Thank you for all the responses. Storage plans are probably in the street covered, free but have to move it every 72 hours. Parking is $200/mo, even at places like uhaul. I payed that the first 18 months we lived here for my car and realized for that money I could buy another vehicle. I grew up in the Midwest and always had a garage so leaving a motorcycle outside, in my old mindset, was outrageous. The weather here is very mild compared to Illinois so you guys are right I could buy now and ride now with some warmer gear.
Brisky mentally it seems harder to leave a brand new bike out as opposed to one I had ridden all season but that thought process is kind of irrational.
Bville-Bud what gear are you using? Also, does anyone have any recommendations for gear for my wife, for example should we have the same stuff or will she be warmer being shielded by me?
alfie53 my wife is going to be a passenger so she isn't looking independently. My main concern is in 3 months I'll paying the same for a used bike. Not that I care if something is brand new or used but the bike will have less wear and tear, brakes, tires, ect. From that point of view what are your thoughts?
Thanks again everybody, I added my past bikes in my signature.
