It's a sad day when you put it up for winter.

Why would you put it up for the winter?

That seems like a very bad idea right from the start.  Especially with a passenger!

+1  :thumbs: negative 5 at my house this morning and snow covered roads. But the sun will come out, it will eventually warm up to the 40's and the roads will clear. I'll be riding again within a month.

The only time my Concours sits is when we have this @#$%$#@ snow that's coming down right now. Three days top and we will be back on the road, I hope.

It's kind of like summer in San Francisco only with white rain and slippery streets.

I know, I lived in SJ for 10 years. I do remember some cold nights at Candle Stick in the middle of summer. I was referring to Mark Twain's famous quote.

Nice bike collection!

I frequently have a hard time deciding weather to motor or pedal it.
