Cool Don't Forget the Love

Winter's here for lots of us. A few reminders before we go into hibernation and pack on those extra pounds of unwanted body weight (hm hm, Bachelor, you've sucked all the red off that "surgery candy" weeks ago, so no excuses).. Plug up those battery tenders.. pour a few ounces of fuel stabilizer into the tank.. check the tire pressures and fluid levels.. if you have a protective cover, now's the time to put it on, those little mice looking for a place to sleep need a warm bed, you know.. think of spring and warmer weather.. When the first warm day comes along, you'll be able to ride for a few hours, instead of trying to figure out why your precious bike doesn't want to start. Enjoy the cold if you can, tolerate it if you must.

To ride or not to ride? What a stupid question.

Well said.
God gave us winter to take care of our motorcycles.

Hey AH..... winter is over baby!!!!! We are leaving next week for the beach with the bikes in tow. If my knee will bend enough I’ll be on it. I’ll be feathering that front brake though. Not sure if I can push the rear brake just yet..... 🙂

Fortunately for me there is no hibernation period. In fact I did 70 miles on the CBR just the other day!

I see you over there.. in the civilized part of the state. It's marginally cooler on my side, but so much rain lately. Looks promising this Sunday, though. Enjoy those few windows of warm sunshine.

To ride or not to ride? What a stupid question.

Civilized may be pushing it. More populated and flat? Definitely. I have my CB1100 set up with hand deflectors during the winter months so it is usually the steed of choice when I get chance to ride. I just keep all the bikes on batt tenders so they are ready to go. I recently purchased a 1 piece suit (Joe Rocket Survival suit) that is a great piece of kit. Where I used to ride down to 40 degrees now that has dropped to 30. But the beauty of this state is the fact that there will be a few 70 degree days sprinkled in through winter and several 50 degrees. I hate it for the people that can't ride year round.

Minnesota has winter weather that makes me thankful I live in Canada!

Even here in Florida I barely rode 1 day out of the last 7. Its super cold. We had one day that was 43 F thats 6.11 C

I skipped taking a shower on a few days altogether just to not have to undress in the cold. I have no heater in this house.
