    I'm still going. Bought a set of Gerbing heated gear last year and it's been great.

    Rode through the winter last year, only bringing the bike in the house when snow was in the forecast. Plan on doing the same this year.

    Unhappy me...

    I am unfortunately... I usually get 14-15K in for the year riding from no snow until snow comes back but with the foot surgery I'm out this year early.

    To make it worse there is a new ride in the garage with 2 miles on it and I cannot get out and ride it...

    Gonna be a long Winter...

    The street bike will be on standby for any nice days that hit us before the sand hits the roads in full force. The dirt bike may see some action soon. We'll see.

    Not done yet, but haven't had much time lately.

    However, I still can't believe how much more power my speed triple has when it is 30-40 degrees out. Holy wheelie machine.

    The CBR is staying in until the salt is gone...the KLR on the other hand will still get its share of abuse.

    They got prepped and into the basement on Saturday.

    I got to admit the warm up ride on the Burgman at 35 degrees was pleasant.
    I might have kept here active but going to

    DISNEY

    on Sunday so then sort of tied up the rest of December so no point.


    DRZ400 still in garage if the Al Gore gets his ass in gear.
