Ohio needs me here in the Winter, although I am sure I will visit before Winters end.

AWESOME let us know

Not looking forward to the whole winter thing.
A little jealous.

My truck told me it was 33 degrees here in Michigan this morning......I'm not ready for this yet but I will still ride so long as the road isn't white. I just stay closer to home when it's winter so I don't get stuck in a snow storm.
No, really, she is the best and I can prove it...

I ride all year. I've been ridden below zero. I just don't recommend it. I will not use gas stabilizer, so I must keep the gas flowing.
I'll be down to Florida next winter doing the whole Disney thing with my wife and 4 kids. I don't think I'll be able to sneak the C-14 on the plane though.

I am a year round outdoor worker anyway. So it is something you have to get used to.

I ride all year round as well. As long as the streets are ice and snow free. Heated grips are a MUST!

Come to California, we have great weather, manageable humidity, manageable mosquitos and some of the best roads in the world. Plus you better hurry, cause its gunna fall into the ocean during the next big earthquake.

Do you have any Italian seismologists who can tell us when that might be?    ;)

But have allot of stupid laws there too, but the good roads and weather might trump that.  8)

I had a bike in Florida when I lived there. I think I remember going around one curve, but I am not sure if my mind is playing tricks on me. I will take the colder weather and the curvy roads any day.

Florida has the best curves in the country.  A few of them can be found at JenningsGP, Daytona, Morrosso, Homestead-Miami and I'm sure I'm forgetting a few   :D

If you haven't road these curves, you're missing out.

I grew up in that area but never heard of T back. Tiger Tail beach was awesome! WAY back in the day when they allowed such things we used to camp out on that beach, fishing all night and rode dune buggies during the day. Good times.
