    I usually ride my bike until they start salting the roads...usually sometime in Dec. is when I put mine up...but if the roads are clean...I will still ride...

    Unfortunately I have not Lee. I'm healing very well but I think ill wait till spring at this point. This way I'm surely at 100% to go. Thanks for asking my friend.

    I just store mine in the garage where it usually parks. I much like already stated, will "keep it out" till the salt flies. I don't like to ride under 35* for icy reasons but typically just the salt keeps me from riding. I may try somin else this year... due to low miles this year on my oil, I may just not "winterize" it this winter. We shall see....

    I'm getting a 25K service done on Friday, that will do for "winterizing", but I'll still try to get out at least 1X/month through the winter as I always try to do.
