thats right boys and girls i'm done riding for the year.i am going to park my bike in betty & mr boops garage sometime next week. i have come to the conclusion that i need an electric jacket an right now its not in my buget. i rode early today as well as thursday and came home with inflamation in my right shoulder and rather than irritate it by riding i am just going to park the bike till spring

Yeah I haven't admitted defeat but its fuckin cold...

Oh man, not me, though I can certainly understand why.

I spent most of yesterday riding and noticed last night that I was pretty stiff and sore in my legs after I got home and thawed out for awhile.

Last year I crashed a bike and jacked my knees and toes pretty good. Besides the two knee surgery's, all the damage really aggravated the arthritis, so my cold weather rides need to be more limited. And I spent alot of that time reminding myself to watch all the wet leafes on the ground too, which will get worse for a while as well.

Definitely a different mind set now, and paying more attention to what our bodys have to say about being out in this weather.

I've been thinking about putting some kind of windsheild on my bike to help with winter riding, but that's up in the air; I'm not a fan of windsheilds at all. Not yet anyway.* ;)

Doug I feel that, I haven't been real cold yet, but I know the difference before I got the windshield early on before summer when I first got my bike it was nippy and the wind on the hwy was a mess.

Looks like I'll be doing some riding this week... woot woot!!!

I've been out everyday, and today is pretty nice, but tomorrow will be better.

I've got a small laid back windshield on order that flares out towards the sides a bit to block wind off the grips too. I'm going to use that thru the fall and winter to try to cut out some chill, and then just take it off during the summer.

I was out on Friday afternoon for a while... it was gorgeous for riding.* This weekend was too busy with things, but tomorrow afternoon I'll be out there for sure.

Just put mine up yesterday.* The ride was good, just a little slippery, but not to cold.
