anyone else still riding?

It was a very nice day for riding today. Rode into work and it was chilly at 7am. Very nice going home though.

for me theres multiple reasons:
Cagers are alot less on the lookout in the winter months
I dont find riding in the rain as enjoyable, dealing with fogged visors
The routes that I like taking all have wet leaves on the ground now
I have a car insured as well so why bother?

If you got stands, put the bike on them so you don't get a flat spot on your tires. Otherwise, occasionally roll your bike to move where the tire contacts the ground to prevent the flat spots.

If your bike is stored outside, plug the exhaust and air intakes so no bugs get inside over the winter months.

I am on non-rainy days. Fingers are numb by the time I get to work in the morning. And I need to pack an extra jacket and shoes in my already full backpack because I can't wear motorcycle gear all day. Despite the ridiculous price of a givi top box I might suck it up next season and finally get one.

Clear today, at least in the morning. Cold tires are slippery first thing in the morning, y'all be careful!

Went out today or around an 11/2hrs and it was freezing cold with the wind chill. I think a heated vest or jacket might have helped.
