This was I thought may be the last ride of the season but next week looks like there may be a few more days, so I delayed winterizing a bit longer.
If its 40'ish or above, I gear up and go. The weather is a bit milder here than for you, but it's do-able in these parts. Never say never.

We have rain in the forecast until Tuesday I do not deliberately ride in the rain.

I took mine out for a nice ride today.
Wife and I cruised around for a few hours.
Got home and put in resting spot for time being.
Jumped off and cause had to the urge to let water fly. LOL
Came back to bike laying on it's side. :-(
I don't think I had kickstand in locked position so it rolled forward and over.
Don't see anything wrong with it. Just saddens me to see it like that.

Today I gave my Nadine (my bike) a bath, then rode the heck out of her!

Took mine for a nice ride, but ended up on the interstate where everyone was passing me. I kept speeding up, and finally there was no one passing me. I glanced at the tach which was showing 5400 rpm. WTH, I looked at the speedo to see 97 mph! And I thought you couldn't take a 900 out on the highway! LOL

Are you sure you weren't in Indy? Those drivers are nuts.

Put a new battery in it and changed the oil. Interstate and Amsoil.

Changed the fork oil...much easier than I had anticipated. And I saved a wad of cash doing it myself! What a great sense of accomplishment

Nothing. But, I did buy two qts. of oil (already had some leftover from a case) in anticipation of changing for winter storage .

What a great day November 12 and nearly 70 degrees and sun. I gassed up the bike and headed north. to Cheboygan and back. Found a new, to me, dinner in Conway. Very northern Michigan. This will likely be the end of my riding season. With deer season starting next week the deer will be moving and quite a hazard.
