I guess I will finally do it

Hello everyone, been a while since I said hello.

Well since mother nature has forced my hand (%^^^^^^ snow), I guess this weekend I will put a heater in the garage and install my replacement grill that I purchased a while back and install my saddlebags bracket while I wait for the snow to melt. I been too busy trying to get as much riding in as possible before the change of weather to do them.

Last year, I did not mind the snow that much..this year I HATE THE SNOW.

ah yeah i know what you mean, it can be horrible, especially when it's really cold out with these extreme cold temperatures.

Not sure where you live, but I am in northern NY. Won't be ANY riding here until April, unless we get an early spring, but I doubt it.
I totally agree with you... I HATE snow too. I would love to move south where I can ride all year, or most of it anyway. Here, if you ride in the cold, you might get 7-8 months of riding on a good year. My bike was put up for the winter by mid-November this year due to early snow and cold temps, and will most likely be mid-April before I get it out. That is 5 months with no riding... I think I will go read another thread now, this is depressing.

I've always kept a heater in my garage. Since moving to the Great NW I've used an electric/oil heater set on low just to keep the "chill" off and it usually stays above 60F even when there's snow on the ground. While in SoCal I just used a regular incandescent light bulb as they put out enough heat for that mild climate. Yes, it costs a few dollars a month but it's much better for cars and motorcycles to keep them warm all winter long.




Always remember that for every mile of highway there are two miles of ditches.

Let us know where you are located @Beauty and the Beast

Winter sucks for motorcycle riders. I hear you. At least we get some really long days during the summer in the north. That is what I look forward to when the winter makes me blue.
