great Lakes as early as the end of November, as opposed to the normal timing of mid-December.”

The frozen lakes have implications well beyond the water surface and the winter. Extensive ice cover on the Great Lakes can change the patterns and amounts of the famous “lake effect” snowfall in the region, explained Walt Meier, a cryospheric scientist at NASA Goddard. When the lakes are mostly ice free, cold west or north winds blow over the warmer water, pick up moisture, and then drop snow on the lee side of the lakes (usually eastern and southern shores). When the lakes freeze, the effect generally shuts down. However, the region is still receiving a fair amount of snow this winter due to other weather patterns, Meier noted.

Lake levels could be affected in the summer. Winter ice cover generally reduces evaporation during winter months. If that turns out to be the case in 2014, it would be “good news for local water supplies, as well as for shipping and recreational use,” Meier said.

A 2012 study published in the Journal of Climate by scientists from NOAA’s Great Lakes lab found that winter ice cover on Lake Superior decreased 79 percent from 1973 to 2010. The study also showed that ice cover on the lakes is highly variable and difficult to predict.

I've eaten in the dining room a few times and ordered lunch to go and its never disappointing. The menu is unlike any other restaurant and there are always interesting specials. The food is great, always cooked perfectly and presented beautifully and the staff is friendly.
