I ride year round here in Hoosier land. Have been for 30 years. Michelen still needs a good snow tire though.

I rode in the snow in Colorado in JULY!  Good times riding in  snow indeed   :D

I had on the heated suit I use when I take the bike and go visit GA and the Carolinas in the winter

Nice weather but no good roads in Florida, big reason why you ride in Tenn/NC so much. ;)

I put the beer in a cooler on the back rack, the bike still seems to run very well. I only live about 75 miles from SiSF, so he can fix it if it starts running bad. ;) I wonder if his jet kit is tuned for beer...
