Must be a sad time for you Blokes having to put you bikes away for the winter...Don't know how i'd handle that.  :003:
Due to recent financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off until further notice.

I will not put it away for the winter! Will still drive it, but not as much as during our "warm" season. Ice, snow and salt on the road will result in a no go!

In our country motorbikes could ride around the year.
With low temperatures in winter (between 0ºC and 5ºC  :190:) we still go out with bikes at weekends to have "warm" breakfasts   :169:
It doesn’t matter the fast you go, but the far you arrive ...

a few years ago i had to travel to my work everyday. 60miles round trip on all weather even sleet and snow. it almost put me off biking for a while but in the end the thought of scooting around on my bike at the time (FZ750) was too much and I stuck with it. To be honest it has to be really really bad weather before I don't go out on the bike....and if I have made a plan to meet someone I will go whatever the weather.

Ride all year round. Only snow actually settled on the road will force me from the bike to the train for my daily commute.

A covering of ACF50 and I will be using as normal bar snow and ice for the commute, no long runs during the winter unless its a dry sunny day  :031:
