    Winter is coming

    well in my part of the world the days are getting shorter and colder, bike will be put into storage by the end of this month or first sign of salt spreaders. What do you guys do during the winter months? Ride or not?

      As long as it's not slippery and there is not too much salt on te roads I keep on riding.

      In Poland it's starting the same weather. But only snow can stop me. Other wise I try to ride every day.

        As long as its dry I keep on riding...ACF the bike excessively beginning of November and don't clean it til Spring. This has worked really well on my last bikes: GS, RT & XR and none of them showed any rust.

        As for the cold...loads of layers, heated grips and seat cranked up...can't go wrong. Unless it's ice or snow then I'm tucked up in my car.
