Roller Derby and Motorcycle Hibernation

The first snow and ice hit last night, and we all know what that means.

Why, winterization of my motorcycle, of course.

Ever since my spill back in May, I haven't gotten back on, but there were several days where I was extremely tempted. There was just a lack of time factor holding me back. So next spring, I'm sure I'll be back on the road, tooling around on the beloved Ninja.

Ahh, can't you hear it purring like a panther from there?

The local roller derby team is in its off season as well. I was able to get a picture of this slippery character at one of the last bouts I attended. The saucy minx winked at me as he passed by.

If you can't see his shirt, it reads "Full Commando?"

His beard came about halfway down the front of his shirt. And all my regular readers know how I cherish certain types of facial hair art.  His though, not so much. I think he had been sampling some of the chocolate covered bacon on a stick they sell there, as some sort of flavor savers were present.

But I did get to add to my growing tee shirt collection.

Look at all the lovelies!!!
So now that the motorcycle is sleeping and roller derby is done, I'm at a loss for any kickass winter diversions. Maybe I'll take up curling.

Any cool suggestions for an ennui ridden gnome would be greatly appreciated.

Ice fishing could pass the time. No?

This is so lame, but our family lives for competing against each other. We have ongoing beanbag tossing contests going on right in the living room. No one ever gets tired of it.

Chocolate covered bacon on a stick? What will they think of next?

I really love the tees.

Lady Lilith said...

Nice shirts. I also like to collect tees from places I visit. I myself have never gone to a roller derby but it does look like fun.

I vote for curling! At least it will be one place "Full Commando" guy can't follow 'coz if he fell on the ice, his bottom would get stuck there! lol

Liz Blocker said...

I wish I did - but "ennui ridden gnome" has me laughing out loud, as does "flavor savers". EW :)

Ava Quinn said...

Hmmm. Ice fishing. I think at this point the fish could take me. And that would be no so much badass as terrifying pathetic. lol

Ava Quinn said...

Love it, Sue! Those are the things they'll remember.

Ava Quinn said...

Thanks, M.J. !!

Don't you love doing that, Lady L? Collecting tees, that is. The roller derby is loads of fun. You get to watch all the interesting characters. And the bouts are crazily intense. Those women are rough!

Baa haa haa haaa!, Lexa!!!
