Yeah... Winter comes too fast now. I hope to get one more ride in...
I put about 7K of miles on this summer on the Bonneville that I traded for the Bobber
Next summer will chock up the miles on the Bobber, will just need a few more stops for gas
Sad day today. Cleaned and lubed the chain, waxed all the painted surfaces and put her away with her two sisters into hibernation for the cold winter months that will be here soon. I keep the tiger 800 in the garage on stand-by for the remaining days left for riding before the salt shakers coat the roads, then I wait for spring when the rains wash the roads from winter grime.
I do go to Florida for the month of February where I store my Fatboy for the purpose of riding the boring roads there but it's better than nothing.
Here are the three amigas waiting to go into the motorminium, that's what my wife calls it.
Sorry to hear it's no riding for a while. Just keep posting here and those of us in more riding friendly climates will do our best to keep your spirits up.
You may remember I rode 8,200 feet up a Colorado mountain last year, the bike got snowed in and five months later (when we left) there was so much snow I still had to 'unceremoniously' trailer the old girl off the mountain, so I feel for you mate.
The pic of of last winter, I had the little area of concrete outside the garage to push her our for some fresh air and to let her run for a few minuets each week.
Thank you for the uplift Roy. Those of us who have to curtail riding during the winter months are used to the ritual. It's not easy not to be able to ride but when I look out the window the urge passes immediately.
