:( I hate this time of year, wet and cold,with leaves all over. Once and a while you get that old ball day of sunshine and good temps., but it"s usually not on the weekend:( .
The end is near for the end of the riding season in this neck of the woods, I"ll be saving for Ohlins rear shock and fork re-valve/rebuild................and of course track days for 06":p

I know the feeling. It's getting down there here in Minnesota.

I'll still get out once in awhile. I make it a point to at least ride 1 or 2 times each month of the winter.

That, along with a trip or two out of state.:thumbup

Yeah, snow is just around the corner here too. Im gonna have to pack up the bike for the winter.

Oh, wait a minute, I live in Florida, hahaha. What winter? Snow, that the reason i left Boston, is so i didnt have to shovel that white crap anymore.

Sorry guys, just had to be the first to gloat. Im sure there will be a week or two that I cant ride............

Yeah same for me. I moved to the South of France and whilst it does get colder here and can sometimes snow for the odd day in winter. I've changed my tyres to pilot power for quicker warm up the roads are twisty as hell with great grip and today it's sunny and in the mid 70's. Where I live is 8 miles north of Cannes and very similar climate and terrain to Southern California. :yesnod

That's why I couldn't live any further north than here in central Va. It's does get cold here but we don't get a lot of snow unlike the areas up north. I just put on extra clothes and keep on riding through the winter.

Yeah it definitely gets hella-cold here in the winter. I remember a day last winter or maybe the one before when the high was 17 below. I dont have a sled, but thats just cuz i'm a poor college student. Graduating in May, hopefully getting a full time job and a lot more toys.

That mainly is for the Northeast section because from Va on further south we can almost ride all year round.
