Say it ain't so!!!!!

Weather in north Carolina isn't that bad during the winter months. It will get cold at times, even get a little snow or ice once in a while but I don't think I would ever see enough to warrant putting a cover over mine.

Group hug. :needahug::needahug::needahug::needahug:

What's that red thing by your bike? We don't have any of those around here. :D Actually I don't ride nearly as much this time of year either. It's cold and wet for much of the next several months and we get ice on the roads occasionaly, and on rare occasions some snow too.

Over the summer I bought a shorter car that gives me enough room to keep the bike ready in case the temps are high enough. :action:

I put both of the NightHawks away yesterday, but the Goldwings are still available to ride. I'll wrap up the 1200 next month sometime, but the sidecar bike has to stay available for ice fishing season.

BTW, we build snowblowers to actually move snow. http://hackedgadgets.com/2008/12/21/v8-engine-snowblower/

Well, I hate to say it, but our best riding season is just starting. One can ride year round in Phoenix, but between June and September any riding would be headed straight north (high country) early in the morning and home early or after dark.

For now, I'm commuting to work on the 'wing.

Took a 100 mile ride on Fri. Left, the temp was 53* by the time I arrived at destination it was 46*, riding the Goldwing with all the flaring it felt just right.

I try to get the bikes out once a week through the winter here but it gets hard to do. The Silverwing is fuel injected and is lighter so it will see regular usage during the rainy months. As soon as we get the clear/cold skies, I have my electric coat on and enjoying some afternoon smiles.

When I want to see snow I can drive up in the mountains - Idyllwild is the closest snow.

That said, it's pretty darn frigid here this morning. Thermo says 44.

Oh well. Time to make sure I have the liner zipped in my mesh jacket. By this afternoon it'll be unzipped from it.

No offense guys, but we just don't have this worry here in south Texas. It may get a bit chilly but we don't store them up for the winter......

I look forward to the cold. Doesn't change my riding habits. Changes me and mybikes clothing though. Saturday looks like fun. Saturdays forecast has changed since last night. Was clear, no snow. We'll see. Our second 'cold-spurt' is coming-up with temps in the teens.

As I tell the Boys and Girls around here, "...you either like it or you don't. If sweeping your garage floor is your thing, then sweep away..."

Mike, I'm gonna get me a sidecar one day. Snowmobiles don't do it for me. ;)
