I would have loved to get some more riding in especially since I just bought the bike a little over a month ago but the highs have been in the low 40's and I don't see much improvement in the forecast. When it's only hitting 42 deg. for about 15 minutes around noon my 135 pound butt doesn't do so well. Lost a finger on my left hand and really cold weather is no longer my friend these days. That being said, I just changed out the oil and put some fuel stabilizer in it. The list for other additions this winter is Hard Kore baffles for the dragsters, sissy bar, some kind of windshield/fairing, saddle bags and maybe a rack to add a T-bag at some point.....
Lowered it 2inches, during the last mini cold front...no to do some more riding. Never really gets to cold to ride in Northwest Florida.

Definitely not riding, it has been stored away and on the tender for almost a month already. We already have about 30cm (1 foot) of snow and have seen the temperature get into the -20C (-4F).
I might have a manjina for that, but at least it's a toasty manjina.

Depends on the weather. Snow, I cover her up with her blanket and wait. Sun, I ride. Temperature is not an issue.. Dress warm, just like mom use to tell me....YES MOM! I have my long-johns and scarf on!!! Sheeesh.. If it's a long wet winter, paint....

I'm not afraid of heights but I hate gravity! ❦
I installed an Fi2000r before I parked it.
I will be adding a Mustang Seat, should be here tomorrow. I'm getting a Mustang sissy bar pad, white front turn signal lenses, red rears. Hopefully highway pegs, a liscence plate frame light with a personalized plate with my initials. In the late winter early spring I will be getting my cracked front fender fixed and painted. Missing riding every step along the way....
I plan on riding mine and freezing my butt off. And I am going to add driver floorboards.
