Still Riding....

Nov 18th and no snow in sight....sunny and 45 today. Though the little yellow snowflake was illuminated brightly by time I got home!

snow tires

The bike is in the garage for the winter and snow tires are on the Subaru. I'm finished riding for the year.

I'm sorry to hear that. Going an entire season without 2 wheels is depressing.

Cool

I avoid the shadowy mountain passes this time of year, but I did manage a quick 120 mile run today with mid-30 F. temps. Bright blue sunny skies make all the difference! Just turned over 7,000 miles today. I really need new tires NOW.

Just rode to work this morning and it's 34f degrees. My heated Corbin seat really made the difference!

With no snow in the forecast and temps hitting 40, looks like I'll be riding into Dec this year! Over 9,000 miles and counting....

First morning commute of the season with the "freeze warning" light on. Just getting started.

Note to self: Never ride a motorcycle in stilettos and a miniskirt.
