I ride year round, but less in the winter still. I take the money I would have soent on gas and tyres and stuff and put it towards either modding my ride, or buying a cheap dirt bike or other cheap project, spend a few months tinkering and getting it all fixed up, then sell it. I always get back any money I have invested, and often a tad extra, but its really more about the fun of learning and getting something going again

I would probably still ride year round, maybe hit a track mid December, but right now nothing I take the time to relax and watch grass grow



Whoody whoody woo!

Ride 4 wheels on the trails instead of the bike. For me, getting out on a good trail ride is almost as relaxing and stress-relieving as a nice blast on the bike so I try to stay in the woods as much as possible.

I'm hoping that's more than a "try"



Typical winter for me is working out, bow hunting, archery leagues, shooting firearms (trap/skeet if warm enough and decent weather).
