You're not wrong there mate.

We just had a weekend 'off' the mountain. It was only an hour and a half away but 4,000 plus feet lower, sunny and dry. I could have rode my bike all weekend IF it wasn't in bits and I had a trailer..

I'm consoling myself with winter mods as there is no way I would keep the bike this long off the road to do such things.

Cheerio,

Roy

-43C yikes that's colder than a witches t*t. I would hate to try starting a vehicle in that weather that didn't have some kind of engine heater.

Yeah, Mine parks in a heated garage, but otherwise that's a must, although there are still lots of folks that try it with out. Not usually successfully though I can't imagine the wear on a set of bearings after a couple years of doing that..
