Well out here in Illinois the weather has gotten colder and many riders have already put away their bikes. However I just can't seem to stop.

Every time i go to class with my gear all my classmates and friends think I am nuts for riding this late in the season. However I just can't put the 6 away yet. Anyone else have this problem?

Nope...not me. Not at all! :sing









(that's ice on the inside of the visor)





Literally every single gas station I stopped at on that trip, there was at least one.... "isn't it a little cold to be on that thing??" :lmao


But no I'm not addicted... not at all :sing

I didn't ride much last winter when it was cold, but thats not because it was too cold. Just decided not too. I ride when I want to, 95 or 35, doesn't matter. Though colder weather does tend to play a role in how bad I want to get out and ride.

Thanks! My buddy took that as I was leaving his place in Columbus, OH on my way back to Atlanta, GA. That 17 degrees was the high for the day... it was a 350 mile trip from Decatur, IL to Columbus, OH, this picture was taken in Montezuma, Indiana about 1:30 pm. This was the temp earlier in the day not too long before I left




And it was 15 when I got to Columbus. Thank god for heated grips.... I was fine except my feet kept getting cold

hasnt gotten to a point where you cant ride, but it is getting colder. when i first started to ride, i used to ride when it was high 30s in beginning of march when there was still snow. its right around 40s and 50s now. still good to ride, but just decided to put her away soon before it gets too cold.

I wish it snowed here in Texas so I could ride in the snow. Instead we have to deal with black ice here. Gets kinda scary when you do a little fishtailin. Just go straight and dont apply any inputs (gas, brake, turning) till you are through. My imaginary friends dont think Im nuts.
