Salsa RickLick

As a few of you know if you are face friends, I had my bday over the weekend. Big ole 36. Thanks to racing all of these years I can no longer remember my real age when someone asks me. I simply blurt out my racing age so anyone who asked me my age this summer already thinks I'm 36. Either way, it's official now.

As a semi-surprise (marcy told me the day before) for the occasion, Marcy arranged for a few of my friends to come over for poker and ping pong. I won't bore you with all of the details but suffice it to say, plenty of beer was drank and money was lost (and found by Tim.  fucker) and my brother almost broke his elbow trying to return a shot during late night ping pong.  How you end up with both feet in the air and land elbow first on our basement floor is beyond me but it sure was funny to watch.

despite drinking roughly 45 beers we still have a cooler full.  It's going to take every ounce of my being to avoid drinking all of it before this weekend.  Thankfully we have good outdoor beer storage temps right now because beer in fridge ends up being beer in belly.
But, but, but, hold onto your hats because my real birthday present was not the party.  Oh no, it was actually the impossible to get Salsa Mukluk. Marcy, through devious means, managed to snatch the one large mukluk still available in america out from under my nose last week by getting KillBill and Big gay Al to tell me they were all spoken for. Al and KillBill gave me the sad news that the bike they though was available wasn't anymore and I'd likely have to wait til March for one to surface again. Ricky was a very sad boy. Lucky for me, my wife is awesome (and evil) and surprised me with it for my Bday.  Now Ricky is a very happy boy.

I've had a couple of quick rides on it so far and I have to say that it is a pretty cool ride but we don't have any snow currently so I CAN'T FREAKIN WAIT for the next storm to roll through!

So, what's with today's post title? I've never been one to name his bikes but, for some reason, when I say Mukluk it makes me think Ricklick. I'm not sure why. So, maybe this will be my first named bike ever. I'm open to suggestion though.

Who's a lucky boy then?
With all the snow we've been getting this past week I think that I could do with one of those.

Go to the beach young man. Took mine out for it's first official run just yesterday and it killed! No way I could have gone through the sand I was in, nor would I have tried.

Here's to snooooww..

I can't stand the beach in the summer so I can't image heading there in the winter!

Exactly how I felt. Surprise, I loved it. One person spotted on a 13 mile ride, plenty pretty and lots O' cardio.. (out on the Cape) see blog for more details.
